Dear Friend, I apologize if the content of this e-mail is against your moral belief. Nevertheless,i will advise you pay close attention to the information i am about to divulge to you with utmost confidentiality. You might probably think this is just another scam or scheme, but i assure you that you can only know the truth if you read carefully the content herein. My name is Angelina Carter presently in Europe for medical treatment. I was hospitalized and bed ridden after a ghastly auto accident involving my entire family on our way back from camping in Canne, South of France. Myself and husband survived with major injuries. But, he died one week after the accident as a result the injuries sustained in his brain. Moreso, the doctor has informed me that my health condition is getting worse. This is as a result of the head injuries i sustained from the accident which has affected my brain and caused a major damage to my spinal cord. I am told that i have a few months to live after a series of surgeries and tests had being conducted. Knowing this sad development, i have decided to dispose our estate and fund to a prudent and God fearing person; who will disburse the money wisely for the work of charity and other ventures as he deems fit. This decision is based on the fact that i am the only surviving person in my family, with no extended relatives to inherit these properties. I hate to think that the bank and security firm where we have these assets lodged will confiscate and declare it unserviceable after my death; Hence, my reason for this bold decision. Although, i am a stranger to you and for all you know i could be just another of those Internet con-artists. However, i will implore you to respond to this e-mail with a clear conscience and "opened-eye" every step of the way until these funds are successfully in your possession. All that you are required to do is assist in safe-keeping this fund valued at US $25.5 Million United States Dollars deposited in an Escrow account with a security consultancy firm in Madrid,Spain, before it gets confiscated or declared un-serviceable. Therefore, i seek your consent to present you as the Trustee/ForeignInvestor to my late husband, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. I have all the necessary information, guidelines and documents given to me by my husband before his death. Your honest and full co-operation is all that is required to enable us see this transaction through. But it is imminent I state to you clearly now that this transaction will be executed through normal banking proceedings. Although, i guarantee that this will be executed under a proper arrangement that will be sternly monitored by me every step of the way. I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality and discreetness in this matter until the task is accomplished, as i do not want anything that will Jeopardize this transaction. I know i have never met you in person, but my intuition tells me to do this, and I hope you act sincerely. Note that, 30% of the total fund will be given to you and family upon the successful release of this fund, And the rest should be used in charitable work because I am now too weak and fragile to do things myself. Please, include your full name, resident address and phone numbers when responding to this e-mail. My best regards to your family, Angelina Carter
