This message is an example of the “dying widow scam.” “Muna Hariri” doesn’t have long to live and needs your help to give away her fortune. Who wouldn’t want to help a dying widow? Unfortunately, “Mrs. Muna” is really just a scammer, probably working out of a cheap Internet cafe somewhere in Africa, who really has just one goal: to pick your pocket.
