    Do you think the ends justifies the means?

    Should I take this poor widows money and build a nice Pagan community center where we will worship assorted deities other than Allah?

    I am very tempted. I am sure our deities would like more worship as much as Allah would.

    It would do her no harm since she is passing into the next incarnation, anyway.

    What do you think. Eagerly awaiting your response.

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Dear

    PRAISE ALLAH, THE MOST BENEVOLENT.

    I am Mrs Iyesa Ismiana,named person from Kuwait. I am
    married to Late Malam Usman Ismiana of blessed memory who worked
    with Kuwait embassy in Sudan for nine years before he died in the year
    2000.

    We were married for eleven years without a child. He
    died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his
    death we were both very devoted muslims.Since his death I too have been
    battling with both cancer and fibroid problems.When my late husband was
    alive he deposited the sum of$10.5 Million (Ten Million Five hundred
    thousand U.S. Dollars) with an oversea security company. Presently,
    this money is still with the Security Company.

    Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for
    the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me
    most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to
    donate this fund to either a moslem organisation or devoted muslim
    individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct
    here- in. I want this muslim organisation or individual to use this money in
    all sincererity to fund mosques, orphanages,widows and also propagating
    the word of ALLAH and to ensure that the society upholds the views and
    beliefs of the holy Quran.

    The holy Quran emphasized so much on ALLAH'S benevolence and this has
    encouraged me to take this bold step. I took this decision because I
    don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband
    relatives are new Christians converts and I don’t want my husband’s hard
    earned money to be misused by people I call unbelievers. I don’t want
    a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner.

    Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I know that after death
    I will be with ALLAH the most beneficient and the most merciful. I
    don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my
    health and also the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always.

    I don’t want them to know about this development. With ALLAH all
    things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you
    thecontact of the Security Company. I will also issue you a letter of
    authority that will prove you as the original-beneficiary of this fund. I
    want you and the Muslim community where you reside to always pray for me.

    My happiness is that I lived a life of a true devoted muslim worthy of
    emulation. Whoever that wants to serve the ALLAH must serve him in
    truth and in fairness. Please always be prayerful all through your
    life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a
    muslim organisation or a devoted muslim for this same purpose.

    Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders.

    May the almighty ALLAH continue to guide and protect you.
    IF ITS OK REPLY TO THIS E-MAILL ADDRESS yesma_1@hknetmail.com

    Regards,

    Iyesa Ismiana

    Let me guess, she needs the bank account number where you want the funds deposited. Sounds like she has relatives in Nigeria.

    I wonder what the embassy in Sudan or Kuwait would make of this. Hay, why not send them a copy and find out. But then again, why waste the time?

    Definitely the Nigerian scheme! Don't believe her SSanf, she is a crook.

    I am getting these emails all the time. Once I even played their game. I gave him a bank account and everything (a false one of course), and then this guy started not answering my emails and telling me that the secret police is all over him and stuff like that. It was hillarious to see that. I guess he wasn't too experienced in the scheme and he didn't know what to do next.

    But, I know a guy from here in Macedonia that went to Nigeria to "pick up the money", and he was kidnapped at the airport. The kidnappers then asked for $200,000 from his wife to release him. Scary!

    What! You mean she isn't sincere?? Gee! Well, I did kind of wonder that she was approaching a Pagan about this matter. (sigh) Well, that sure puts a damper on the Pagan community center, doesn't it?

    Seriously though, sometime I would like to build a lucrative site just to support a Pagan community center. We have a lot of special needs...nutritional, medical and educational. Many of us are vegetarians. We often prefer herbal and alternative medicine and we want childcare from folks who are at least informed about our religious paths. And, we need worship and socialization opportunities. I would really like to help fund a place where these needs can be met.

    Either that or win the lottery. Of course, I would have to buy a ticket.

    Use allah's money to fund your pagan temple, and pray that the woman re-incarnates as a pagan in her next lifetime and visits the temple to offer worship to allah.

    What I don't get is why she is limiting herself to only muslims, and then she's sending this message to a pagan/withch (sorry, I'm not sure what your religion members are called).

    You can call me a Wiccan. Or, you can call me a Pagan. Or, you can call me a witch. But, don't call me late for dinner!

    Heh, have you gotten the diamond offer yet? That was a new one for me, a nice change. Eighty-two diamonds from some widow in Ghana.

    ( EC makes mental note to never, ever, accept position as wealthy Nigerian politician, as they always get knocked off in their prime, leaving wealthy widows emailing strangers, to be taken advantage of )

    oh, my, that was the smallest potential disbursement I have ever seen from these [expletive deleted] people. I've personally never had less than about 40 million to split.

    It's not only diamonds, but just about anything that one could "overpay" for.

    While searching for good link partners, I came across this:
    http://www.fossilcars.com/scam_alert.html

    at one of the sites I visited.

    Now for the really weird part - When I graduated from college (a number of decades ago) I actually DID sell my car (an old Volvo) to a guy who shipped it off to Nigeria. Thankfully, he paid cash.

    Forget the Nigerian one or the Diamond one. I recommend the ebay affiliate one. They'll pay you $6.00 commission, get you all excited about the "free" money coming in.....then a couple of months later they sneak in and take the money back while you are not looking.

    Anyone else fall victim to this one besides me?

    Yeh, because they are not a Muslim. And neither are all those Nigerians who mention Jesus in their spam. Nobody who follows any religious code would send out spam. Majority of spam is clearly from athiests/agnostics and the like who believe they will not be accountable to anyone on the Day of Judgement.

    (And before there is a backclash I'm not saying ALL athiests send out spam, so please don't misinterpret my remark. Just saying the absence of belief in an all-judging diety makes it more likely you'll churn out spam promoting porn than somebody who'll believes he/she'll be punished for doing so in the next life. Hence the relative absence of spam promoting the Bible/Quran etc. even though they are the most widely bought/read books in the world v. junk promoting all forms of sexual perversions.]

    A lot of spammers caught have been devout religous, to the point of zealotry some. I've read their conversations...

    FWIW.

    It does look like a scam to me. One sign of that is the fact you are tempted to do something that you know is not quite right -- con artists prey upon our susceptibility to temptation. You were smart to hesitate before you jumped on this.
