    Hi Folks
    I received this email and was just wondering how many people here get this type of spam?It's the strangest i believe I ever received.Guess if a person would answer, the person who sent it would want finincial info or something probaly.I copied it below:

    LETTER FROM: Mrs. ROSA LOPZE

    In lordship I am the above named person from Tunisia but now undergoing
    medical treatment. I was married to Dr.Roberts LOPZE who worked with We were
    both married for eleven years without children. He died after a brief
    illness that lasted for only four days. Before he death we were both
    Christians and since his death I decided not to re-marry. When my late
    husband was alive he deposited the sum of USD7, 600,000.00 (seven Million
    six Hundred Thousand dollars with a reliable
    Finance Company). Although is was deposited as a concernment with the
    security company but they did not know the content in side the box was
    money.

    I will send you details as soon as you indicate your interest.
    Recently,my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Six months
    due to my cancer illness. Having known my condition and believing the doctor
    I have decided to donate this fund to avoid total loss to church, Less
    privilege,or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this
    money the way ,I am going to instruct herein.I want interested church or
    individual that will receive and use this money to help churches,
    orphanages, widows and propagating the Gospel and to ensure that the house
    of God is maintained. Please do not fail to spread the funds across the
    globe as soon as you receive the
    money.

    The Bible made us to understand that it is more blessed to give
    than to receive. I took this decision because I don't have any child that
    will inherit this money and my husband relatives are fighting over the
    properties and I don't want my husband's hard earned
    money to be misused by their greedy attitude. 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 amnot afraid of death since I am a good Christian. 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 don't need any
    telephone communication in this regard because of my health, and because of
    the presence of my husband's
    relatives around me always.

    I don't want them to know about this development. With God all
    things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the
    contact information of the Finance Company and other details that will
    enable youclaim the funds. I will also issue you a letter of
    authority/Power of Attorney that will make you the beneficiary of this fund.
    I want you to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My
    happiness is that I lived 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. I sent you this mail under severe pains. Any delay in your reply will
    be detrimental. Please
    assure me that you will act accordingly.

    Hoping to hear from you immediately.

    Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
    Remain blessed
    Mrs. ROSA LOPZE

    Rosa lopez,
    Jennifer Lopez.

    Who cares, LOL !

    Never open ANY email. Especially when you don't recognize the person. Even thinking you MAY have met her online, or him.

    Emails can be very tricky (and even dangerous)....be careful, oki ? :)

    For Rita:

    Dear Rita,

    Please allow me a friendly remark:
    Do you run any tool with which you can have a view at emails on the server before you download them?
    Or any tool that might filter unwanted emails?
    I myself use MailWasher Pro (not free).
    But there are a lot of different tools, both free and not free, that might do such a thing.
    They all use some different kind of filtering.
    I definitely have not used all of them, but if you are interested: as always please feel free to ask questions. I'm sure there will always be someone who might be able to answer ;)

    Warm regards, Jan.
