A 65-year old Grace William from Netherland lost her children, and started feeling pitiful for others in Australia who lost their livelihood in fire. Now she has cancer and Doc says she only has a few months to live. Therefore, she is giving her US$20.5million to any potential scam (oops) victim who may like to help distribute 90% of it, while keeping 10% for themselves. She is so nice…
We believe that similar emails have been circulating around the internet with the same storyline. You will be asked to pay an advanced fees to process the money transfer, after which everything else, (including Grace and her US$20million) will disappear into thin air.
hmmm… she doesn’t look like she is from Netherlands in the picture below, and her hair is amazingly dark at age 65…

From Mrs. Grace William.
Dear Friend ,
Please use this money for the less privileged.
Greetings to you and your family in the name of God. In my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and painstaking efforts I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my last wishes. My name is Mrs. Grace William. I’m a 65 years old woman and from Nether land-Holland. I was a merchant and owned two businesses in Dubai. I was also married with two children. My husband and two children died in a car accident six years ago.
Before this happened, my business and concern for making money was all I live for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have been helping orphans orphanage/motherless homes. I have also donated some money for humanitarian needs in Sudan, South Africa, Cameroon, Brazil, Spain, Austria, Germany and some Asian countries.
Only recently I saw on television the colossal loss of properties and livelihood people in Canberra, Australia through fire. I was moving with great pity and compassion that I decided to make this contribution on assisting people over there, I kept US20.5 Million United States Dollars in a long-term deposit account in a Finance company in LONDON. Presently, I’m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for esophagi cancer at Netherland. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few months to live.
It is my last wish to see this money distributed to victims of the fire outbreak in Australia and other charity organization. I have enclosed for you the Current Photograph I took below because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and distribute it accordingly. Use your judgment to distribute the money and keep 10% of it to yourself. If you are willing to help, please reply as soon as possible. With your phone number. Once I receive your urgent reply, my attorney will assist you to have this fund clear from the security/finance company where this fund is deposited.
May the good God bless you? Send reply and all correspondences to my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Grace William
