Best scam letter of 2009

Please excuse this humble email if it offends your sensibilities, but I have no other means to contact you. I cannot talk on the telephone, so I did a search for your email address, which I found on the International Business Directorate Email Data Search. My name is Mrs. M Vandouf, I’m a 52 years old woman.

I am a widow who is dying of Esophageal cancer. I was married to Peterz Vandouf, an Executive of Shell Oil Company. We are both British people who worked in South Africa until he was killed. Presently, I’m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for Cancer in South Africa.

I have in a security firm the sum of 10,000,000 Pounds Sterling which my husband deposited before he died in a tragic automobile accident where he was killed instantly. Because my doctors informed that I have several weeks to live I must find a good God-fearing person who will see that my money is used for the benefit of the less privileged like homeless orphans and motherless babies.

I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my last wishes, I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few weeks to live, It is my last wish to see this money distributed.

My research says you are just the person I seek. Because you have been found so trustworthy, I will like you to keep 15% for yourselves and give the rest to worthy charity. Maybe you could start the Peterz Vandouf Foundation which will keep my husband name alive.

Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.

Be rest assured that I will sign the necessary Probate Documents to make you the beneficiary. I will also ask a friend, hospital, attendant, Mr. Makolo to discuss with you since I can no longer talk or lost my vocal system to give you the details and finance company where the money was deposited to avoid delay in receiving the money now that I am still alive.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company in South Africa/ Germany and I will send authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of the money in the finance company that is if you assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

I am waiting for your response. Be Bless as you reply positively,

Mrs M. Vandouf
