These Still Exist?

I wish spammers would try something new.  Are people still falling for these scams? I wouldn't believe it just based on the terrible Grammar alone.



Greetings; I am Mr.  Prince Michael Bale. 49 years old Man, suffering from long time esophageal cancer. According to my doctor my condition is critical and I might not survive.

Presently, I'm in a hospital here in Europe where I have been undergoing treatment, I believe that I will not die, but I will live to declare the glory of God.

Before I became ill, I kept $8.5 Million in a long-term deposit account in a(FINANCE FIRM).
[note: this person didn't even bother to insert a name of a finance firm where they were supposed to]

I was an industrialist and international businessman. I have prayed concerning this donation for God guidance. Please if in your heart you genuinely and faithfully desire to use this fund for the propagation of God work in any form whether for charity, ministry evangelical work, building a Clinic, school, orphanage, library and drilling of water for the orphans, local community, widows, Old Aged, and people living with HIV AIDS who can not afford to pay for health, school and foodstuff or otherwise in relation to make people happy, do get in touch with me on how you will receive my Charity donation.

[oh, so now scammers aren't even enticing us with money, they're trying to get us by tugging at our heart strings! LAME.]

It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations. I was married, with two children.
[what, no dog?] My wife and my two children died in a September 11, plane bomb blast that happen in USA 9 years ago. [funny how that plane never made the headlines] 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.

My obligation is to do the right thing; the rest is in God hands, one thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life. Psalms 27:4, 8-9.

Please I will advised you respond back to my private email address(

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Prince Michael Bale

Hope I've provided a good chuckle this morning!
