I have received several of these emails, sometimes the subject is Dear Blessed One and sometimes Dear Belove one, the text is usually the same and the attached picture has always been the same (so far), although the name is sometimes different.
The text reads:
Dear Blessed One,
Urgent Assistance Needed!!!
Greetings to you blessed one!. As you read through my message, I do not want you to feel pity or sorry for me, for I believe someday,somehow,we will all surely die, this is about mine, and a last wish.
My name is Mrs Mrs Carthy Frank a Citizen of the united kingdom, I am a 53years old woman, I am diagnosed of Cancer of the Larynx and it is terminal, medical science can not do anything for me at this stage. I believe in miracles because I believe in GOD, however I prefer to pass on at this stage since I am bed ridden and in constant pain.
Before this happened, my business and concern for making money was all I lived for, I never really cared about other values in life. But since my present situation, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have been helping orphans in orphanage/motherless homes. I have once donated some money to orphans in war ravaged Eritrea,Somalia,Sudan and some East European Countries.
Having known my condition I decided to entrust my last funds I have deposited in Europe ( USD$ 8.5 MILLION) to either a philanthropic or devoted individual that will use his judgment to distribute the money to charity organizations and feel free to reimburse yourself when you have the money with a total of 30% for your assistance also for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations. I have left the hospital and presently at home, I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few months to live.
It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations,because I don't have any child and my relatives and friends has plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and distribute it amongst charity organizations. Since my health is retrogressing by the minute.
I will make arrangement to prepare the authorization through an Attorney for you to get possession of the Deposit. I will give you the name and contact of the Deposit company where the money is lodged,thereafter, so you can claim the funds,Contact me on this email address (-- removed --). Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to receive your response immediately. Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord., I pray that this letter bring you and your family good tidings. Looking forward to hearing from you soonest.

Reading the message tells me that English is not the native language of the sender and to be a citizen surely United Kingdom (capitalised) would be the way to write it?
Take no pity (as per the first paragraph) there is no Carthy Frank with millions stashed away looking for a stranger to distribute the wealth while keeping a good slice for themself, it is just playing to the natural greed that humans have, after all 30% is a LOT of money!
Personally I have reported the senders email address to the service provider concerned each time and then deleted the email. I suggest you do the same.
