This is a classic “wealthy woman dying of cancer” scam. “Olivia Abel” wants your help to distribute her fortune, because she doesn’t trust her family. But she trusts you! (She trusts that she will be able to pick your pocket.)

My Dear in Christ
I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I Believe Everyone will die someday. My name is Mrs. Olivia Abel I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, 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 the Oman, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, 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 no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of united state dollars $72,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security Company. I will want you to dispatch it to charity organizations if only you will be sincere. God be with you.
Mrs. Olivia Abel
NB Please do not share my email address with anyone as I have received some emails from some unscrupulous people claiming to be charity organizations and other weird stories.
