Are you receiving Christian SCAM e-mail from Nigeria? : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

I have recently received several e-mails from individuals requesting to place funds in my account from a Nigerian based business. I know that this is a scam, however, now I've received a letter from a "dying woman" in Nigeria who is claiming to be a newly born again Christian. She is asking me to contact a lawyer so that he can "process" an application to donate a rather LARGE amount of money to our CHURCH for evangelism. Is anyone else receiving mail like this and if so, do you think they are getting our e-mail info. from this site?

Rev. Nicole, I get those every other day, the same one you got, plus they were moslem and converted christianiy, my favorite was the airline crash in the sudan and the plane was carrying lots of money they escaped the crash scooped up all the money and want to give me a portion if I send my account no. It is obvious they are getting our email addresses from this board. I do not get them on my personal email.

Thanks sis. Denise. I tell you, I can't believe the disrespect and fearlessness of individuals in using the Name of God for their own personal gain. We must beware, He is real & see's all.

I received this also. What people won't do. It's amazing.

I cannot begin to tell you how many of these e-mails I receive each month. If they were true, I would be in the billions by now.

I just received an offer for 2 million to my ministry. I almost beleived it at first until I looked into it. I found this question board on a search I did. Praise God for wisdom to not fall into snares. All this prosperity preaching I've been watching I thought I was getting my breakthrough.

By the hundreds on three different addresses. Each one is appealing to the greed and corruption in the individual. Some one has taken money from someone else and they want to do "good" with it. I wonder how many of our people have been taken in by this?
