  Preying on fools

I don't really have much to say about this; except that even as an atheist I wouldn't sink this low:
Dear Beloved in Christ,

I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am formally Ahmed Usman from UAE.I was born into a devoted
Muslim family.All through my life i have been doing business and I
was into gold mining and selling.

I met our creator and the meciful one Almigthy God when i was having
a business deal with one of my partners from Italy and from the day I
became a born again christian my name changed to John Williams.
On 10th Feburary 2004 myself and my family and my business partner took a flight from kish to sharjah and we flew kish airline.We had a plane crash and all members of my family including my very good friend lost thier lives.I give thanks to God that I am one of the lucky ones that survived the crash.The airline was under the management of one Mr Shabab Attarzadeh who was later sacked after this incidence.I had to return to my base in London and I am now left with my relatives to take care of me.Owing to the fact that I was born into a Moslim home and my family members know that I am now a devoted Christian,they have neglected me and left me to suffer pain.I know I am not going to survive this whole pain anymore.what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness and now that I have developed paralyses from my waist region downward i am taking this bold step to let you know that I want to leave in your care the sum of $12.6M(Twelve Million Six Hundred Thousand Dollars) i deposited in a security company for the enhancement and propagation of the word of Almigthy God. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Church,or a Christian organisation or better still a Christianthat will utilize this funds the way I am going to instruct here in.

My main aim of doing this is for the propagation and upholding of the
message of God.My target area is the youth whom the future of any
great country largely lies on.In Asia,you find out that the
message of God has not yet really gotten there.The message of God
must not only be preached and upheld,but also our youths have to be
called back to the right path and thereby reawaken their consciousness.
I want you also to use this funds for the poor and the needy.Build old
peoples home and orphanages.For the fact that my relatives are not
ready to comply with me and they claim Islam is the way I am now
resting my dream in life on your shoulders.Even as you agree to help me carry out this duty i want you always remember that:

1. God won't ask what kind of car you drove, but will ask how many
people you drove who didn't have transportation.
2.God won't ask what your highest salary was, but will ask if you
compromised your character ormorals to obtain that salary.
3.God won't ask the square footage of your house, but will ask how
many people you welcomed into your home.
4.God won't ask about the fancy clothes you had in your closet, but
will ask how many of those clothes helped the needy.
5.God won't ask about your social status, but will ask what kind of
class you displayed.
6.God won't ask how many material possessions you had, but will ask
if they dictated your life.
7.God won't ask how much overtime you worked, but will ask if you
worked overtime for your family and loved ones.
8.God won't ask how many promotions you received, but will ask how
you promoted others.
9.God won't ask what your job title was, but will ask if you did your
job to the best of your ability.
10.God won't ask what you did to help yourself, but will ask what you
did to help others.
11.God won't ask how many friends you had, but will ask how many
people to whom youwere a true friend.
12.God won't ask what you did to protect your rights, but will ask
what you did to protect the rights of others.
13.God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived, but will ask how you
treated your neighbors.
14.God won't ask about the color of your skin, but will ask about the
content of your character.
15.God won't ask how many times your deeds matched your words, but
will ask how many times they didn't.

For the now I dont want any calls from you because of the presence of
my relatives that are always around me and I dont want them to know my
plans.Do get back at me to my private mail address John_williams@telkom.net
Hoping to hear from you soonest and do notify your interest to help me
to propagate Christianity.
May the peace and blessing of God be upon you.

May God bless you as you respond to my plea.
Best Regards,
Yours in Christ.
John Williams

It just plain disgusts me.

I hope no one responds to this, but someone probably will, and it is likely to be some well meaning person(s). Sure, stupid greed heads may think they are going to get over on Mr. John Williams, but most greedy people are probably too cunning for this; though, if it is the greedy, well, I can't think of anyone better to be fleeced - basically the whole philosophy of 'the con'.

No, this will probably appeal to some poor old lady who's grand-children got her an internet connection.

Anyway, I'm still operating out of the loop for a while, and likely to be out of the loop for at least another week. Basically, I just can't seem to get outraged right now. I mean, we/they are going to confirm a new u.s. attorney general who legally justified torture, and apparently...Hell, I mean, if the American people aren't already outraged, and the media - that which I've flipped through - is acting like apologists for the administration, just like they jumped on the WMD band wagon - well then my rants...well, it just doesn't seem to be worth me getting fired up. My country either is changing, or it never was, which may be the truth of it, what I thought it was. So, I'm more depressed and resigned than outraged. Better to come to grips with time as an apparent illusion, and reviewing old texts (actually an anthology by Aldous Huxley, The Perennial Philosophy) and trying to locate that mystical, and apparently difficult to find, TRUTH - for what it's worth.
