Greetings to you I am Mrs Karen Franklin, I was married to Dr. Van Karen, who worked with National Iranian South oil company (NISOC) for twenty three years before he died in the year 2006, May be you must have heard about him in the oil firm. We were married for thirty-seven years without a child. He died during one of the war in Iran. He was held hostage and slain to death by protesting youths of the region. Before his death we were both devoted Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum USD$5,000,000.00 (Five Million U.S. Dollars) with Bank. Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over. Presently, I’m in the hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only less than (2) two months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested wisely and at the end of every year funds are distributed among charity organization. I want a reliable and honest person that will use this money to reach to the motherless and also less privileges, to reach to the Katrina Hurricane, the sick that has no body to take care of them, the poor and widows and to set up a Cancer research. If you are willing and honest enough to do my wishes, as soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the lawyer who will give you the documents/details of the transaction and guide you through the process. My Barrister will issue letter of authorization that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated therein. Please do all things possible to make my wish come through. Email Me On: (email@example.com) Hoping to hearing from you soon. Mrs Karen Franklin
