Just let everyone be aware that I had a private message this morning , asking me to see to a ladies dying wishes etc. I have reported this so please be aware.

I have copied the message and let H.U. know plus Eye and Emjay.

this is the p.m.

Dearest one,

I do sincerely apologize for my intrusion of your privacy here in health unlcocked, I have a serious concern with which I believe you might be of help and for this reason, I cannot but reach out to someone. My name is,

Mrs Mary Gets. A Nationality of Cape verde .

I am married to late Mr. David Gets , who worked with the United Nation Office in Iraq for 18 years before he was killed in a Car bomb accident along side with my two kids when they went there for a visit.

We were a dedicated Christians (Catholic) and decided to serve mankind to the best of our ability. Since his death, I have lived with ! the memories, fighting effortlessly to live a normal life but all to no avail.

I suffered mentally and psychologically and shortly was diagnosed of Cancer. I lived with the scourge praying earnestly for divine intervention. Just 4 days ago, the doctor informed me that I have just about two weeks more to live. I was not shocked. I accepted the news in good fate.

My dear beloved, it is in this regard that I write to you, having sourced you after fervent prayers. Before my husband died, he deposited a sum of $8.3Million (Eight Million, Three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with a bank in benin.

I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. The bank has no single idea of what’s the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that I may direct. This is the situation. I will simply nominate you as the next o! f kin and have them release the deposit to you.

I have wholeheartedly decided to donate the entirety of this fund to any devoted believer or organization and to achieve this, I need an individual that will utilize this funds adherently for these purposes:

1: For the sick, less-privileged and destitute.

2: For the Widows and the motherless babies e.t.c.

3: orphanages, Research centers and widows propagating.

4. To adopt children and give them good future

These are the wishes of a dying woman. They are the desires of my heart, hence my decision as I do not have a child to take over my inheritance. Please, understand that I am not doing this because of fear of death as I am certain where my place already is.

When I receive your response, I will direct you at once to an attorney who shall assist you with the deposit portfolio transfer of ownership procedures.

I wish to state here that! my communication with you will seize once I have given you the attorney contact and of

course a letter of authority mandating the bank to entertain your claims of right of ownership.

All I need from you is Truthfulness, Honesty and Sincerity assuring me that you can in all honesty and obedience utilize the funds for the purpose with which it is meant.

In any a case, a quick response from you will be highly appreciated as I am already on a count-down and may not have ample time to finalize the procedures. Any delay in response may compel me to source for other measures or perhaps choose the alternative which I will not be happy to. Please, do not see this as a strange possibility or an unbelievable Opportunity to make wealth, rather see this as a rare chance to assist the less privileged in truth and in spirit with a substance.

Do not betray my confidence in you.please reply me on my personal email which marygetts1@yeah.net

I insist that you reply me via this address.

I await your immediate response.

Thank You and Bless You richly!

Mrs Mary Gets

Y'know some people must think we were all born yesterday. The yeah.net kind of gives it away, yeah right :D

Thank you for pointing it out though Jilly, this has already upset somone over on the thyroid bit of Health Unlocked, I saw it in the newsfeed this morning.


Just think this is about as low as it gets really.I actually do firmly believe that there are people out there (the elderly &vulnerable) who would reply to this upsetting email.Just beyond belief that anyone would do this.Odd thing sort of is that I'm going to Cape Verde for a holiday in November.It's a very 3rd world set of Islands off the coast of Africa, the nearest land is Somalia so maybe that explains a bit.


I totally agree with you I'm originally from south Africa and coming from a 3rd world country the sights you see are scary, but good people to write a letter like this when there are genuine people suffering really suffering it makes me so mad


Hi YSD, Thats thats weird you going there. Like you say some people just scavenge off the others.


That is all they are Jillygirl, scavengers !! they are the pits of human society !!


Also got it yesterday, I think these people that send these messages are sick, I pray nobody falls for it, hope every one has a no smoking day...... xxxxx


Too true miracle123, I dont know how they think these things up. very clever, but very nasty too.


Ugh! Unpleasant e mail apart, my brother went to Cape Verde a few years ago, said it was fabulous, enjoy your holiday. Funny non smoking thing.... I decided yesterday to try patches rather than my usual NRT thought it might calm me down a bit. My previous history with patches has been quite disastrous i.e. massive rashes, nasty smells, floating straight off my skin etc, but I thought ok they have changed over the years, give it a whirl. Yesterday morning, great, didn't use any other NRT at all and felt quite calm. Yesterday afternoon saw me puffing away on my inhalator thinking oh this was a mistake etc. etc. got home in the afternoon to discover that the patch had disappeared it had indeed floated off my skin again! But the moral of this for me was that I clearly didn't need the amount of NRT that I've been using, so time for a rethink....hee hee. Hope you are all ok. Have a happy Sunday.


Friezfriend, Just shows you your doing well with the nrts. I ended up with the inhalator but didnt replace the cartridge. seemed to work for me. Anything is better than smoking.


Thank you for sharing this email.

It left me with a sick feeling, Christianity really shouldn't tolerate this kind of thing and these people need tracking down and put away where they belong.


I also had this email and have been talking with the so called lady. They used a barristers name. David Ofosu-Dort. This is a real lawyer. I have contacted him, via another email address I found on-line. it wasn't until then I realised this was in fact a clever scam aimed at Christians and others with a giving nature. It is so very sick in nature, I'm still in shock! The real lawyer is alerting the cyber police in Africa. I've only just recently joined the Behcet's forum. Please can you warn others for me as this has left me very drained physically and emotionally. I've also talked with action fraud today. I pray these people be brought to justice. Bless you all
