Dear Beloved, I send my love and greetings to you. I am Mrs Sarah Holmes from United Kingdom. I am married to Late Dr. Fredrick Holmes of blessed memory who was oil explorer in Kuwait and Brunei for ten years before he died in the year 2005. We were married for ten years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were committed to each other and respect each others interest. Since after his death, I too have been battling with both Cancer and fibroid problems, my doctor told me that I have few months to live due to my cancer problem that lead to a stroke attack. This bothers me so much as it have affected my speach and movement so badly. Having known my condition I decided to seek for your help. I am in search of a honest and sincere individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. When my late Husband was alive he Deposited the sum of $10Million (Ten Million United States Dollars) in a Security Company under my name, the money is deposited as Family Valuables/Treasure for security reasons. So if you are willing to take up this responsibility, you will have 20% of the US$10million to ensure that you are prepared for the task ahead, 75% of it will be used in all sincerity to fund orphanages, widows,research on cancer and also propagating the word of God and to ensure that the society upholds the views and beliefs of human existence, while 5% of the fund will be used for legal and attorney fees. I am taking this decision because the relatives of my husband have confiscated other of our wealth without giving any to the needy.Based on that I don't want to entrust this fund to any of them, and I have no child, I cannot take the fund to the grave. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in inappropriate manner. Since my health is retrogressing by all minute, so my dear please do get back to me and let me know if you are willing to carry out this work. Then I will make arrangement to prepare the Authorization through an Attorney for you to get Possession of this Fund. I pray that this letter bring you and your family good tiding while my dreams to help humanity rest squarely on your shoulders. Do remember me in your prayers because that is what I needed most for now. Remain Blessed, Mrs Sarah Holmes
