-- Dear Beloved Please Patake In The Good Works Of Charity, As you read this email, don't feel sorry for me, but assist me in my last will / wish. I am Mrs. Jane Gyan, wife of Late Mr. Parker Gyan,both citizens of the United States of America. My husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Russia for twenty years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both dedicated Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home, which the Bible is strongly against.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of £557,000.00 GBP (Five Hundred And Fifty Seven Thousand Great British Pounds) a Financial House in Malaysia. Presently, this money is still with the Financial House and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary that our account is DORMANT and if I,the beneficiary of the funds, do not re-activate the account; the funds will be CONFISCATED or I rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf, as I cannot come over. Presently, I'm in an hospital in Russia where I have been undergoing treatment for oesophageal cancer. My doctors told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this funds distributed to charity organizations and NGOs anywhere in the World in helping human race.Because my relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness.I plead with you to help me stand as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Finance House. I want someone,who is God-fearing to use this money to fund churches, mosques, orphanages and widows and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not God fearing and I don't want my husband's hard earned funds to be misused by unbelievers. I await your quick response to this mail, as this is my last wish to see this funds transferred before my death. Please my beloved for further communication on how we are going to conclude this, reach me on my private mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Remain Blessed Jane Gyan
