Jennifer Wilson - 59yrs, rich woman on her death bed !!

As i logged in early this morning, checking emails from work, and after responding to all the important ones, i checked my yahoo emails to find the email below. I am stumped for words, i have received a bunch of invites from Nigeria, Zimbabwe and South Africa. But this was completely different.

From: "Mrs. Jennifer Wilson" (info_lt012@yahoo.com)

Subject: Greetings From Mrs. Jennifer Wilson

My name is Mrs. Jennifer Wilson I am a 59 years old dying woman who have decided to donate what I have to you/church.I was diagnosed for cancer for about 2 years ago,immediately after the death of my husband, who has left me everything he worked for.I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to the you for the good work of God, rather than allow my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. Please pray, that the good Lord forgive me my sins.I have asked God to forgive me and i believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be going in for an operation in less than one hour. I decided to WILL/donate the sum of $1,500,000 (One million five hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows. At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now due to the fact that my relatives are around me and my health status.I have adjusted my WILL and my lawyer is aware I have changed my will. You and he will arrange the transfer of the funds from my account to you.I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others. Contact my lawyer Barrister Tom Smith with this specified email- barristertoms@walla.com or barristersmithtom@walla.com and tell him that I have WILLED ($1,500,000.00) to you by quoting my personal reference number law/chamber/solicitors/je/ws/WILL/9834520012 and I have also notified him that I am WILLING that amount to you for a specific and good work.I know I dont know you but I have been directed to do this.Thanks and God bless.NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I don\'t want anything that will Jeopardize my last wish. And Also I will be contacting with you by email as I don\'t want my relation or anybody to know because they are always around me.

Even if you spend few minutes reading all the text in the email, you will realise that this a pathetic attempt, and not as great as the Nigeria or other scams i have seen before. But somehow, a lady dying from cancer, sending her email from the death bed to me, was simply too bad to ignore. I have the mind to persue this and see how the scam develops. But my better sense prevails, and i am blogging this for posterity. God bless the soul of Mr. Wilson, who willed the 1.5 million $ to his wife. You know what, i wonder if he got all that money from that runaway prince from Africa, you used to email me about a year or two ago.
