And my response:

Dear Aicha Abdullah,

It’s like you’re trying to tell me something, I just know it.

Your education must be deteriorating faster than I thought. Your English has gotten worse within just a few days. I would just like to point out that I never said I was willing to assist you and your children. It seems that all you’re worried about is this money and you didn’t even answer my questions about your late husband.

Let me ask you a few questions, just to keep it simple. How do you know that I am trustworthy? How do you know I won’t steal all your money and then never talk to you again?

Oh, and the word “scam” or “scams” means to lie to someone with the intention of taking their money or possessions. It’s slang for “a fraudulant business scheme”. I understand you’re not from Nigeria, but that doesn’t mean I can trust you.

Have you ever heard of Jesus Christ? If so, what have you heard?

    Dude, I cannot believe you actually have a correspondence going with a big spam hoax, this is too funny! It really shows us the human behind the scam…

    Yea, it’s really kinda sad that they just keep it up. It’ll be an interesting response this next time. I wonder if they even know English at all or if they are just writing form letters.

    Not to mention, the people who actually fall for this must be seriously oblivious to the world and the kinda crap people can pull.

    Yes, we almost sold our house to a friend of Ms. Abdullah…but the deal fell through after we inquired at the local marshalls, in the proponent’s country. DW can tell you more. Alas, we are 3 million dollars poorer than last week. Sigh…
