From: Mrs. Macus <email@example.com>Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.orgTo: some mailing listDate: Jul 19, 2005 11:48 AMSubject: I NEED YOUR RESPONSE Dearest in Christ.My name is Mrs Brigth Macus,a nationality of Tanzania. I got your contact from the British High commission office here, your esteem recomendation was given to me as a trust worthy person thus,I decided to write you this letter.I got married to late Mr.Bassey Macus who worked with Tanzania embassy in Cote d\'Ivoire for nine years before he died in the year Octorber 2003.We were married for twenty years with a child who is now in a bible school, I will want you to take my son (Saimon) as your own son and take a very good care of him as soon as the money is released to you by the bank.Before my husband\'s death we were both born again Christians. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $21 Million (Tweenty one million U.S. Dollars) "which he acquired from gold field he inherited from his late father" in an International Bank here for foreign establsiment project,but unfortunately he did not realise project before his death.Presently, this money is still with the International Bank. Recently my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to churches or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.I want a person or church that will use this fund to churches, orphanages, research centres and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I have and my late husband decided to use some of the money to work for God and my husband´s relatives are not Christians and I don´t want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don´t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision.I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going to. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not want any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because my late husband\'s family relatives are always around me and this could be dangerouse to me and my son\'s live if they know about the money. I don´t want any of my husband family relatives to recieve this money. With God all things are possible.As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank where the money is, so that they will tell you the procedures to transfer the money to your country. I want you and the churches to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I live a life of a worthy Christian.I shall also personally introduce you to the bank management as the rightful beneficiary to the money for transfer process in your name. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here. Expecting to hearing from you soonest. Remain blessed in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Mrs. Brigth Macus.

What do the follow-ups say? When do they get around to asking for the fees?
