There are times when commentary would just spoil the effect.

From: Mrs Suha Arafat (

Dear Beloved Friend,

This mail may not be surprising to you if you have been following current events in the international media with reference to the Middle East and Palestine in particular.

I am Mrs. Suha Arafat, the wife of Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian leader who died recently in Paris. Since his death and even prior to the announcement, I have been thrown intoa state of antagonism, confusion,humiliation, frustration and hopelessness by the present leadership ofthe Palestinian Liberation Organization and the new Prime Minister. I have even been subjected tophysical and psychological torture. As a widow that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with everybody in the country at the moment.

You must have heard over the media reports and the discovery of some fund in my husband secret bank account and companies and the allegations of some huge sums of money deposited by my husband in my name of which I have refuses to disclose or give up to the corrupt Palestine Government. In fact the total sum allegedly discovered by the Government so far is in the tune of about $8.5 Billion Dollars. And they are not relenting on their effort to make me poor for life. As you know, the Moslem community has no regards for women, more importantly when the woman is from a Christian background, hence my desire for a foreign assistance.

I have the sum of 25.5 million dollars with a financial security firm in Europe whose name I can not disclose for now for security reasons until we open up communication. I shall begrateful if you could receive this fund into your bank account for safe keeping and any Investment opportunity.

This arrangement will be known to you and I alone and all our correspondences hould be strictly on email alone because our government has tapped all my lines and are monitoring all my moves.

In view of the above, if you are willing to assist for our mutual benefits, we will have to negotiate on your Percentage share of the $25,500,000 that will be kept in your possession for a while and invested in your name for my trust pending when my Daughter, Zahwa, will come of age and take full responsibility of her Family Estate/inheritance.

Please note that thisis a golden opportunity that comes once in life time and more so, if you are honest, I am going to entrust more funds in your care as this is one of the legacy we keep for our children.

In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security and international media as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith. Please expedite action. Please, reply me with my alternative email address

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Suha Arafat.


"Mrs. Arafat" has used the following e-mail addresses, among many others:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[These addresses are probably all cancelled by now.]

The "Rogue of Sharon" is new to Scamorama, but no doubt there will be more.

It's highly unlikely that the so-called "Mrs. A." speaks Arabic. (The real Mrs. A. can probably function in French too - you could try it next time you run into each other while shopping on the Av. Montaigne.) It's similarly doubtful that "Dr. Cardle Ian" speaks Hebrew, Yiddish or any other language Ariel Sharon spoke when he was in speaking condition.

If anyone cares to make the Lads try, do tell! Salaam, Shalom, and Stay Safe Out There.
