I got this in email. They're getting better, but it's still over the top and unrealistic in several ways. But, they matched up last names, which is an improvement.
Dear Beloved One. Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Peace be to you. It is true that this letter may come to you as a surprise. Nevertheless, I humbly ask you to give me your attention and hear me well. I am writing you this letter with the believe you will treat my message with utmost honesty and sincerity of purpose which is my main reason for confiding in you even though I do not really know you before this moment, My name is Mrs. Hilda Davis. I am married to Mr. Johnson Davis. Who worked with Kuwait embassy here in Lome Togo for nine years before he died in the year 2007. We were married for eleven years without a child, He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days and before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($2.5 MILLION U.S.A DOLLARS) in the Security Company here in Lome city of Togo, And recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the lever and stroke). Presently this money is still in the Security Company. Having known my condition I am in need of a honest Hearted Individual Christian or Church that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct herein, I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my late husband to help Less privileged people, Orphanages, Widows and Propagating the word of God. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this fund, And I don't want in away where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision to hand you over this fund. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going, I want you to always remember me in your daily prayers because of my up coming Cancer Surgery. Write back to me as soon as possible because any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose, Hoping to read from you soon, With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the details of this fund, I will also issue you an authorization letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund as soon as i hear from you, REPLY ME BACK TO MY PRIVATE EMAIL ID: email@example.com, May God Bless You, Mrs. Hilda Davis.
