Growing up in a relatively big family, with a number of siblings, I'm sensitive to the idea of familial harmony. It's hard to get everyone on the same page. We see it every day with our three kids, trying to gain consensus on everything from food to games.
So, immediately when I get a note as I did from "Maya Parlow" or whatever her/his name really is, I take note. She/he has decided for some reason I'm the person she wants to help donate her money to charity, "rather than allow my relatives to use my hard earned funds inappropriately after my death."
I will not be responsible for breaking up the family of "Maya Parlow," no matter the professed noble goals. That said, I'm completely convinced there are no noble goals here, a fact buttressed by a simple internet search that found others complaining of a scam email from "Maya Parlow."
Just hit delete.
I'm off again for a couple days, so I apologize, but the Spam Report will be back on Monday.

My Greetings to you,
I have been touched to donate from what I have made from this World to charity through you for the good work of humanity, rather than allow my relatives to use my hard earned funds inappropriately after my death. Please email me, so I can tell you what you need to do and also give you more details about myself and what I intend to accomplish.
Ms. Maya Parlow
