Who is Mary Williams or Sister Mary Williams? Did you know that there are two different internet scams with these names? Below I will go into some detail about both internet scams.
Sister Mary Williams claims to be the widow of Late Usman Tanko. She also claims that she is 61 years old and very sick with cancer of the blood. She states that she needs help with getting her $16.5 million into the U.S. She states that she wants the money to go to charity, the less privileged and to the development of evangelism in the United States. Now, if someone has $16.5 million, and wants your help to get this money into the United States wouldn't that give you a RED Flag that something is not right. In the end there is no money and no Sister Mary Williams.
The other lady is a 27 year old that lives in Lagos Nigeria and is interested in dating young men. She writes emails to gentlemen and after a short time starts chatting on yahoo instant messenger. Once she has you feeling that you are in love with her, she invites you to come and visit her. The catch is you need to send her the $2000 for the airline ticket. Now, the red flag here is, why couldn't you buy your own airline ticket? Well, she comes up with a story of why you can not purchase the ticket yourself.
Both of these women are internet scams. Everyday there are people being scammed all over the world. You will never find out who these people really are because they use fake names and free email accounts.
When you are contacted by someone who is seeking your help with a large amount of money, I would highly recommend doing some investigating to make sure that it is legitimate so you are not being set up for a scam.
