Did you go to snopes? An e-mail is an e-mail, who cares where it came from? Snopes is disputing the content of the e-mail, the attack on Obama. Why can't you see that?

I was just channeling smd. Sorry for the confusion. BTW, I did paraphrase a wingnut former-coworker of mine - that's where the "true in a deeper sense" line came from - after I'd demolished one of his beliefs about Hurricane Katrina.

Snopes disputes all negative news about Obama. They are Democrats. They can't help it.

I got this one today...


Dearest in christ

I know that this mail will suprise you but i implore you to take a little of your time to go through it for the descision you take will go a long way in determine my future.

I Got your contact while on internet search for a trusted person that will assist on this project after praying and fasting which is also a promise that i made to my God and your address was the first to be found so i decieded to contact you at once to enlight this descision of mine. I am Mrs Stella , from Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa. I was married to Mr Rahim Jude from Kuwait who was the chief consular in their embassy in Cote D'Ivoire for nine years before he died in the year 2002. We were married for eleven years without a child.

Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or to get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $3.500,000 (three million five hundred thousand) with the Federal Reserve Vault here in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

Presently this money is still in the custody of the Federal reserve Vault. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer kidney problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to you so that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want you to use this fund for orphanages,widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that "Blessed is the hand that giveth". l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and I don't want my husband's efforts to be used by unbelievers.

I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.Exodus 14 VS 14 says that "the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace". I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Federal Reserve Vault. I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund if needed. I want you to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Contact me through this email address and any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another good person for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Upon your endeavour in retrieving this fund from the federal reserve vault, i shall personally give you a compensation of every expensis you might made during the retrieval as i will be travelling to London for the Cancer operation next week and will not be around, do not be afarid for i stick to my words because i am a woman of intergrity.

Hoping to receive your response immedaitely.
Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
l remain yours sister in Christ
Mrs S. Jude
