    Check out this email i just recieved...

    My Beloved One In Christ,
    Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Mrs Rebecca Thomas,69
    years old widow & a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer
    of the blood (Leukaemia According to my doctor my condition is critical
    and I might not survive.

    Although as a Christian, I believe in God and I know that I will not die,
    but will live to declare the glory of God. My late husband (Dr. Martins
    Thomas)and my only son were killed during the ABIDJAN-BOUAKE Crisis some
    years back(take a look) Our Lord Jesus Christ is my only comforter.
    I have the sum of Five million, One hundred thousand US Dollars($5.1m) The
    fund is presently deposited with a financial company for security reasons
    and all the documents concerning the fund are in the custody of my lawyer.

    I inherited the money from my late husband who was an industrialist and
    international businessman. I have prayed concerning this donation for
    God's guidance and if in your heart you genuinely and faithfully desire-to
    use this fund for the propagation of God's work in any form whether for
    charity, ministry, evangelical work or otherwise in relation to God's
    work, do get in-touch with me for further arrangements with my lawyer on
    how you will receive my Charity donation.

    God bless you once again and as you receive, give and give God all the
    Glory.

    Remain blessed in the Lord
    Yours in Christ,
    Reply me with this e-mail: mrs_rebecca@gawab.com

    I knew someone would bring up U.S. TV evangelists in this thread sooner or later.

    I see your point. All religions have their share of crazies. Are you implying that Islam is free from this kind of stupidity?

    Because your email address is neither a common Muslim name nor on a server that is known to have lots of Muslim users.
    These scammers do their market research you know. πŸ™‚

    Almost all scams, whether email based or other rely on a few basic principles of human behavior. The most important one is:
    If someone thinks that they will get something for free and especially if they think they are getting it illegally, they jump at the chance and throw caution to the wind, often doing some of the most stupid things you can think of.
    In fact, the 'something for free' principle has been utilized by marketers for centuries.
