I can't believe that this kind of garbage would work on anyone. Why do these idiots insist on flooding the Internet with this crap on a continuous basis? What can be done about it?

A CRY FOR HELP,

MY NAME IS BARRY DAVID , A NATIVE OF BRITAIN , I HAVE DIAGNOSED WITH
ESOPHAGEAL CANCER THAT WAS DISCOVERED VERY LATE DUE TO MY LAXITY IN CARING
FOR MY HEALTH. IT HAS DEFILED ALL FORM OF MEDICINE AND RIGHT NOW, I HAVE
ONLY ABOUT A FEW MONTHS TO LIVE ACCORDING TO MEDICAL EXPERTS. I HAVE NOT
PARTICULARLY LIVED MY LIFE SO WELL, AS I NEVER REALLY CARED FOR ANYONE NOT

THOUGH I AM VERY RICH, I WAS NEVER GENEROUS, I WAS ALWAYS HOSTILE TO
PEOPLE
AND ONLY FOCUS ON MY BUSINESS AS THAT WAS THE ONLY THING I CARED FOR. BUT
NOW I REGRET ALL THIS AS I NOW KNOW THAT THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN JUST
WANTING TO HAVE OR MAKE ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD. I BELIEVE WHEN GOD
GIVES ME A SECOND CHANCE TO COME TO THIS WORLD I WOULD LIVE MY LIFE A
DIFFERENT WAY FROM HOW I HAVE LIVED IT. NOW THAT I KNOW MY TIME IS NEAR, I
HAVE WILLED AND GIVEN MOST OF MY PROPERTIES AND ASSETS TO MY IMMEDIATE AND
EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS AND AS WELL AS A FEW CLOSE FRIENDS.

I HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE ALMS TO CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS, AS I WANT THIS TO BE
ONE OF THE LAST GOOD DEEDS I DO ON EARTH. SO FAR, I HAVE DISTRIBUTED MONEY
TO SOME CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS IN AFRICA , U.A.E, LONDON AND IRELAND. NOW
THAT MY HEALTH HAS DETERIORATED SO BADLY, I CANNOT DO THIS MY SELF ANY
MORE. I ONCE ASKED MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY TO CLOSE ONE OF MY ACCOUNTS AND
DONATE THE MONEY, WHICH I HAVE THERE TO CHARITY ORGANIZATION IN BULGARIA ,
THEY REFUSED AND KEPT THE MONEY TO THEMSELVES. HENCE, I DO NOT TRUST THEM
ANYMORE, AS THEY SEEM NOT TO BE CONTENDED WITH WHAT I HAVE LEFT FOR THEM.

THE LAST OF MY MONEY WHICH IS THE HUGE CASH DEPOSIT THAT I HAVE WITH A
FINANCIAL INSTITUTE ABROAD .I WILL WANT YOU TO HELP ME COLLECT THIS
DEPOSIT
AND DISPATCHED IT TO CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS. I AM WRITING THIS FROM MY
LAPTOP COMPUTER IN MY SICKBED WHERE I WAIT FOR MY TIME TO COME. I PRAY
THAT
GOD USES YOU TO SUPPORT ME.

LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR HEARING FROM YOU.

MR BARRY DAVID

Hello

My name is Ms. Virginia RETY born 31-May-1948, a widow without children, and a native of Ile-de-France in the 75008th district, 26 Avenue Matignon.
I am contacting you this way because I want to communicate with the world and do something I should not have to be. I suffer from brain cancer in terminal phase, and my days are no longer a needle thread from the last analysis the scanner that my doctor told me to justify myself the ball that settles in my brain for over four years. I am sterile, ie no children, I plan to donate part of my property. I worked in the oil industry for two years at the national refinery company (SIR) Abidjan, I want some of that money is paid to various associations, orphanages and people in need. no matter who you are I wish you from my heart to donate this money valued at approximately ? 2,903,000 (two million nine hundred three thousand euros), which until now held in an escrow account in a bank étrangère.Je suffers greatly as I can
hardly get to sleep, tormented to know what would my investment money after my death, I though it ends up in the hands of a conscious person who has the fear of God with an open heart and generous can use it well, but who? I do not know! If you can accept with all my heart and consciously use it, please let me know, please!

May the Peace and mercy of God be with you
Ms. VIRGINIA RETY

Hi Billo!
Good to point out for a discussion. It really does! since all are not as wise as you are! the world is full of diversity and so all types of thinking levels exist both in the real and virtual world. It would not be such wide spread if it was not successful. I don't say that their victims would have been only the naive ones, since greed is such a emotion which sometimes may influence the wisdom too.

Sad fact is this kind of spam does work. It if it once in 100 thousand times that is enough to get the scammers to do it again. I think everyone knows PT Barnum's opinion on the subject...
