Good morning bloggers! A fan writes:

Jenny Brooks

Dear Sir/Madam
My name is Mrs. Jenny Brooks. I am a dying woman who has decided to donate what I have to you/ church. I am 59 years old and I was diagnosed for cancer for about 2 years ago, immediately after the death of my husband, who has left me everything he worked for.
I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to you for the good work of God, rather than allow my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God to forgive me and I believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be going in for an operation in less than one hour.
I decided to WILL/donate the sum of $2,500,000 (two million five hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows.
At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now due to the fact that my relatives are around me and my health status. I have adjusted my WILL and my lawyer is aware I have changed my will you and he will arrange the transfer of the funds from my account to you.
I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others. Contact my lawyer (Barrister Parker Brown) with this specified email: parkerbesq@netscape.net and tell him that I have WILLED ($2,500,000.00) to you and I have also notified him that I am WILLING that amount to you for a specific and good work. I know I don?t know you but I have been directed to do this. Thanks and God bless.
NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I don't want anything that will jeopardize my last wish. And Also I will be contacting with you by email as I don't want my relation or anybody to know because they are always around me.
Jenny Brooks (Mrs)

Thanks for the thumbs-up Jenny. Our people will be in tiouch with your people. And Pete Grasse has invited her to the YG bash tonight at Curious.

Seriously though, while there's nothing funny about cancer ( see our charity), there is something funny about scammers and even funnier,the people who get suckered.

This sort of post, we guess, while not even mildly annoying really ( it takes but one push of a button to delete, but we'll keep it up for a while ) is a sign that the blog is showing up on quite a few search engines now and....well in a funny way shows this thing is getting more and more traction. Numbers through here yesterday were just shy of 800. Numbers overnight last night, 119. Even on weekends we're getting at least 100 every day. It used to be more like 15 on a Saturday. Cheers.
