Current Status

This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Misc: Proof positive that 419ers are also Lottery Scammers

I received an ordinary looking advance fee fraud, and was about to post it to the 419 files when I noticed that the body of the message contained something about a lottery. On closer inspection (I don't actually read these things -- 419s and lottery scams are obvious just from the subject and first line, typically) I noted that the body was actually two message bodies: the first a lottery scam, the second a 419 scam. This particular spammer is playing both games, but got careless with his spamware configuration.

                           PLEASE USE IT FOR CHARITY WORK

Dear Sir /Madam,

I am Blessing Udimko a Sierra-Leone woman and wife of late Dr Clifford
Udimko from Sierra Leone. He was a diamond merchant who also worked with
Sierra-Leone Embassy in South Africa for Ten years before he died in the
year 2001. We were married for 12 years without children. He died after a
brief illness that lasted for only six days. Before his death, we were both
born again Christians and we lived happily.  I decided not to re-marry after
his death or get a child outside my matrimonial home because my Bible
forbids it.

When my late husband was alive he secured US$10.9M (Ten Million, Nine
Hundred United States Dollars) with financial institution in Europe.
The money is still with the financial institution up till now. I am
presently very ill of cancer and stroke. My Doctor recently told me that
from the entire test conducted, my health is deteriorating more than
expected and I have some few months to live on this earth.

Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to Churches or
Christian individual that will utilize this money in the following ways
(1) To fund Churches or Spread / propagate the work of God
(2) To help the Orphanages, Widows and the less privilege in the Society

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives. I took
this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money
and my husband relatives are not “born again Christians" or “God fearing
people”. I don’t want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by
unbelievers, for their own selfish interest and in an ungodly manner. I am
not afraid of death because I know where I am going after death. 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 want any telephone communication in this regard because of my
health and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me
sometimes”. I don't want them to know about this development, but I know
that with God all things are possible.
You can always reach me on my email:, for more

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contacts of my lawyer
in Europe, who will then give you the contact of the finance, house after
up-grading the documents as right of ownership in your name. He will also
give you all information regarding the deposit of this money. I will also
ask him to issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the
original- beneficiary of this fund. I want you and your church to always
pray for me because God work in mysterious ways. My happiness is that I have
lived a life of a worthy Christian. Who ever 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 herein.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Blessing Udimko.
