Oh good, here's a nice, fresh "dying" scam. I hadn't seen it yet, so I'm assuming that someone made it up pretty recently. Notice all the usual spelling and grammar errors, but don't help them. Let them figure English out on their own.
First off, the real Mrs. Christy Walton isn't very much older than I am. Second, this ridiculous scammer doesn't know very much about how many of her family are behind her, waiting to claim her estate, left to her by her late husband. Notice how much the scammer emphasizes the word "charity." I suspect that unless it's in Christy's will, charity will get very little of it whenever she does die, which hopefully, will not be for a good long while yet.

Usually what these people say in these dying scams is that they were married for a long time and yet never had any children. This is a variation on that theme in which they claim that their only child died along with their spouse in some "accident" that really happened, which was reported in the media sometime in the past. They offer a link to that story in an attempt to show you that they are on the "up & up," as we say in America. In addition, this scammer identifies "herself" as "Mother Jennifer." I don't know much about the Catholic faith, but I'm pretty sure that all Catholic mothers, such as Mother Theresa, are nuns, and they are not permitted to marry or have children. Also, "Mother Jennifer" says she cannot "precisely say" why she has "chosen" you. She did not "choose" anyone, she simply spammed several hundred people. There are many more samples of these dying scams linked here, and a YouTube video is here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
You can be sure that whenever someone refers to you as "Dearest" or "Beloved," that they're supposedly dying. These scammers usually pretend to be women. They were always married for a long time, they're always widows, none of them ever had any children, and all of their late husbands were always rich, so now they are, too. What are the odds? LOL
Amanda isn't dying, she's lying, and "she" very likely isn't a woman at all. Out of all the scammers, in my opinion, these lying scammers who constantly invoke the name of God are the lowest forms of scum on the earth. I suspect that when they really do die, God will take one single glance at them and kick them straight where they belong. That they expect you to use nonexistent money to "help the poor" and "propagate peace" is even more maddening, as it only helps to convince the gullible until it is too late. There are plenty more of these samples located Here, and a video is Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
Here is another "dying, religious," lying scammer who supposedly has lung cancer which has spread to her brain, which has gotten to "a very bad stage." And yet "she" is able to type up this lengthy scam-mail. These scams are nearly always universally written from a female's point of view. They always say they were brought up in the most loving of surroundings, even if in abject poverty. They always say they were married for a long time. They always say their husband was rich, yet bore him no children, that they are now widowed, that they inherited their husband's "fortune," and now they're about to "die" with a pile of cash and no heirs to bequeath it to. The "lawyer" is always dead, too. They always want you to "come forward" to receive their "fortune" as a "next-of-kin" so that you can distribute it to worthy causes. They try very diligently to appeal to your emotions with a lot of religious Christian BS, but do not ever believe these lying dirtbags. They're not dying, they're lying. Because of the emotional appeal, in my opinion, this is one of the most dangerous 419 scams there is. There are a lot more of these "Dying Scam" samples on this page.

Oh jeez, here we go. This is one of those scams that just breaks your heart all to pieces, and they are vicious with many references to religion. Her "rich husband" died, they never had kids, and she told him before he passed away that she wouldn't remarry or become a mother, so that she has no heirs. How convenient. They also agreed that she would use his fortune to build an orphanage for thousands of orphaned children, help the less fortunate, and "spread the Gospel" to remote corners of the world. And now, of course, she is dying herself, won't last another five months due to cancer and stroke, and yet she is still able to type up this scam-mail despite her "terminal illness" LOL. She makes supposed "quotes" right out of the Bible, doesn't want her "fortune" to be used by "ungodly people," and "Blessed is the Hand that Giveth." Yada yada yada. "I want you and the church to pray for me because the Lord is my Shepherd, Your Sister in Christ," and so on and so forth. These "religious dying" scams in particular make me want to puke because they're never, ever true, and yet they manage to hook lots of people.

Greetings I am Lady Jessica Powell, suffering from cancerous ailment. I was married to Sir Richard Powell an Englishman who is now dead. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 20 Million British pounds with his bank here in UK. With God on your side, i want you to use the said funds for charity. Contact me as soon as you can through my email: firstname.lastname@example.org stay blessed. They like to make sure you're blessed a lot LOL.
First of all, "Maria" is not dying, she's lying. She doesn't have two nickels to rub together, and if she does, they were both stolen LOL. "Maria" very likely isn't a woman at all. Second, this was bulk mailed out to hundreds, maybe thousands of e-mail addresses. I guess "Maria" has $10.5M for each and every one of us LOL. These Dying Scams are pretty simple and straightforward. The scam always goes along the lines of "I got my money from my deceased rich husband. Now I'm dying and have no heirs because we never had children, so now I want to give it to you." Oh, and they always want you to donate part of the nonexistent money to orphans and childless widows.

"Muhammed Azeem" says he is 65, suffering and dying from cancer. He's in the hospital with a few months to live, undergoing treatment. He's also got $26 million to share with you. He says he cannot walk and is very weak, but Hallelujah! He can still type up this scam-mail ROFLMFAO.
He's not dying, he's lying. The ancient "dying" scam is yet another scourge that has survived the ages, only to make it onto the internet. To see lots more of these ridiculous scam samples, Click Here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.
"Mrs. Deborah Hutchinson" approaches us with a sob story. She's 65 and she's "dying." She says all kind things about us, even though she knows nothing about us whatsoever. She calls us "Beloved One," pretending that she's not spamming an undisclosed recipient list. She's a "rich widow, married 15 years, undergoing treatment in Africa," and she and her "late husband" never had a "child." For some odd reason, these scammers just never seem to have any heirs available. Now why could that ever possibly be? <sarcasm> LOL. Alas! She has cancer, and has had a stroke! Oh my! And yet she can still type up an eight paragraph scam-mail with correct spelling and grammar! ROFLMFAO! For more of these ridiculous scam samples, Click Here.
Another "next-of-kin." These are made up in a different variety of ways. Someone takes advantage of a true news story in the media where someone died, and supposedly left no heirs. If they can't find such a person, they can make something up out of the blue. The storyline is pretty much the same though. Someone rich died, left no heirs, they want you to stand in to collect the fortune, and they'll split it with you. It's a scam, of course. No matter what it is, no matter what they tell you, there's never any money, ever. Always remember that. More Next-of-Kin samples, Click Here. Some of them are "Dying" scams, too.
