Scam Emails Archive : Advance Fee Fraud/419


From: Mrs Gloria Caldwell <>

This email with the subject "DEAR BELOVED FRIEND." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 25 Oct 2007 12:34:57 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was Mrs Gloria Caldwell <>, although it may have been spoofed.



I know that this letter may be a very big surprise to you, I came

 across your email contact from my personal search and I instructed the

 doctor here in this hospital to help me email you and I believe that you

 will be honest to fulfill my final wish before I will die.



 I am Mrs. Gloria Caldwell from LONDON, I am 58 years old, I am deaf

 and suffering from a long time cancer of the breast, which also affected

 my brain. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and

 my doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond the

 next two months, this is because the cancer stage has reached a

 critical stage. I was brought up in a motherless baby’s home, and was

 married to my late husband for twenty years without a child. My husband and

 I are true Christians, but quite unfortunately, he died in a fatal

 motor accident.

   Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited

 belongings and deposited all the sum of $3.2million dollars with a

 Security Company. Presently, this money is still in their custody, and the

 management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward

 to receive the money after keeping it for so long or rather issue a

 letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can

 not come over as a result of my illness, or they get it confiscated.

 Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing

 treatment. 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 in any

 organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity

 organization, the poor and the motherless baby’s home where I come from. I

 want your good humanitarian, to also use this money to fund churches,

 orphanages and widows around. I must let you know that this was a very

 hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because

 I have no further option. I hope you will help see my last wishes come


  As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the

 Security Company. I will also issue you a letter of authority, which

 will prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds. Please assure me

 that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hope to hear from you



Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Gloria Caldwell
