Today I have received an email scam from a “long time friend”: johnsontaylor123 at

The interesting thing is that there is no link to click. I am just wondering, is he expecting us to email him? If this email classified as email money scam. Or is just a junk email that is wasting our time and the internet bandwidth? Anyway, folks just beware of all these scams around.

Dear friend,
My names are Johnson Taylor. I’m a 65 years old man. I am British living in Dubai (united Arab emirate). I’m a merchant and owned two businesses in Dubai. I’m married with two children. my wife and two children died in a car accident six years ago. Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I lived for. I never really cared about other values in life.

But since the loss of my family, i have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have been helping orphans in orphanage/ motherless homes. i have donated some money to orphans in Sudan, south Africa, Cameroon, brazil, Spain, Austria, Germany and some Asian countries.

Before I became ill, I kept some money, Sixty eight million, Nine hundred thousand dollars ($68.9 million) to be precise in a long term deposit account in a bank in the united kingdom. Presently, I’m in a hospital. my doctors told me i have Esophageal cancer that I have a few months to live. it is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations.

Because so much of my wealth has been plundered by relatives and friends since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit from the bank in the united kingdom and distribute it amongst charity organizations.

Use your judgment to distribute the money and keep 10% of it to yourself. Feel free to reimburse yourself when you have the money for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations.

I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time to come. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me with good heart.

May the good Lord bless you and your family,
I await your urgent response.
Johnson Taylor.
