By Peter Fredson
I must be the luckiest S.O.B. in the world! On one day I won three different lotteries, and got a magnificent offer from some little old lady who wants to share a fortune with me. I really didn’t do anything to win all those fabulous prizes, but who am I to dispute winnings with Lady Luck?
First I got this e-mail:

Still reeling from all this unexpected good fortune, I got a pathetic letter from some little old lady who is in desperate circumstances and only needs some caring person to give her a little help.
Dear Beloved One.
It is by the grace of God that I see today, as I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even
myself) but my business. Having known the truth; I had no choice than to do what is lawful and just in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God & His Mercies and glory upon my life.
I am Mrs. Rabi Aliu, the wife of Mr. Idris Aliu, I am a citizens of Tunisian. My husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Russia for twenty years before he died in the year 2004.We were married for ten years without a child.
My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home, When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of
7.5 Million Pounds (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds) with a Bank in Europe.
Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANT and if I, as the beneficiary of the funds, do not re-activate the account; the funds will be CONFISCATED or I rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf (note that you need to activate this
account) as I can not come over. Presently, I’m in a hospital in Russia where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer.
I havesince 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 anywhere in the World in helping human race.
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-in as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Bank.
I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money, and I am not afraid of death since I know where I am going to. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband’s relatives around me always. I don’t want them to know about this development.
I await your quick response to this mail as this is my last wish to see this funds transferred before my Death.
Your Beloved Sister,
Mrs. Rabi Aliu.
That sweet dear old lady really needs help! And if I could afford the postage I might reply to her letter. Surely some sympathetic soul can help out this wonderful loving person.
Meanwhile, I’m in a dilemma. How in the world am I ever going to spend all that money from all those lottery winnings? But, I’m sure many kind and generous people will help me out of that dilemma.
