Dear Friend,

I am Elizabeth Edward, You should  have no cause to worry about this important message to you hence 
I am doing this because of the position i suddenly find myself.  
 As i write  this mail, I have serious tears of sorrow in my heart because i have done almost 
everything to keep only my self happy without looking into investing on charity work or Kingdom 
service. I was moved to take this bold step after my official divorce with John Edward former 
United States presidential Candidate after 32 years of marriage. I will not like to go deep into 
other reasons for this separation and divorce ,  after all you must have heard he had an 
extramarital affair with his mistress Rielle Hunter and also fathered a child.

Besides, the more reason of writing you is mainly on a very important issue which bothers me most. 
It is the issue of my recent health status, after being diagnosed of breast cancer in 2004, I was 
told that  the active and malignant disease Cancer which is expected to run its course spread its 
tentacles all over my body including my legs, spine and skull, i was told that i have only 6 months 
to live. 
I have decided to  donate my inheritance from my infidel husband John Edward to you for charity 
work or for kingdom service.  It is my decision to will my fortune to someone I did not know for 
reasons I will explain later, it is true that I have lots of people I know better to whom I should 
have willed my fortune here. I will need your co operation as quick as possible  as  i will be 
moving to the intensive care unit  in a private hospital for life support treatment and this will 
make me incapable of completing a charity dream which i started last month. I will be receiving 
palliative care and will need your prayer always . I am opportune to I have  this message send to 
you today through the  internet  facility here . I have all the believe that I am communicating 
with someone who is  capable of helping me  and  is reliable and will understand my reasons for my 
action. As the day passes each day I give my entire existence a thought, I feel over-powered by 
gloom and despair and saw nothing but death lurking a

More so, if this inheritance is willed to people I know instead of a stranger, I have fear that my 
husband or children will engage the beneficiary in litigation (court case) although we have 
officially separated but because of his status, he may do things out of greed, and he may use their 
connections and influence to reclaim or recover the money, a thing I hate to imagine! I have for 
the above reason cleared all hurdles and the funds are deposited for safety where no one except the 
financial consultant who has no link with my separated family. I have instructed the consultant I 
employed to surrender all document and   have  a limited power of attorney in your names  so that  
funds can be managed by you and you are to work with him till the funds are deposited to you for 
the charity project. This requires immediate action from you to avoid to any person diverting the 

 I’ve   made all arrangement to see that you are legally protected and all you owe me now is to 
keep all information very confidential. I have instructed the consultant on what to do to make sure 
that you are protected and the funds are released to you for the project. All you should do is to 
contact him and send all your information to him to enable him transfer the depositors name to your 
name for immediate access to the charity funds. I am aware of some miscellaneous expenses that may 
come up including communication cost and other minor cost that may come up before the funds are in 
your account and for setting up the charity project, so I did not forget what will be your benefit 
for the time and your expertise as you are doing this because i am the one that choose it. I will 
be giving you 30% of the total money while 60% will be directed to the charity work.

Please, note that, because I do not want my husband, children or relatives to know about this 
arrangement as i believe they some people spying for them because we are separated, to know of the 
latest developments, coupled with my worsening health condition.
I shall not entertain phone calls and conversations. If you are sure that you will use the donated 
fund as I have advised here, all information about this donation to you should be confidential and 
you must agree with me that the condition you must accept this offer but not to let anyone know 
about it.

I  am instructing you to contact the consultant  who will help you arrange the release of the funds 
to you , i will be sending all document relevant to the deposit to him and will instruct him to 
work with you henceforth.
