     Dear Beloved, 
              Here writes Madam Felicia Hines, suffering from cancerous ailment. I am married to 
Engineer Silas Hines an Englishman who is dead. My husband was into private practice all his life 
before his death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without child. My 
husband died after a protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and 
the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who can not help themselves due to 
physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a child 
from this relationship, which never came. 
          When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 10 Million (Ten Million) Great 
Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market 
with his bank here in UK. Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me 
that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what 
bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the cancer. With this hard reality that 
has befallen my family, and me I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this 
gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, 
destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to 
be genuinely handicapped financially. 
          It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I do 
not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very 
wealthy persons and I do not want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused or invested into 
ill perceived ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly 
manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where 
I am going. I know that I am going to be with the Almighty when I eventually pass on. The Almighty 
will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not need any telephone communication in this 
regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband’s relatives 
around me. I do not want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. 
          As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank where the fund 
is deposited. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original 
beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please always be 
prayerful all through your life. Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. 
Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and members of your family. Reply to my mail through
