I got the following SPAMâ„¢ email purporting to come from an Australian. Now I realise that educational standards differ, but perhaps the author of this missive might want to brush up on English usage.

Name: {STUPID FIRST-TIME SCAM SPAMMER}
Country of birth: Australia.
My private email: {SPAMMERA}gmail.com

Attn: Beloved,
Good morning,

Greetings in the name of humanity, I am Mrs. {STUPID FIRST-TIME SCAM SPAMMER}, a citizen of Australia but presently in Pretoria,South Africa.I was previously working for the federal government, I am 50 years old, I am now a new Christian/Born again but from all indication, my conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite depressing, i have been suffering from long time cancer of the Lungs, from obvious reasons,that I wont live more than 4 months, according to my doctors, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

My late husband died last five years ago, and during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth.

The doctors has advised me that I may not live for more than 4 months, so I now decided to give his wealth to contribute to the development of the church in Africa, America, Asia, and Europe.

I selected you after visiting the website and I prayed over it. I am willing to donate the sum of $3,000.000.00u.usd (Three million United States dollars) to the less privileged.

Please I want you to note that this fund is lying in a bank in South Africa. Once i hear from you,I will forward you the bank details and contact person in the bank,he is reliable.I will also furnish you with the user id and password for you access the funds online.

I honestly pray that this money when transferred to your account will be used for the said purpose, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without humility, all is vanity.

Please provide me with the following information so I can forward it to a church friend who used to work with the bank.He is a reliable and god fearing man.

So why, when SPAMmers send these letters, do they always say "cancer of the Lungs"? Any reasons why capitalising "lungs" makes it more forceful?
