    A new twist on an old scam

    I know we've all seen this one before, but this was my first experience at receiving it quite like this. My personal favorite part is "slain to death." I didn't know there was any other way to be slain?

    From:Mrs Caroline Solange Haafkens of Netherlands
    I am Mrs Caroline Solange Haafkens from Netherlands.
    I am married to Dr.Franklyn Haafkens who worked with
    ChevronTexaco in Nigeria for twenty years before he
    died in the year 2000.We were married for twenty-seven
    years without a child. He died during one of the riot
    in the Niger delta region of Nigeria.He was held
    hostage and slain to death by protesting youths of the
    Before his death we were both born again
    christians.Since his death I decided not to re-marry . When my late
    husband was alive he deposited the sum of (Eight Million six hundred
    thousand U.S.Dollars)with a bank in the Netherlands Presently, this money is
    still with the bank and the
    management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come
    forward to receive the money or rather issue a letter
    of authorisation to somebody to receive it on my
    behalf if I can not come over.

    Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I
    have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have
    since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I
    have only a few months to live.
    It is my last wish to see that this money is invested
    the proceed at the end of every year distributed among
    charity organisation.
    I want a person that is God fearing that will use this
    money to fund churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of
    God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us
    to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth.I took this decision
    because i know that there are alot of poor people suffering from
    different kind
    of disease and nobody to come to their aid.
    With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive
    your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank.
    I will also issue you a letter of authority that will
    prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund.You are
    to help me invest this funds into real estate and
    stocks.You will be entitled to 10% of every profit you
    make in a year.
    Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I
    stated herein.
    Hoping to hearing from you soon.
    waiting for your reply

    Yours in Christ,
    Mrs Caroline Solange Haafkens
