KINDLY NOTE THAT SOME IMPOSTERS HAVE STARTED MAKING FORGERY OF MY GOOD NAME
From Mrs Jessika Singh.

Hello My Dearest,

I want you to read this letter very carefully and i must apologize for bringing this massage to your email without any formal introduction due to the urgency confidential of this issue. I am happy to know you but Almighty Lord knows you better and know why he directed me to you at this point. To begin i saw your email and contact details on my search for a good next of kin online as a result of my urgency to put my last wish into reality before i die any time soon.

I am writing this mail to you with heavy tears In my eyes and great sorrow in my heart, My Name is Mrs Jessika Singh, I am contacting you from my country India I want to tell you this because I don't have any other option than to tell you as I was touched to open up to you, I married to Mr. Peter Singh who worked with Tunisia embassy in Madrid Spain for nine years before he died in the year 2005. We were married for eleven years without a child.

He died after a brief illness that lasted for only five days. Since his death I decided not to remarry, When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $10,850,000.00 ( ten million eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars ) in a bank here in India New Delhi the capital city of India New Delhi . Presently this money is still in the bank, he made this money available for exportation of Gold from Madrid Spain mining before his sudden death. recently My Doctor told me that I would not last for the period of 3 months due to cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke illness. Having known my condition I decided to hand you over this money to take care of the less-privileged people, you will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.

I want you to take 40 Percent of the total money for your personal use and for your effort and dedication towards the charity project work, While 60% of the money will go to the charity project work, people in need from the street and helping the orphanage too, i grew up as an orphan and i don't have any body as my family member. Also make sure that the house of God is maintained from the funds. Am doing this so that God will forgive my sins and accept my soul because these sicknesses have suffered me so much. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank here in Delhi India and I will also instruct the Bank Manager to issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of the money in the bank that is if you assure me that you will act accordingly as i Stated herein.

Hoping to receive your reply, then i will proceed with you to the bank for the money transfer to your bank account as soon as possible, that is if you are serious enough to handle the project and also dedicate your effort to it because i believe i can trust you honestly.

Yours faithfully.
From Mrs Jessika Singh

For those of you looking in, let me recount the many red flags that show the email in the above post is nothing more than a Phishing attempt.

  • Like me, my Bearish Friend above doesn't keep his money with LLoyds Bank. His vast fortune is kept safe in the many Vegemite jars buried in his back yard watched over by a vicious Drop Bear.
  • Read the email carefully. You will find grammar and spelling mistakes. I assure your that the Operations Director of LLoyds can afford the very best in secretaries. Or at the very least spell and grammar checkers for their computers.
  • LLoyds would never use email for a transaction of this size. Lets face it, nothing less than a registered letter would do.
  • And lastly, with 7.5 million dollars on the line, the Payee and his lawyer would have had all of the correct papers and bonafides. You don't honestly think LLoyds would hand over that much money on a say so. Now if the bank was Wells Fargo I would be worried. :lol:

LC, there are always gullible people who will ignore your pointers.

I posted once at Hengis's PCHF that the word "gullible" is not in any well known English dictionaries.

Two of the staff tried to prove me wrong one was @wolfeymole and the other wasa female moderator from West Oz who's name I have forgot. They quoted me with gullible from the dictionaries, and when I said they were gullible enough to prove me wrong they threw a fit, more so the West Oz one who complained to @DCiAdmin about me.

You cannot get this sort of info on facebook, that's why I post it here. The tree people do not join up and ask me to clarify any points so must be good stuff.

You will have good Karma, LC, for your wealth of knowledge you impart freely.

Good stuff indeed Mate. I've learned a lot from you. Now if I come down for a visit I know enough to buy a jar of Vegemite to dab behind my ears to protect myself from the drop bears. One day I might know enough to become a right proper Aussie. :lol:

Thanks Arctos. I'll take the good Karma but I would rather have a lovely Lass to tell me how good I am. ;)
