Uh oh. Dear Ms Blessing Goodluck, you have a very fake name.

If you are faking to be communicating to anyone from Central Bank of Nigeria, quit using these shady emails.

In fact, if you were working for Central Bank of Nigeria, I am pretty sure their webmail access policies would be at least as anal as I've heard they have at Morgan Stanley. No webmail for you, if you need that spelled out.

If I was supposed to be paid $9 million USD by CBN, I think you would have honestly called me.

Dear Blessing Goodluck, you have just managed to provide me the least original Central Bank of Nigeria scam that I have read in years. Even in 1990 no one would have fell for it.

My Dear Friend
May Almighty God be with you, and how are you doing?. My intention of contacting you is to solicit your assistance for a project, which will be mutually beneficial. Though I know my decision to contact you is to a large extent unconventional, the prevailing circumstances necessitated my action. I am Mrs. Florence Henshaw from Seychelles. I am married to late Johnson Clarke Henshaw of blessed memory who was an oil explorer in Libya and Kuwait for twelve years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for twelve years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days before his death we were both devoted Christians. Since his death I too have been battling with both Cancer and fibroid problems. When my late Husband was alive he made a huge deposit in millions of US dollars with a Deposit Company in overseas. (I will tell you the amount as we proceed).
Recently, my doctor told me that I have only six months to live due to blood cancer problem. Though what disturbs me mostly is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either a Christian's organization or devoted individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want this Christian organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund churches, orphanages, widows, and also propagating the word of God and to ensure that the society upholds the views and belief of the Holy Bible.
The Holy Bible emphasizes so much on GOD benevolence and this has encouraged me to take the bold step. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are into some radical Organizations and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner. Hence the reasons for this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with Bosom of our Lord the most beneficent and the most merciful I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, because of 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 on Email: ( I shall give you the contact information of the Deposit Company in oversea where the money was deposited. I will also issue a letter of authority to the Deposit Company authorizing them that the said fund have being willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you. I want you and the Christian community where you reside to always pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a true devoted Christian worthy of emulation. Whoever that wants to serve God must serve him in truth and in fairness. I will not stipulate any precise amount to reward you, as it will have to be on pre-negotiated terms, based on your level of involvement.
Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give room in sourcing for a Christian organization or a devoted Christian for this same purpose. Until I hear from you by email, my drea,s will rest squarely on your Shoulders.
May the Almighty God continue to guide and protect you.
God Bless,

Mrs. Florence Henshaw

And that repeated 5 times in the same email.

If anyone had these millions of dollars, they would hopefully be smart enough to first, cure themselves in hospitals that can help them, and secondly, use a lawyer or someone to take care of their finances while they are alive and when they will not be any more. Seriously. What kind of millionaire, even if they had a famine starved brain, would go to internet to spam unknown people to give them millions of dollars?

Dear Mrs Henshaw or whatever you want to be called, if you indeed have millions of dollars that you don't want and need, I don't think you would be very smart spamming random people in the internet to help you. How do you know if random recipient of your emails care about your christian values? If you however exist and have these millions, how about drop a half a or a million of dollars for Joshua as he will need it when he grows up.
