Reply to the Eich fund scam

Here is my replyto the email scam involving the lost account of Mr. Eich

Oh yes my good man!!

Thank God Mr. Eich was so kind as to place such a considerable sum into an account and graciously die... God rest his soul...

On a lighter note... I just recieved word from the Prince that the transaction went through!! I now own 5 billion dollars and would love to use a portion of this large fortune to help with your investment.

As to your investment in the economy of my country... I suggest investing quite a large amount in the production of gummy bears, on the grounds that americans are rather obese and consume thousands of gummy bears a year.

Further more, I believe it would be wise to invest in buckets... To be more specific, plastic buckets of all shapes and sizes in the colors of blue, red, magenta, green, a slightly lighter shade of green, and mauve.

In addition to the aformentioned investments, I implore you to, above all else, buy as many decorative aqurarium pebbles as humanly possible. For you see, when the fires of nuclear war rain down upon us, leaving the sky a sickly green and the Earth in ruin, these now worthless pebbles will become the most prevailent form of currency.

And now for the personal information you requested.

Name: Dr. Norman Cornelius
Age: 62
Occupation: Full time biomechanical engineer, part time celebrated hero of the people of Narnia
Adress: I cannot disclose my adress, simply because I live in a small hut in the Rocky Mountains.
Telephone:(***) ******* but I must inform you, that you may not physically speak to me over the phone. This is due to my horrid fear of trees, and seeing as my home is made of wood, I fear the boards will hear our conversation. You may text me though, because it is common knowledge that wooden boards cannot read.

Lastly, I assure you that there will be no betrayl on my part in these dealings. I wish only to help you as best I can in your endevors and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerly

Dr. Cornelius

Good day, My Beloved Friend. As I said early, I am Mrs. Fatimah Bader Mahamat from Australia, married to Late Engr Mr. Nasser Mahamat {PhD} who worked with MULTINATIONAL OIL COMPANY EXXON AS A DRILLING RIG SUPPLIER in Kuwait for 19 years he died on 31st  July 2000 on a plane crash with other passengers, We were married for twenty four years without a child. Before his death, he deposited the sum of {18.2000000.00 million Pounds} with a bank In Asia and this fund is presently with the bank awaiting my disbursement as beneficiary and next of kin to the funds. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer Problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Charity organization or good person that will use this fund to build an orphanage home which was the dream of my late husband. 
l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money. I kept this deposit secret till date; this is why I am taking this decision. I don't think I will need any telephone communication in this regard because of the confidentiality of this transfer. Upon your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank. I will also issue a letter of authorization to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and I want to assure you that will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do. Although we are knowing each other for the first time but I believe our Allah has directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because I saw your profile on Microsoft EMAIL owners list and picked you. Be assured you stand no risk as this is my money, I and my late husband labored for it and me as the next of kin has the sole power to donate the funds to whoever I want. I am a religion women and take delight only in the things of Allah and I have prayed a lot on this already and I believe so much in the manifestation of Allah that I know he will not fail me and I want you to know that you have to be strong in your faith as he {Allah} will surely strengthen you. My husband’s relatives will misuse this fund because they have sold my entire late husband’s wealth and property left behind. they have sold virtually all we have here in Australia, As I am here in the hospital they are around me they wait to hear that I am dead so that they lay their hands on my last belongings here on earth, But that does not bother me because things of the earth are canal, I do not want them to know about this deposit that is why I am communicating with you only on email and I am making communication with the finance firm also who understands my predicament. All I need is your absolute trust, commitment, confidentiality and honesty because I want to see my late husband’s vision fulfilled before I leave this sinful world. My spirit directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for someone to help me since I can no longer trust my family members and friends and I do not want this particular deposit to be used for things of the world. I will want you to get back to me that you will be absolutely honest about this transaction and you will use this money to the Glory of Allah. Also you have to assure me you will keep this transaction confidential and you will be willing to contact the finance firm which is located in Asia and finalize all necessary formalities as to the release of the fund to you. I will also want to know a little more about you regarding your life, your spiritual life what you do for a living so as for me to know you well. I require your urgent response, if you are trustworthy and willing to help me finalize this transactions that i will immediately write my chamber to prepare a court injunction/power of attorney making you beneficiary to my fund ,some copy of other documents are with the finance firm as I sent it to them for safe keeping so my family members will not lay their hands on it. To prepare this document I will require your full names and address. With this document you will contact the finance firm to arrange the transfer of the fund to you. As soon as you have received the fund then you will help me set up charity or distribute it to charity organizations and hospitals. I pray to be alive when you receive this fund and start this project so that you can visit me here if you wish to. i will be very happy if you can stand and fulfill this work of Allah wish you have been called  to do. Mrs. Fatimah Bader Mahamat
