Spam as spam can.
Remember my post: https://barefacedmessiah.wordpress.com/2013/05/30/psychology-of-fraudulent-emails/
The idea behind spam is to lie as much as you can. This is a filter to find stupid people. The ones who answer are the ones you were looking for.
Ergo: To run a cult successfully you must lie. And the lies must be outrageous and obvious.
Here are two examples:
Dear beloved one,

Million Pounds only) for your personal use, While the rest of 60% of the

orphanages) hence i have just a limited time to live here on earth; one
thing you should know is that i wouldn’t like this money to be used in an
ungodly way; i want it to be used to execute what i have instructed herein.
I grew up as an Orphan and I don’t have anybody as my family member, i am
doing this just to endeavor that the house of God is maintained.
Get back to me immediately endeavor to carry-out this proposal as to enable
