OT: Does scamming get worse than this?

Sorry this post is waaay not related to original art, investments, or other comic book stuff. But oh man, this is the most endearing piece of spam that has showed up in my email's inbox in a long long time. I hate getting these (it's junk email and it's a fake request) and I cringe at the level these scammers are going to, but I know this is fraud and not legit. Fortunately most of the time, my filters catch them so I don't have to read them. :)


I am Mrs Joy Collins from London,I am 69 years old,i am deaf and suffering
from a long time cancer of the breast which also affected my brain,from
all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite
obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that i may not
live for the next two months,this is because the cancer stage has gotten
to a very bad stage. I was brought up from a motherless babies home was
married to my late husband for twenty years without a child ,died in a
fatal motor accident Before his death we were true Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry,I sold all my inherited
belongings and deposited all the sum of $12million dollars with a Security
Company.Presently, this money is still with them and the management just
wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for
keeping it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody
to receive it on my behalf since I can not come over because of my illness
or they get it confisticated.
Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing
treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk
and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any organisation
of your choice and distributed each year among the charity
organization,the poor and the motherless babies home where i come from.I
want you God fearing, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages
and widows,I took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time
will soon be up.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
Security Company.I will also issue you a letter of authority that will
prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me that you
will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hearing from you soon.
Waiting for your reply get back to me.
Yours in Christ
Mrs Joy Collins
