Amina Abid is seriously ill...

The lads sent a 'dying widow'-letter. Bishop Jan Dorie is always glad to add another sheep to his flock of followers of St. Fladderack...


Mail 1: Opening gambit

(Most 'dying widow'-letters are from 'Christians' who as a rule have somehow forgotten about the eight commandment. This one's a Muslim. On the other hand, she's probably neither a she, nor a Christian or a Muslim anyway. As a rule I wouldn't think of converting anyone to any other kind of religion, but there's an exception for scammers. Let's see if she can be converted to the True Faith of St. Fladderack...)

Assalam U Alaikum,

I am AMINA ABID from Niger.I am married to Late Mallam AMINA ABID of blessed memory who is an oil explorer in Niger and Kuwait for twelve years before he died in the year2000.We were married for twelve years without a child.He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.Before his death we were both 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 $5.5million (Five Million, Five Hundred thousand U.S Dollars) with a Finance Company .

Recently,my doctor told me that I have only six months to live due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund toeither a Muslem organization or devoted Muslim individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instructs herein.

I want this Muslim organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund mosques, orphanages, widows, and also propagating the word of ALLAH and to ensure that the society upholdsthe views and belief of the Holy Quran. The Holy Quran emphasizes so much on ALLAH'S benevolence and this has encourage me to take the bold step.I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are new Christian's converts and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an Unholy manner.Hence the reasons for this bold decision. know that after death I will be with ALLAH the most beneficent and themost merciful.

I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, because of 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 on Email:

I shall give you the contact information of the Finance Company and the country in oversea where the money was deposited. I will also issue a letter of authority to the Finance Company authorizing them that the said fund Have being willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you. I want you and the Muslim community where you reside to always pray for me.

My happiness is that I lived a true devoted Muslims worthy of emulation. Whoever that wants to serve ALLAH must serve him in truth and in fairness. Please always be prayerful all through your life.Any delay in your reply will give room in sourcing for a Muslim organization or a devoted Muslim for this same purpose. Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders.May theAlmighty ALLAH continue to guide and protect you.
please reply on Email:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Re: Claim of my late relatives fund Value US$10million on Account #: 14-255-2004/STC123-99

I am the next of kin of the late Michael Post who died on 21st April 2000 and have the legal status to inherit his money. I recently discovered that my kin was maintaining an account/ deposit with your bank.

I would like to obtain more information on how to retrieve my late kin's funds.

Thanking you for expediting this matter.

'She' sent these two pictures, the originals show the obvious pixellation of the magazine they were scanned from. And this lad ought to be bloody well ashamed of himself...

Dear Amina Abid,

Thank you for your kind mail. I was really shocked to see your pictures. It is quite clear that you must be at the end of your tether. As a bishop I would appreciate that, at this crucial moment in your life, you would learn to the light of the teachings of St. Fladderack, a shining example of Christianity. You can learn more about St. Fladderack and our church at our website. Please repent before it's too late!

I would like to give you my phone number, but as you can read on our website the Church of St. Fladderack does not use telephones. However, you can reach me by e-mail and by ordinary mail of course.

I have sent the letter to the bank and I await their reply.

Yours in Christ,

Jan Dorie Fzn.

Dear Amina,

Thank you for letter. Praise the Lord you wish to be saved and Born Again! This is Good News! The creed of St. Fladderack is a bit difficult to explain through email. However, I am willing to send you St. Fladderack's book by ordinary mail if you wish. St. Fladderack lightens our hearts, his most holy life is an example and inspiration for all his followers. To live by his rules means (among others) giving to the poor, visiting the weekly church service, giving your heart to the Lord, and if at all feasible a pilgrimage to the church in order to see the shrine of the Holy Mackerel. Please give me your address and I will send you the book. In the mean time, please feel free to become a memeber of our church by filling in and returning the form attached.

I received word from the Standard Trust Company. Now there's a bit of problem. They ask for all kinds of documents. How do I get these? Can you help? Here's the letter they wrote:

Dear Sister in the Lord,

I am very grateful that you decided to join our faith. Be blessed in the name of St. Fladderack.

In a few days' time you will receive St. Fladderack's book. In it you will read, among many other things, the following: "When speaking with thy brethren, thou shalt look them in the eye, as is meet among the faithful. Thou mayest send word to thy brethren in writing, but better by far is it to converse with thy brethren, the faithful, face to face."

Based on this word of St. Fladderack my predecessor Bishop Jan Salie ordained in 1917 that the faithful of St. Fladderack were under no circumstance to use the telephone. After all, when speaking on the 'phone, you can't see who is on the other side. Jan Salie saw the telephone as an instrument of the devil's making. I would like you to forswear the use of the telephone. Fortunately, we can use this new-fangled e-mail and as far as we're concerned it works just as fine as an ordinary letter.

I do not quite understand about the lawyer's fee. Can the lawyer please contact me on my email address?

I pray for you, dear sister, and for your wellbeing, and may you find strength in the words of St. Fladderack.


Jan Dorie Fzn.
