I am Mrs. Ross Van Freden.I was married to Mr.Polus Van Freden who was a farmer in Zimbabwe for twenty years before he died in the year 2005, may be you must have heard about the trouble Zimbabwean farmers had with Presided Robert Mugabe. My husband's farm was totally destroyed and after that he developed serious hearth problem and died. We were married for thirty-one years without a child. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $15,000,000,00 Million with a security company in Europe Presently, this money is still with the company 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 with my laptop in a 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 a few months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested, the proceed at the end of every year distributed among charity organization. I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I know that there are a lot of poor people suffering from different kind of disease and nobody to come to their aid. With God all things are possible. As soon as I hear from you, I will direct you to my personal adviser, he will properly guide you on how to proceed with things. May God bless you as I wait for your reply on this email: email@example.com Yours sincerely Mrs. Ross Van Freden
