The message below (show in yellow) is a good example of the “Dying Widow Scam.” The sender claims to be a wealthy widow with no children who needs your help in giving away her fortune before she dies. Alas, there really is no wealthy widow and no fortune — there’s just a scammer trying to pick your pocket. Don’t be fooled!

SUBJ: Re /
Dearest one in the Lord.
It is my pleasure to write to you after considering your profile My name is STELLA GALLAS a nationality of Kuwait. I am married to MR.MARTINS GALLAS who worked with Kuwait Company in United Kingdom for nine years before he died in the year 2006. We were married for eleven years without a child; he died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians.
When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $8.3Million (Eight Million three hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with a BANK in London Presently, this money is still with the BANK. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want you to use this fund for churches, orphanages, Research centres and widows propagating to the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.
The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this bold decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband’s relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision.
I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going to. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the BANK. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my Shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.
Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here in.
Hoping to hearing from you soon.
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
MRS. STELLA GALLAS
