Gerald Allens' "Doctors Note" - Nigerian Scam

Here is an email from a "Doctor" (that would never send an email) in the UK (where they have free health care by the way) asking for money (and is not in the billing department). Typical Nigerian scammer email

Dear Madam,
I am writing this mail on behalf of a patient of mine Mr.Gerald Allen who told me you happen to be his wife and hence you are priviledged to this information.Your husband Mr.Gerald was involved in a ghasty car accident on friday in a taxi cab on his way to the airport from Benin to lagos,he was rushed to our clinic in a state of coma,he suffered multiple wounds,internal bleeding and an open wound fracture to his right femur.I and the team of doctors on duty were able to stabilise him and eventually get him out of coma.We had to do everything within our powers to save his life since he was a foreigner and had to go against the hospital policy of treating him even without having someone to stand in for him or having someone to pay for the treatment.Well the next phase of his treatment is to perform surgery for his fractured femur and madam,am sorry to say that we can no longer continue any further treatment on Mr.Gerald unless some deposits are made and the amount for the surgical operation is 6000 euros.I hope that you now understand the situation on ground and perhaps act accordingly,do feel free to write back on any detail that is not clear to you and I will surely explain further on it,do take care and do have a wonderful day ahead,
yours sincerely,
Dr.Akinbola Olawole,(FWACS
