Scam Letters targeting Christians
Be careful of Scam Letters targeting Christians. Not everyone who claims to be a Christian, or who writes in the name of Jesus - is truthful or honest.
Only God knows the heart. So if we don't know, we take the necessary precautions.
Here is one example of letter I received:
From:Mrs rose williams
St.Theresa General Hospital Williams Close 12 Rue,
Cocody,Abidjan,Cote d' Ivoire.
Department of cancer ward j Block 23 Room 4,
My Greeting to you.
Dearest and Beloved in the Lord,
Calvary greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am Sister rose williams. from Sierra-Leone. I am married to Dr. williams Ebruphyo who worked with cote d' lvoire Embassy for nine years before he died on the 15th August 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Ever before his death we were both born again Christians and have sown into many ministries. Since his death I decided not to remarry, but feeling quite lonely if not the Lord who has been my partner and comforter. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $11,000,000 (Eleven million united states dollars) into a metal truck box with security company here in abidjan the capital city of cote d' lvoire. During the depostion of this a metal box into a security company, by my late husband he don't tell the security company the real content of this box it's only deposited it's as family valuable not as money due to security reasons. Presently this consignmentis still in the custody of the security company in Cote d' lvoire. Recently, 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. I want a church, organization or good person that will use these consignmentis to help the orphans, widows and other people that need financial assistance. Using part of this consignmentis to provide fac ilities for God's work, taking the gospel to greater height is my major reason of donating these funds out. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that grivet". l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this consignmentis and my husband relatives are not Christians and it had been their wish to see my husband dead in order that they might inherit his wealth since we have no son. These people are therefore not worthy of this inheritance. This is why I am taking this decision. Meanwhile I am not afraid of death.hence I know where I am going. It is only a sinner who's death is painful I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development and l know that With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company in Cote d' lovire and also intro duce you as the beneficiary of the consignmentis. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in truth and faith, "serving him with all you have, knowing that naked we come and naked we must go"
