I finally got one... After all the years I've been on the internet... lol

Dear Friend,
I am Mrs. Barbara Gunnarsson from Iceland, married to Late Engr Brown Gunnarsson

SUPPLIER in Saudi Arabia for 19 years before he died on the 25th of August,
2008. We were married for twenty four years without a child. He died after a

brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death, he deposited the
sum of 6,142,728.00 US Dollars with a bank In Canada and this fund is

presently with the bank awaiting my disbursement as beneficiary and next of kin
to the funds. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next

eight months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition, I decided to
donate this fund to a church, organization or good person that will utilize this

money in good faith.
I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this
money. I kept this deposit secret till date, this is why I am taking this

decision. I don't think I will need any telephone communication in this regard
because of the confidentiality of this transfer. Upon your reply I shall give

you the contact of the bank. I will also issue a letter of authorization to the
bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. Reply to my

Await your responds and God bless you.
Mrs. Barbara Gunnarsson

i replied and i got this long email...i think its so fake coz she goes on like im the only person she sent the email to and she attached a picture of her and her late husband...i will google up the picture and see who the people in the pic r...1 sec but here's the email:

Good day to you,

I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and I want to assure you that you will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do. Although we know each other for the first time but I believe our father has directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because I saw your profile on a list of registered email addresses provided to me by Microsoft list from which I picked you.

Be assured you stand no risk as this is my money, I and my late husband labored for it and me as the next of kin has the sole power to donate the funds to whoever I want. I am a born again christian and take delight only in the things of our father as I have prayed a lot on this already and I believe so much in the manifestation of Christ that I know he will not fail me so I want you to know that you have to be strong in your faith as he {Almighty} will surely strengthen you. My husband’s relatives are not christians and they have used my husband’s wealth and property left behind for worldly things. As I am here in the hospital they are around me and they have sold virtually all I have here in Solomon Island that my husband and I labored for and what they wait to hear is that I am dead so that they lay their hands on my last belongings here on earth but that does not bother me because things of the earth are canal and there is an eternal home for me which there is enough enjoyment. I do not want them to know about this deposit that is why I am communicating with you only on email and I am making communication with the finance firm also who understands my predicament. All I need is your absolute trust, commitment, confidentiality and honesty because I want to see my late husbands vision fulfilled before I leave this sinful world. My spirit directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for someone to help me since I can no longer trust my family members and friends and I do not want this particular deposit to be used for things of the world.
I will want you to get back to me that you will be absolutely honest about this transaction and you will use this money to the Glory of God. Also you have to assure me you will keep this transaction confidential and you will be willing to contact the finance firm which is located in Canada which has branches in the United Kingdom and finalize all necessary formalities as to the release of the fund to you. I will also want to know a little more about you regarding your life, your spiritual life, what you do for a living so as for me to know you will be able to complete this. At the moment I cannot write much because of my health and I do not know when my time will be up so I require your urgent response if you are trustworthy and willing to help me finalize this transactions that I will immediately write my chamber to prepare a court injunction/power of attorney making you beneficiary to my fund as all other documents are with the finance firm as I sent it to them for safe keeping so my family members will not lay their hands on it. To prepare this document I will require your full names and address. With this document you will contact the finance firm to arrange the transfer of the fund to you. As soon as you have received the fund then you will help me set up charity or distribute it to charity organizations and hospitals. God permitting, I pray to be alive when you receive this fund and start this project so that you can visit me here if you wish to.
Mrs. Barbara Gunnarsson.

I knew this was a scam but since I have heard about these high dollar scam's, I thought I would take the bait and see what would happen.

I have been documenting every step of his process because it could makte for a good TV article.

Yesterday,I actually got a response back from the bank.
It said this:
"Good day to you. Sequel to your mail and enquiries to us regarding a deposit File Reference No: HBL/2009/678/51829/CA-UK, we advise that you send to us the contract papers appointing you as the beneficiary to Mrs. Gunnarsson's Funds.

I remain yours truly,

I was surprised that the Bank actually responded. I forwarded the message to 'Barbara' and asked her for these contract letters.

I'll keep you posted

Jonathan said...

I ma doing the same, so far I am at the same stage where the "bank" has asked for the contract papers. All with the same deposit file reference number mind you.

Anyway I am sure that at some stage the "bank" will ask for a deposit to open the account and that will be the scam.

Jonathan said...

I keep blessing her and saying that she will be saved when she dies and that this gift will buy her a place in heaven. Yet despite these cynical comments they keep sending the mails.

More to follow.

My first mail cane from I wrote to this univerity but they have not responsed.

Edgar said...

And this is the rub where the scam comes in, it seems quite reasonable to deposit an amount to open an account. I wonder how many people actually do it?
