I am Mrs Azman Binti Hashim from London United Kingdom. I am married to Dr.Frank Bin Hashim who 
worked with Shell Petroleum Development Yemen for ten years before he died in the year 2006.We were 
married for twenty-seven years without a child. He died during one of the rioting/kidnapping of 
foreign oil workers in Yemen. My late husband was kidnapped by the Militants, held hostage for 3 
weeks which after he was slain to death by Militants( Rebel Group) of the region and since his 
death I decided not to re-marry.

When my late husband was alive working with the Shell Petroleum Development Company Yemen, he was 
first retired and was paid by the company the sum of USD $ 5.5Million as grantuity and retirement 
allowance which he deposited the money with a security company in United States  as fixed deposit

Presently, this money is still with the security company in US and the management of the said 
security company sent me a notification of claim 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.

Currently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of 
the blood.  I have since lost my ability to talk well which made it difficult for me to
communicate via telephone and my doctor told me that I may have only a few months to live hence i 
contact you to ask for your assistance in receiving the said amount on my behalf.

I decided to do this because i don't have a child of my own that will inherit this money,my late 
husband relatives are after my life,the worst is my late husband relatives the fact that i did not 
bear any child for their brother collected, misuse and confisticate all properties left behind by 
my late husband.

This money that i am asking you to be a beneficiary to is the only thing which my late husband 
relatives does not know about and also the only thing i inherited from the families of Haafkens 
which i made a promise to God that i will use it for the propagation of his work,funding of 
widows homes and the less privilege.

Upon your acceptance to be a beneficiary to this fund it will be my last wish to see that 30% of 
this money ($1.6M) is used to bring up the 9 year-old boy whom I adopted after I lost my husband 
and then distribute 55% among charities organization, churches and the less privilege while 15% is 
for your assistance and help.

Note that I need a person that is God fearing that will use this money as stated above thus: 30% to 
take care of my adopted son, 55% for the funding of churches,orphanages, widows , for the 
propagation of  God work and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company in US where 
the money is deposited and I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the 
new beneficiary of this fund.

Assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.
