    A scam to watch out for

    I just recieved an email that i know is a scam. I got it from [email protected]. this is what it said....

    Dear Beloved in Christ,
    It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, knowing the truth and the
    truth have set me free. Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do
    what is lawful and right in the sight of God for
    eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God´s mercy and glory
    upon my life.I have the pleasure to share my testimony with you, having
    seen your contact from the Internet. I am Barrister Peter Afordi, the legal
    adviser to late Mr. and Mrs. David Smith, a British couple that lived in my
    Country Nigeria for 25 years before they both died in the plane crash late
    last year. These couples were good Christians, they so dedicated to God
    but they had no child till they died. Throughout their stay in my country,
    they acquired a lot of properties like lands, house properties, etc.As their
    legal adviser, before their death, the husband Mr. David Smith instructed
    me to write his WILL.
    Because they had no child, they dedicated their wealth to God.
    According to the WILL, the properties have to be sold and the money be
    given out to a ministry for the work of God.
    As their legal adviser, all the documents for the properties were in
    my care. He gave me the authority to sell the properties and give out the
    fund to the Ministries for the work of God.
    In short, after their death, I sold all the properties as instructed and I was
    able to realized $2,000,000.00 (tWO million
    US dollars). Instead of giving the fund out for the work of God as
    instructed by the owner before his death, I converted the fund to myself
    with the intention of investing the fund abroad
    for my personal use. I was afraid of putting the fund in the Bank, because I
    have to give account to the bank on
    how I got the money. I then packaged the fund in consignments and
    deposited the consignments with a security company. I did not want the
    management of the Security Company to know the content of the
    consignments, therefore I registered the content of the consignments as
    Gold Bars. Now, the security company believes that what I deposited with
    them was Gold Bars. I had encounter with Christ when
    Pastor Benny Hinn was preaching on television concerning Ananias and
    Saphira in Acts 5:1-11. After hearing the word of God, I gave my life to
    Christ and became a born again Christian. As a born again Christian, I
    started reading my bible and one day, the Lord opened my eyes to Ezekiel
    33: 18 and 19 where the word of God says: "When the righteous truth from
    his righteousness, and committee iniquity, he shall even die thereby. But if
    the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and
    right, he shall live thereby". From the scripture, I discovered that the only
    way I could have peace in my life is to do what is lawful and right by
    giving out the fund as instructed for the work of God by the owner before
    his death.I have asked God for forgiveness and I know that God have
    forgiven me. But I have to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God by
    giving out the fund to the chosen ministry for the purpose of God's wok as
    instructed by the owner before his death.After my fasting and prayers, I
    asked God to make his choice and direct me to a honest Christian or the
    chosen ministry that deserves this fund by his Grace. I then came across
    your address on the Internet as I was browsing through a Christian site,
    and as a matter of fact, it is not only you or your ministry that I picked on
    the Christian site initially, but after my fervent prayer over it, then you
    were nominated to me through divine revelation from God, so these are
    how I received such a divine revelation from the Lord, how I got your
    contact information, and I then decided to contact you for the fund to be
    used wisely for things that will glorify the name of God.I have notified the
    Security Company where I deposited the consignments that contained the
    fund, that I am moving the consignment abroad and the security company
    has since been waiting for my authority for the consignment to leave my
    country and move to abroad.So if you know that you will use this fund
    honestly for things that will glorify God's name, then do urgently contact
    me and the details will be given to you on how you will be able to receive
    the fund in your country through the security company.You should also
    forward to me your contact address, telephone and fax number for easy
    communication .Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.
    Yours in Christ.
    Barrister Peter Afordi.

    Yeh thats a scam but question is why does he want your adress and phone number does he know your real name he probably wants to steal your identity.Do you think you could make the letters smaller though , my eyes hurt now :(

    anything that mentions God and Christians is a scam.
    The Catholic Church has been doing this for centuries
    and look how rich it is.


    ps the word Nigeria is also a big no-no.
    This is closely followed by Romania and Russia.
    If you see these countries in any of your emails then run away.
