I like these emails because I respond and play along! It is so funny getting these "people" all worked up thinking they get to feed their family this month. Let them starve! Just play along and mess with them! I set up a fake email account and email them all the time asking stupid questions, needing more info, I even onve tried to get them to meet me in real life!! lol...Play their game against them!

I just received this, but with a different email, PATHETIC!!

Just received an email

Just received an email regarding Mrs. Mary Parker. The email was actually sent by

I guess Ms. Miller is a scam artist

This is what happens if you actually answer the email....

I answered the original email from Rita Gilbert, because it only required giving her my email address. This is what I got in response, and I'm tempted to take it another step further considering I would just be giving her info anyone could look up if they wanted to. Now that I know its a scam, I'm not holding out any hope, but it would be interesting to see where the scam leads...

Dear Beloved

Blessings to you beloved. Your words in your response have given me great Joy this is a good work of charity project I have placed in your hands. My dear I will only say to you with reason of my throat cancer I am unable to speak but all I want is that the money is first safe in your account before I meet the Lord so that it can be used for the intended purpose.

I have told you in confidence that I want the project to be kept very secret and details of my contact with you should not be disclosed to anybody and this is because my husband's family might want to do everything to gain possession of this money for their own selfish interest.

My dear the bank in possession of the money is in Europe, the money can be transferred to your account electronically once you activate the DORMANT ACCOUNT and I need the following details below to send LETTER OF AUTHORIZATION to the bank in Europe that you are now the sole beneficiary
see below:







I want you to know now that if the project does not take place it will be your fault as I have done all in my power to see that everything works in the manner that we have discussed.

My dear, I want you to have faith and pray always knowing the task ahead and the bold step I have taken to give you this money, I need you to always stay focused and follow instructions, there is need for prayers as obstacles will arise but all that stand against the success of this transfer and the project proper will fall.

Let me rest and leave you to pray and build your mind towards the task ahead and also always be in contact with me. It is very important that you complete this project in good faith even if I join my husband before time and always know your share of the funds is 20% and the balance must be used for the project proper which is 80% dispatching it to the list of the charity organisation that i'll be sending to you.

May God bless you.
Your sister in the lord

Mrs.Rita Gilbert.

our friend rita

i recieved her email today the same as you but i decided to look up sam and rita gilbert i came up with this page so i wrote her an email with this link and told her i was not a stupid person

Rita Gilbert

I have just received the same email from Rita Gilbert as you did. I was about to reply but something told me to do some research about this person before I gave out any information about myself. I was pretty amazed at how many people has received this email. I found out if you continue to email this person, they would request that you send in some money. If only we could catch the person who is sending this email. But I would think that there was a catch in this email, it is when she mentioned not to tell anyone about her and that you were the only person she is communicating with. This is about the six site that I have come to that speaks about Rita Gilbert.

I also received the Mary Parker Email and I searched the net for information as I had a strong feeling this was a scam.

Beware as only in a bluemoon does someone come along that is really true.

Mrs. Mary Parker.

I've also got the email from scamster Parker, only she's Russian, or her husband worked for chevron in Russia.

How dumb do they think we are?!?!?

Mary Parker

I have got an email but from a different address -

Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the truth;I had
no choice than to do what is lawful and just in the sight of God for eternal
life and in the sight of man for witness of God & His Mercies and glory upon
my life.

I am Mrs. Mary Parker, the wife of Mr. Robert Parker, my husband worked with
the Chevron/Texaco in United Kingdom for twenty years before he died in the
year 2003. We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died
after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we both
got born-again and dedicated Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-
marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is strongly

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of £17.5 Million
(Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds) with a Bank in United
Kingdom. Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just
wrote me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANTand if I, as the
beneficiary of the funds, do not re-activate the account; the funds will be
CONFISCATED or I rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive
it on my behalf (note that you need to activate this account) as I can not
come over.

Presently, I'm in a hospital in the UK where I have been undergoing treatment
for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors
have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see
this money distributed to charity organizations anywhere in the World.

Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my
illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility
to any of them. Please, Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand-
in as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person
that is God-fearing who will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and
widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took
this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and
my husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's 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 since I know where I am going to.

I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. {Exodus14 VS14} says
that the lord willfight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any
telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and
presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know
about this development.Awaiting your urgent reply via my email

With God all things are possible.
Your Sister in Christ,

Mrs. Mary Parker
