The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent also the Diplomat inability to pay for Non Inspection Fees.

27 year old woman

From: Hannah Anderson

Dear Friend,

My name is Hannah Anderson; I am 27 years old, from London - England, where I am schooling and work as a fashion designer for part time job after my school. I am the only daughter of my parents my father died on a fatal auto accident on his way to see my sick mother at the hospital where she was admitted for Cancer treatment, she also died when she heard about the death of my father in same day at the hospital.

Before the death of my father, he had willed part of his Real Estate Business, Gas Stations and a total sum of £50,700,000.00 (Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling) to me. After the death of my both parents, things became hard for me, paying my school fees, putting food on the table and taking care of my other needs with my fashion designer work which I do as a part time work after my school, I went to the bank where my late father deposited the fund on my behalf to with-draw money in other to take care of my self and pay for my school fees with other bills.

I was shocked when the Bank Manager explained to me that I will not be able to with-draw from the deposited money, because my father had put a clause on the Will, which he used in depositing the fund with them, saying that before I will be given access to the money, I will either have to be
30 years old or if only I get married before the age of 30 , in which case, my husband will be legible to claim the money on my behalf by standing in as my late fathers next of kin to claim the deposited bank fund on my behalf.

Today I am only 27 years old. And I have no access to the money till I'm 30 years. So, I’m contacting you to stand as my husband to claim this fund on my behalf and in case if you are married already, you can still help me by standing in as my late father’s next of kin to the deposited fund. So, please get back to me as to know how you will be remunerated as I will part with 25% of the total sum £50,700,000.00 (Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling),while 10% will be mapped out for any expenses that we're to use to receive the money from the deposited Bank.

Please remember that I am writing you this email purely on the ground of trust so we can achieve this deal together. This transaction will last for two weeks after you get back to me on how serious you are to claim this fund on my behalf, please kindly get back to me through this email:

Would the Mega Millions Lottery Really Email Me?

Note from Blog Post Author:
It is important to note that no legitimate lottery would ever email the winner of the lottery. The lottery winner usually has to be the one to come forward to claim the lottery prize, otherwise it is forfeited. Lotteries are in no hurry to give away the prize cash. In fact, they would rather that no one claim the winning ticket.

Keep this in mind if you receive bogus emails claiming to be from the Mega Millions Lottery. It is most definitely a phishing scam.

Two Americans Win the Real $400 Mega Millions Jackpot

March 2014 - Two winning tickets for the sixth largest U.S. lottery prize were sold in Florida and Maryland. Florida sold its ticket at Sunoco on Merritt Island and Maryland sold its ticket at Lady's Liquor in La Plata.

The winning numbers were: 11 19 24 33 51 07

This one was the real lottery, and not a scam. Winners have 180 days to claim their winnings.

Mrs. Lilian Akre Phishing Scam

Women in Gambia

From Mrs. Lilian Akre,

My Dear,

My name is Mrs. Lilian Akre a nationality of Gambia I am married to late Mr.Wilson Akre who worked with Gambia embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the month October 2012.We were married for twenty years with a child. He died after the illness that lasted for long four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $4.5 Million (Four Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S.Dollars) at a good bank here in Côte d’Ivoire . Presently, this money is still with the bank.

Recently my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct him. I want a person o r church that will use this fund to churches, orphanages, research centers 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 gives. I took this decision because I have a child that will inherit this money but my son can not carry out this work only himself because of his age.

I and my late husband decide to use some of the money to work for God and live some for our son to have a better live. Our son is just 17 years old now and has grown up in Africa. He has low maturity and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want my family'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 reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going to. 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 peace."

I want your telephone communication in this regard because of my health condition my Doctor told me to avoid receiving telephone call and also because of the presence of my family relatives around me always .I don't want any of my husband family relatives to receive this money. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall inform you all the necessary requirement you have to send to me so that I can go to the bank to officially present you as the actual person that I have directed to handle and manage this money on behalf of my family and also give you the contact of the Finance bank so that you can go ahead and contact them.

I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I live a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here.

Expecting to hearing from you, Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. I am waiting for your response.

Remain Blessed

Mrs. Lilian Akre
