Dear Friend, My name is Mrs Angela Stone,a widow of late Mr. Frank Stone,former owner of Petroleum and Gas company ,here in London .I am 68years old, suffering from long time cancer of the breast.From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious thatI may not live more than 4 months according to my doctors.This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.i dont want your pity but i need your trust. My late husband died early last year from heart attack, and during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death,I inherited all his business and wealth.The doctor has hinted me that I will not live for too long again,so I have now decided to spread all my wealth,to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America, Asia and Europe.I am sorry if you are embarrased by my mail. I found your e-mail address as a real Child of God for over a month now that i have been praying to know if really you are working according to the direction of God.And after all my fasting and prayer i am convinced,and i have decided to contact you,but if for any reason you find this mail offensive,you can ignore it and please accept my appology.Before my late husband died he was a major oil tycoon,in Benin and deposited the sum of10million dollars (Ten million dollars) in a Security company,some years ago,thats all i have left now,i need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charity. So that when i die my soul can rest in peace.the funds will be entirely in your hands and management.i hope God gives you the wisdom to touch very many lives,and that is my main concern.20% of this money will be for your time and effort,while 80% goes to charity. God bless you. Mrs.Angela Stone.
