This “lady” seeks to transfer US$1.8million to Christian organisation (aka Church) through strangers on the internet.
Common sense would say that if a rich man/woman has US$1.8million for the Church, he/she will simply write a check and send it directly to the Church. Why would they need to contact a stranger via email and request help to transfer the funds through you to the Church?
Have you ever seen a real story where a rich man walks on the street with US$1.8million in his bag, passed to a stranger and tell him, “Please take this bag full of money, and pass to the Church. Thanks!”. You might find this in a comedy, but not in real life.

Subject: Urgent Notification…
i am Mrs Linda Pare,from Kuwait.I am married to late Mr Desu Pare,who worked with Kuwait Embassy in Ivory Coast for Twenty-Six years before he died in the year 2001,after a brief illness that lasted for only five days.We were married for Eighteen years with a duaghter(Lilian)who later
died in a motor accident. Before the untimely death of my husband,we were both born again Christians. Since after his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of (US$1.8
M)(One Million,Eight hundred Thousand United States Dollar) in a General Trust Account with a prime bank in Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire. Presently,this money is still with the bank.Recently,Following my ill health,my Doctor
told me that I may not last for the next eight months due to my cancer problem.The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Christain organization (Church) that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct
herein,according to the desire of my late husband before his death.
I want this fund to be used in Christain Activities
like,Orphanages,Christain schools, and Churches for propagating the word of God and to endeavor 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 don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be
used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. 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 don’t need any telephone
communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always.I don’t want them to know about this development.With God all things are possible. As soon as I!receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank in Abidjan.
I will also issue you the documents that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund.I want you and the Church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy istian.Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth.Please always be prayerful all through your life.Contact me on this e-mail address:(firstname.lastname@example.org)
any delay in yourreply will give me room in sourcing another individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply. Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Linda Pare
