I received this yesterday in my e-mail...pretty sad...looks like they moved from Nigera to Japan. Just wanted to pass on this age old scam to you! Alls I can do is shake my head and wonder if people really do fall for this.
My name is Madam. YU Sheng, I am a dying woman who has decided to donate what I have to charity Organization through you. You may be wondering why I choose you.
But someone has to be chosen. I am 54 years old and suffering for cancer about 7 years ago, my husband who had left me everything he worked for and also my family relatives were a victim of the recent Japan earthquake.
I have been touched by the lord to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to charity Organization through you for the good work of humanity.
I have asked the lord to forgive me all my sins and I believe he has, because He is merciful. I will be going in for an operation, and I pray that I survive the operation.
I have decided to WILL/Donate the sum of US 106 Million Dollars to the charity Organization through you for the good work of the lord, and to help the motherless, less privileged and also for the assistance of the widows.
At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls because I can hardly talk, and I have been restricted by my doctor from taking telephone calls because I deserve all the rest I can get.
Presently, I have informed my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund to charity through you. I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.
If you are interested in carrying out this task, please provide the following informations stated below:
NO 1: YOUR FULL NAME.

NO 3: CONTACT TELEHONE NUMBER. (HOME TELEPHONE AND MOBILE TELEPHONE).

NO 6: YOUR PASSPORT COPY OR DRIVER'S LICENSE.
NO 7: YOUR COMPLETE BANKING ACCOUNT DETAILS ( BANK NAME, BANK ADDRESS, BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER, BANK SWIFT CODE, BANK ROUTING NUMBER,YOUR ACOCUNT NAME AND YOUR BANK TELEPHONE NUMBER).
I know I have never met you before, after my prayers, my mind tells me to do this, and I hope you act sincerely. When the money is in your account, you will take 30% of the total amount and give the balance to the charity organization in your country.
NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished, as I don't want anything that will jeopardize my last wish,
Please forward the requested informations to my private email address: yu.sheng@.us so that I will advise you what to do to receive this fund valued US106 million dollars into your account in your country to enable you start the charity mission.
