Has someone offered you a huge sum of money or a valuable consignment? It's a 419 or advance fee fraud - find out how they work, and what to do to be safe.

A supposedly dying widow with a lot of money that needs to be put on your bank account so that you can spend it on charity. If there really was a rich woman who wanted to give her money to charity, then she would have given the money to the well known charity organisations. But there is no dying widow nor is there millions of dollars.

My Beloved,

Compliments of the day to you! By this e-mail I do sincerely apologize for
my intrusion of your privacy. However, My name is Mrs Tara Lartey. Based
in Sweden I'm 58 years old suffering from a long time chronic kidney
disease. From all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and it
is quite obvious that according to my doctors they have advised me that I
may not live for the next two months this is because the cancer has gotten
to a very bad stage which I believe you might be of help and for this
reason I contact you, Let this not sound strange to you.

I was brought up in an orphanage and was married to my late husband for
twenty years without a child. He worked with SHELL OIL COMPANY for thirty
years before he died in Air France Concorde flight 4590 crash On 25th of
July 2000 with other passengers aboard. We were true believers and Since
his death I decided not to re-marry. Before my husband's death he
deposited the sum of $5.6Million (Five Million and six Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) with a Security finance firm which i can only
divuldge to you at the receipt of your acceptance in helping us out of
this mission. Presently this money is still with them and the management
just wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for
keeping it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody
to receive it on my behalf since I cannot come over because of my illness
or they get it confiscated.

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital in United Kingdom where I have
been undergoing treatment for this severe decrease. My doctors have told
me that I have only a few months to live and It is my last wish to see
that this money is invested to any organization of your choice and
distributed each year among charity organizations, the poor and the
motherless babys homes.
I want you as God fearing person to also use this money to fund church,
mosque, orphanages and assist widows.
I took this decision before I rest in peace because my time will so on be
up. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
Security Finance Firm and I will also issue you a letter of authority that
will prove you as the new beneficiary of the funds. Remember your religion
cannot stop you from doing God's work. Please assure me that you will act
accordingly as I stated herein Thank you.

Waiting for your reply.
Yours Sincerely,
Mrs Tara Lartey.

Being a victim doesn't mean you stand alone. We're here to help you.
