Down With Disease

I have to admire these phishing scammers for their continued creativity; I just received this e-mail:

“Dear Beloved,

I came across your contact via international personal research profile in
my earnest search for a trustworthy and honest person to handle my
business and I apologize if the content hereunder are contrary to  your
moral ethics, but I had to reach you through this medium.

As you read this, I do not want you to feel sorry for me; because,I
believe everyone will die someday. my name is Mr. Ramin Tadius a merchant
in Tunis – Tunisia. I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

It has defied all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only
about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly live my life so well, as I never really cared for
anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was
never generous; I was always hostile to people and only focused on my
business as that was the only thing I cared for.

But now I regret all this as I now know that  there is more to life than
just wanting to have or make all the  money in  the world. I believe when
God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a
different way from how I have lived it.

Now that I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my
immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends.

I want Our creator to be merciful to me and also accept my soul,hence,I
have decided to give alms to charity organizations and less privilledged
Homes accross the world, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I
do on earth.

I want to believe that you will be capable of handling this
task for me.


Thank you
Ramin Tadius

The question I ask myself is this: If you sat a million phishers at a million typewrites for a million years, how many times would my mother forward me their e-mails?
