Sounds like an opening into the Nigerian bank scam.

Edit: Just checked the link. Mail order bride, not the Nigerian scam. Mongo, why not take a 2nd wife?

I'm sorry I deleted them, but someone was trying to run the old "guess the stock" scam via spam. Basically, you pick, say, 1000 people. You email 500 of them saying X stock is going up. You mail the other 500 saying stock X is going down. If stock goes up, you mail the first group on the second day, predicting half up half down, and discard second group. Repeat until let's say 10 people have had correct guesses from you for 10 straight days and now think you are a genius and give you all their money. It's a cute idea, I wonder if it still works. (Is there an official name for this thing?)

Received last night. The Nigerian bank scam with a Christian spin:

Subject: Dear Beloved Lex
Date: Mon, 2 Oct 2006 23:40:06 -0300

Dear Lex,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, Having known the
truth; I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God
for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God’s mercy and
glory upon my life.

I know you will definitely take this as a deceptive email, because of
the swindle news we hear everyday and it seems to happen more often. Let me
first of all inform you, I got your email id from a mail directory and
decided to email you for a permission to go ahead.

I am Mrs.Victoria Water. from Nether land; I am married to Mr. Williams
Water, who worked with Mobile Company in LONDON for twenty years before
he died in the year 2003.We were married for twenty-nine years without a
child.

My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted or only four days. Before
his death we were both born again Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry 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 $4.5M. (Four Million and Five Hundred
Thousand U.S. Dollars) in a Bank in London.

Presently the money is still with the Bank and the management just
wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this
money or rather issue!

That somebody to receive it on my behalf if I cannot come over. I am
presently with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing
treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk
and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my
last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations any where
in the World.

Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since
my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge
responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand
and collect the Funds from the Bank.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund
churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to
ensure 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 hard earned money to be
misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in
an ungodly manner.

Hence the reasons for taking this bold 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 ease.

With God all things are possible.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
bank in LONDON.I will also issue you a letter of authority and certificate of
claim that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund. Please assure
me that you will act accordingly as I stated here.

I await your urgent reply.Please your response should be directed to
this VERY e-mail address: mrsvictoriawaterXXX@yahoo.com

Thank you and Bless You richly!

Yours in Christ,

Mrs.Victoria Water.
