Hello Dear.

How are you and your family? I am Mrs.Suzan Catim from Solomon Islands. I am married to Mr. Philip Catim who worked with our Embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died 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 Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $6,500,000 million united. State dollars. With a bank here.
Now, I want you to do me a favour to receive this fund there in your country or any safer place. Base on my health condition, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church, organization or good person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church, organization or good person that will use this money for orphanages, widows and other people including one of the nurses that God has used mightily in taking care of me. And in the course of her help to my life, she has lost her job. It will be my almost desire to see even though that I did not make it, let this very young girl have a cost to full fill her future.Also this my dream to be accomplished,
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your response immediately.
Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
l remain yours sister in Christ.
Mrs.Suzan Catim

Hi Carol. I think the sender may have "shotgunned" the post. I also received "her" letter. I did send it to Dave just in case.

Let me know if that works Frillylily.

Have to have a little humor when some one does something so harmful. With the rest of you, sure hope no one falls for it.

Before his death we were both born again Christian.

Guys, this is how you KNOW it is an authentic scam. And not a fake scam.

Wait for it.....


AFTER his death, he wasn't born again Rolling on the floor laughing


I hope she keeps the money, I truly do, because the way her story is going, he COULD be born AGAIN and then they would need the money after she gave it all away! And that would be so sad Crying Hilarious!

A lot of forums are not very well policed and scammers can get away with spamming the heck out of them. But scammer have no idea how rabid NGA members are when it come to spam. Dave and Trish don't have to worry about having anything slip through.

My sweet Step MIL fell for a similar scam right after she got her computer when she was eighty. We found out about it right before she sent the cashiers check. She was almost mad at us, she was thinking we were being mean and not wanting to help that "poor" woman
We showed her pages and pages of snope's scam pages which also included hers.
I hope no one here fell for it Smiling
