Cancer with a Taurus Rising

I received an email the other day – well actually three one day, one another day, and more – that was very touching. It started with:

My Beloved,

I am drenched with tears while writing this short message to you. It was heart-breaking news to me few days ago when my doctor notified me on complications on my health condition which he officially made known to me. He further stressed that the complication I had in my human mechanism as a result of a secondary liver cancer which have destroyed all the organs in my body system.

Cancer is truly a terrible disease, but I see a lot of bull rising here. Sure enough…

In the view of the above, I am in quest to find a trustworthy and upright individual whom I will entrust the sum of $23.2 million USD and this has led me to you. The said fund was acquired by me after I sold my adopted father's company, who died as a result of political crisis which erupted among his most political associate and business clique.

Of course she needs my Surname, First name, Gender (She's got 23.2 million dollars for me and doesn't even know my gender?), Marital status, Address, City / Zip, Country, Date of birth, Salary / annual income, Occupation, Phone, and Fax.

Do you want to know what a real cybercrime is? A real cybercrime is letting someone who would fall for such a scam out on the internet unattended!
