Christian 419 Scam

I received this email addressed exactly to my email address bypassing all the well trained spam filters, and with a slightly different Reply-To address than the From address:From: Agatha Adams agathaadams02@yahoo.fr Signed-By: yahoo.frReply-To: agatha.adams002@yahoo.frTo: [My email address goes here]Date: Aug 20, 2007 3:25 AMSubject: Most holy greetingsGate Ethumanitaire 21 B P715 kumassi, Abidjan 00268Abidjan-Cote d’ IvoireDearest in Christ Jesus,Most holy greetings in most holy name of the only true God and Lord our saviour Jesus Christ, May the holy spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. I’m Mrs. Agatha Hope Adams from Bolivia ; I married to Mr. Francis Adams, who worked with Bolivia Embassy in Cote d’ Ivoire for sixteen years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for twenty years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Holy Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $$$2.5.Million under suspense account in one of the famous banks here in Abidjan – Cote d’Ivoire for safe keeping. Presently, my Doctor confirmed to me that I have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Heaven known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to a Christ believer that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein according to Proverbs 22:9,Matthew 6:3. I want a believer that will use this fund for, orphanages, helping Deaf homes , propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is maintained. For Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives”. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace”. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always for I don’t want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I will give you the contact of the bank here in Abidjan . I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or born again individual for this same purpose.Please assure me that you will do accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply soon.Remain blessed in the Lord.Yours in Christ,Mrs. Agatha Hope AdamsStockage illimité de vos mails avec Yahoo! Mail.
