Parsley and Thyme

Still getting richer

In continuance of my earlier post on spam, here is another that came in just now, with an even greater sense of urgency. And supposedly, this person called “Edward Cole” thinks that I can somehow help him dispose of his millions – legitimately. I am left wondering what would happen if I choose to communicate with this person(s). It is pretty unsettling for me to imagine that there would be people of such vulnerability in this world that these crooks can take advantage of. Incidentally, this man makes a huge mistake with his ‘ten million’, even literally – count the 9 zeros and you will know what I really mean šŸ™‚

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr.Edward Cole, I am from England Please take this serious, I
am taking this liberty anchored on strong desire to ask for your
assistance.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer,and right now I
have only few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be
one of the last good deeds I do on earth.With deposit of Ten Million
United States Dollars ($10,000,000,00) that I have with a Finance Vaulting
Unit in Europe.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity
organizations.Kindly note that 30% of this funds must go to the tsunami
victims 45% to other Charity Organization and 25% for your effort and
time.I cannot talk with you on the phone due to my health situation, as I
am using my Laptop Computer to communicate with you.

You should respond only if you are interested in carrying out this
assignment on my behalf.

Regards,
Edward Cole
