You Are The Chosen One FOr This noble Work Of Charity.
I sincerely apologize for not taking your permission before  contacting you while also asking you to pardon my poor English, as I am half  educated. It is rather unfortunate that I am writing this mail to you in deep tears while lying on a hospital bed due to chronic cancer of the lungs waiting for the time to pass unto eternal glory. My ordeal is quite complicated but I will appreciate it if you give a little time to hear me out.
First, I would like to start by introducing my self to you. I am Mrs. Gift Johnson from Cote Divoire,West Africa as stated above. I was born on the 7 th of April 1952 in a small village and grew up as a petty trader until I met my husband who was a Cocoa Trader. We
got married and lived happily together but had no children. This never bothered us as we were good Christians and never blamed God for that.
Three years ago, I lost my husband as a result of man inhumanity to his fellow man. His death was the beginning of my unfortunate ordeal.  I had to undergo a lot of ritual procedures based on tradition by his family members to find out if I had a hand in his death. Part of the ritual
was being forced to drink water from his dead body. It is a common thing that happens to African Women.
This was not all as all properties belonging to him in my possession was taking away from me and was made an outcast. I lived alone for 3 years as a widow with serious agony while praying to the Lord to take charge. Unknown to his family members, my late husband had a total sum of $7.5,000,000 USD (Seven Million five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which was left secretly in a Bank.

Since I have no close family to give it to as I am the only daughter of my parents who died long ago and do not intend to give it to the family of my late husband,as a result of the maltreatment they did on me,I thought it would be good to find someone reliable who could use the money to help the poor and needy hence my contacting you. I will appreciate if you utilize the funds properly as instructed.
Kindly get back to me as soon as possible so that I can provide you with the contact information of the bank because i do not really know when my call to eternity will be. May God bless you as you take up this opportunity to help the poor and the needy.
Mrs.Gift Johnson
