There are people who frown on my attempts to publish all iscams that find its way into my mailbox. But I can’t help to publish the really bad ones like this one, where the scammer haven’t bothered to keep track of the sender name. In the mail header it’s Hajia Maria, but in the signature it’s Hajia Mariam… Or is it a deliberate error made to further build the impression of a heard broken lady in distress? Naw…

My husband deposited $12.6million dollars with a security firm abroad whose name is witheld for now till we communicate. I will be happy if you can receive this funds and keep it safe I agree to compensate you with something tangible for your assistance.We can negotiate this figure when we commence communication.If this proposal satisfies you, please respond to me with the following information:
