Gloria C. Mackenzie’s Mystery Offer (scam)

Why bother with an elaborate message if you can hook a scam victim with a short one? This is an example of a mystery scam message, where “Gloria Mackenzie” hopes you will get in touch with her so she can give you a fortune (or more likely, pick your pocket). Does she have a business investment for you? Or money in a forgotten bank account? Or perhaps she’s just another dying widow who wants to give away her fortune.
