Wilson Duke Version: “West African advanced fee” or “419” Email Scam

This is another version of the Nigerian email scam, now being sent out by “Wilson Duke.”

Read more about the history of this scam.

Dear Friend.

As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I
believe everyone will die someday.

My name is Wilson duke, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been
diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late, due to
my laxity in carrying for my health. It has defiled all forms of
medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live,
according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared
for anyone not even myself but my business. Though I am very rich, I was
never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus on my
business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all
this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have
or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second
chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from
how I have lived it.

Now that God ! has called me, I have willed and given most of my
properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as
well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept
my soul and so, I have decided to give arms to charity organizations and
give succour and confort to the less priviledged in our societies, as I
want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.

So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the
U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so
badly, I cannot do this my self anymore. I once asked members of my
family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have
there to charity organization and to the less priviledged in Bulgaria
and Pakistan, and Africa they refused and kept the money to themselves.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of
twenty four million dollars that I have with a Security Company in
Europe for safe keeping. I will want you to help me collect this deposit
and disburse it to some charity organizations and to the less
priviledged.

Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this
disbursement.

I have set aside 10% for you for your time and patience.

You can e-mail me at: wilsonduke11@netscape.net

While I await to hear from you, may God be with you and your entire family.

Remain blessed.

Wilson duke.
