My name is Mrs. Linda Fulginiti. I am a seventy eight year old woman who is currently living in South Africa. I immigrated here from the United States (When?) and spent most of my married life here with my late husband. (Who?) Ten years ago, immediately after my husband?s death, I was diagnosed with Kidney (Renal Cell) Cancer. Luckily he left everything in his name to me. I have decided to donate what I have inherited to you for charity purpose. I wish to support your cause for aiding the underprivileged and assisting the widows in the country The amount I am donating is a total of $5,7 million. I feel much more peace of mind donating money to support your cause than to donate the money to my relatives who will, more than likely use it in an ungodly manner. I would prefer to promote the good of mankind. I don?t know if I will win my battle with cancer. I am going for an operation tomorrow morning. At this point, it is uncertain whether I will survive the operation.. In the event that I don?t survive it, I would just like to wish you luck with the funds that I have deposited into your account. Unfortunately, I am unable to take calls at this point in time due to the current turn of events in my life as my health has declined and I am unable to have the privilege of privacy as my relatives are always around me. I would just like to confirm that my lawyer and I have adjusted my will and now everything I have will be left to you in the event of my death. When I am deceased, my lawyer will arrange to transfer the funds into your account. Please find my lawyers details below: Full name: Barrister Edmond Shaka Email;email@example.com Mr. Edmond Shaka has been instructed release a total of $5,7 million upon receiving an email from you with the reference number I have provided below: Law/chamber/pz/ud/ WILL/qa5786531/gasa/0056.

I guarantee that the whole process will run smoothly as Mr. Edmond Shaka has been making his services available to me for over 20 years. However, I would appreciate your confidentiality in the matter until the funds have been released into your account.
