I precisely contacted you as 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.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Ј5.7 Million ( Five Million Seven Hundred Thousand only ) EQV. ($10.6 million USD) which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in London United Kingdom. Presently, this money is still with the Bank and since my Doctor secretly gave report that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from but 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 efforts to fund the Church, upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially. I have contacted of the bank international payment unit officer and he assured making the payments to you as soon as he received your information's in three payment mode, (1) Swift Payment by ATM Card (2) Payment by certified bank check/draft (3)Swift Payment by bank to bank transfer. Quickly get back to me with your personal detail informations to enable me release a letter of Authority to the bank on your name that will empower you to stand as the original beneficiary of this fund; and I would like you to open a new bank account on your name and next of kin to be as orphans and I will give you the name of the Relief Centers for you to establish in your city as "Mannis Foundation Centers". I wish and pray to hear from you to enable me instruct the bank to contact you base on the payment mode you preferred best to receive the donated fund entrusted to you.
