I recieved this today;
That was it! No long email (no email at all actually) no “bla bla geef me the monies” just quite simply, nothing! The email header looked like this;

So me being me, hoping it would turn into a bit of Thursday comedy gold, I sent a brilliantly worded reply back to them;
And low and behold, BAM right in the kisser;
Catarina Henderson <email@example.com>Good dayThis is my personal reference number law/chamber/solicitors/je/rs/
WILL/928473012 and My Name is Mrs Catarina Henderson. please send this to my attorney with the contact information below – he would provide all information to you.
Ooo sounds official :/
Due to my Sickness, i have been touched by God and want my WILL to be donated to you rather than allow my relatives to use my Late husband hard earned funds ungodly.
Ok, key parts here are this person is ill, they’ve mentioned god and they’ve implanted the idea of someone’s life savings being wasted in my head. An attempt to tug on the heart strings a bit and make any decent person feel a bit uncomfortable and sorry for this person.
My doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from as I will be going in for an operation later today. What bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the cancer.
Now they mention a few horrible things that everyone can relate to, again, a weak attempt to make you feel sorry for this person and make you empathise with them which starts to make them “real”.
With this hard reality that has befallen my family and me I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my Late husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down- trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.
LOL – why dont you try and fit in a few more things in there – there are so many “key phrases” in that they are guaranteed to trigger a reaction in almost everybody. Its all obviously a fake, but if it was your second day using the internet and you saw all this….?
I am currently sending you this mail from my sick bed in the hospital, I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my Late husbands relatives around me. I do not want them to know about this development.
With God all things are possible. I believe in Charity and I believe your faith is guarantee for me to trust you. Contact on the Attorney Kennedy Email: (legalconsultantkennedy@live.
co.uk) I sold my Inherited All belongings and deposited the sum of All $ 5.2 million dollars with A Security Company. I am diagnosed of cancer and have a time limit to live on this planet.
Oh wow, if I had believed them up to this point, I’d have just peed a little bit. Wham bam, $5.2 million bucks in the bag…. And no ask for bank details, or anything else you normally get in these kind of situations… This is an interesting development, they seem to be spreading the scam out a bit rather than just hitting me straight with the obvious stuff. How exciting 🙂
As for how I got your email, it was gotten after a proper search via your area zip code with the help of the lord leading me. At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now and my Doctor knows i have changed my Will.Lord will Bless you Abundantly as you extend the good works to others and Ensure to use a greater portion of the funds for its purpose in fulfillment of my last wish .. My contact on the Attorney Email – legalconsultantkennedy@live.
Defintly trying to get me to contact Attorney Kennedy here – who must be extermely professional with a @live.co.uk email address. Take note business owners, get your own domain! 🙂
Sincerely,Mrs Catarina Henderson
So, I sent them this;
I shall update this when they reply 🙂
One reply on “New 419 Scam – Jing.Kang@mris.com”
I wonder what happened next.
I wasn’t aware of this type of scam. It spammed me 5x just this day and different subject titles namely:
• We Picked you for charity-WORK, Interested? send reply… at 4:33 AM (went to Spam folder)
• We Picked you for charity-WORK, send reply… at 4:34 AM
• We Picked you for Project-WORK, send reply… at 4:37 AM
• We Picked you for Project-WORK!!, send reply… at 4:38 AM
• We Picked you for Project-!!, send reply… at 4:41 AM
all from firstname.lastname@example.org
and it annoyed me cause all of the messages were just blank. Since I just woke up at that time, I thought someone picked me to do something, so I replied just that person said, and that long message popped up. Made me feel that this one’s weird and looked who this person is by searching that Mrs. Catarina Henderson on google and it’s their new way of scamming.
Glad that there are people who posted it to be aware on this like you. 😉
