Here’s a phishing scam (email I recieved today) where where scum pretending to be a rich widow tries to play on your greed.Â The rich widow states that she will give you 10% of 80 Million if you help her.Â They ask for your bank account information and once you give it, you are had!
It’s a complete scam and here it is below:
My name is Mrs. Aisha Yusuf, widow to late Dr Ishmeal Yusuf fomer owner of Petroleum and Gas company, here in Bahrian.
I am 68years old, suffering from long time cancer of the breast.
From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it’s quite obvious that I won’t live more than 2 months according to my doctors.
This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I dont want yourÂ pity but i need your trust.
My late husband died early last year from heart attack, and during the period of our marriage we couldn’t produce any child.
My late husband was very wealthy and after his death,I inherited all his business and wealth.
The doctor has advised me that I will not live for more than 2 months, so I have now decided to spread all my wealth, to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America, Asia and Europe.
I am sorry if you are embarrased by my mail. I found your e-mail address in the web directory,and i have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive,you can ignore it and please accept my appology.
Before my late husband died he was a major oil tycoon,in kuwait and deposited the sum of 80 million dollars (Eigthy million dollars) in a companyÂ some years ago, thats all i have left now,i need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charity.
So that when i die my soul can rest in peace. The funds will be entirely in hands and management.
I hope God gives you the wisdom to touch very many lives,that is my main concern.
10% of this money will be for your time and effort and 5% will be for any miscellanous expenses that may occur during the process of transfering the fund while 85% goes to charity.
PLEASE REPLY ME THROUGH MY PERSONAL EMAIL:
God bless you.
Mrs. Aisha Yusuf.
