Another fraud from abroad

One of my email accounts has just received a communication from someone with a Yahoo.Japan email address:

This is Miss. Charlote Siegloff from Trinidad &Tobago. I am writing from the hospital in Cote D'Ivoire, therefore this mail is very urgent as you can see that I am dying in the hospital. I was told by the doctor that I was poisoned and has got my liver damaged and can only live for some months.

I inherited some money ($2.5 Million) from my late father and I cannot think of anybody trying to kill me apart from my step mother in order to inherit the money, she is an Ivorien by nationality. I want you to contact my servant with this informations below:

Mr. Mathins Henry.
Address: Rue De La Princess L/G 152 Cocody
Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire.

He will give you the documents of the money and will direct you to a well known lawyer that I have appointed to him, the lawyer will assist you to change the documents of the money to your name to enable the bank transfer the money to you. This is the favour I need when you have gotten the money :-

(1) Give 10% of the money to my servant Mathins Henry, as he has been there for me throught my illness and I have promised to support him in life. I want you to take him along with you to your country and esterblish him as your son.

(2) Give 10% of the money to Charity Organisations and Churches on my name so that my soul may rest in peace.

Note;This should be a code between you and Mathins in this transactioin "Hospital" any mail from him, the barrister he will direct you to, without this code "Hospital" is not from the barrister, Mathins, the bank or myself as I don't know what will happen to me in the next few hours.

(3) the lawyer's name is Mc Lambert Adams. And Let Mathins send you his National ID or his passport to be sure of whom you are dealing with. Mathins is so little therefore guide him. May God bless you and use you to accomplish my wish.

Pray for me always.
Thank you
Miss. Charlote Siegloff.

Surely, if anyone falls for this stuff, they have no one to blame but themselves. 

Hopefully, by now, our chums at Yahoo! will have received enough complaints to block both Charlotte’s Japanese email account and the address that people were invited to contact Mathins on.
