The sender was "Mrs. Tale Hamlet"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
Please forgive me if my plea sounds a little strange or unbelievable to you. My family attorney who could have handled the process of executing my WILL & TESTAMENT on my behalf died early this year after a protracted illness. I therefore prayed fervently and by the special grace of GOD, I got your email ID from your country's guest book. I am Mrs. Tale Hamlet, a native of United Kingdom, I am 58 years old. I am suffering from protracted cancer of the lungs which has also affected part of my brain cells due to complications. From all indication, my condition has deteriorated and it is quite obvious according to my doctors that I may not live for the next couple of months, because my condition has gotten to a critical and life threatening stage.
I was orphaned at the age of four and was raised in an orphanage. I was married to my late husband Engineer. Steve Louis Hamlet for twenty Five years without a child. STEVE had cardiovascular condition and died of cardiac arrest few years ago. I am a fervent Believer and a God fearing woman just like my late husband. Steve and I lived in Nigeria for over 18 years, where my husband a petrochemical engineer by profession worked and rose through the ranks to become an executive director with a multinational construction and oil servicing conglomerate, before his demise. He also established huge private investments that I assisted in managing.
Sequel to the unfortunate and shocking demise of my priceless husband, I decided as a rule not to re-marry. when my cancer ailment became terminal & more so because I do not have a next of kin to bequeath all that STEVE & I labored for, I sold off all our choice properties and other inherited belongings comprising of a shopping mall, hotel, shares, bonds, jewelries and other valuable family treasures and deposited the proceeds amounting to US$16,000,000.00 (SIXTEEN MILLION DOLLARS ONLY) with Euro Finance. As I write, this fund is still deposited with the bank. The management of the bank just wrote me as the sole owner because of the unserviceable status of the fund and suggested to me in a 2 paragraph statement to issue a letter of authorization to someone who can manage the fund on my behalf because of my ill health and also threatened that the fund could be confiscated upon my failure to adhere to their Banking rules and regulations within a stipulated time frame.
I am presently at the intensive care unit of an India hospital, Dharamshila Hospital And Research Centre (DHRC) Based in India, Delhi NCR. It is the leading cancer treatment hospital in the world and I have been undergoing treatment there for late-stage terminal cancer of the lungs. I am computer literate and was fortunate enough to have my personal laptop with me, hence I am writing from my sick bed. I rarely talk; my doctors told me that I have only few months to live, unless there is a divine intervention. It is my last WISH therefore to see that 90% of this fund is invested in any charitable organization of your choice and administered as you may deem fit, especially to the orphanage homes and homes for destitute and the mentally retarded. you can also extend some part of the funds to churches and mosques and to those struck by natural disaster, if you wish.10% of the fund could also be expended on cost of administration of WILL & TESTAMENT and also on logistic support and o ther sundry arrangements
I crave your indulgence as a God fearing individual and as someone who cares for the less-privileged as much as I do, to take it upon yourself and use this fund for the above mentioned purposes, I took this painstaking decision in other to help humanity in my little capacity before i rest in peace in the bosom of GOD almighty. According to my physicians my time will soon be up.
As soon as I receive your reply and personal information as listed below, I shall give you the official contact of the Union Bank plc officials, to enable you contact the Bank without delays. I will also issue you with a letter of authorization, so that my bankers will recognize your status as the new beneficiary of the fund. The letter of authorization will further prove that you are the new beneficiary of my ESTATE, WILL & TESTAMENT. The funds have an open beneficiary mandate and as such, it is whom I authorize or appoint to act on my behalf that the bank will recognize and release the funds to. Please assure me that you will not treat this offer with levity but will rather give my bequest continued existence.
