- In the name of God, the father almighty the creator of the whole universe, in him there is everything, the most powerful, the most merciful, beneficent and the most gracious, I greet you in the name of God who have appointed you to me to help in carrying out his glorious work. I am writing this mail with pains but in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me to carry out this course, God almighty will bless and reward you in abundance. My intention of contacting you is to solicit your humble assistance for a project, which will be mutually beneficial. I am Mrs. Grace Lawson. I am married to Late Mr. David Lawson who is Canadian citizen; he was a gold miner in Ghana (Ashanti gold field) and Sierra Leone (Koidu district) for twelve years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for twelve years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Since his death I too have been battling with both Cancer and Stroke problems. When my late Husband was alive he made a huge deposit in millions of US dollars with a deposit and Finance Company (bank) in oversea (I will tell you the amount as we proceed). Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a devoted religious person, organization or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. Presently I am undergoing a medical treatment in one of the hospitals in United Kingdom. I want this organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund Motherless babies home orphanages, widows, and also propagating the word of God and to ensure that the society upholds the views and belief of God. I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives have been so harsh on me and they are into some radical Organizations and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner. Hence the reasons for this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with God the most beneficent and the most merciful. I don't need any telephone conversation in this regard, because of presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development. As soon as I receive your reply on email, I shall give you the contact information of the bank in oversea where the money was deposited.I will also issue a letter of authority to the Deposit Company authorizing them that the said fund have being willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you. That God who have assigned you to me on these project continue to guide and protect you, see you through in all your strives and human endeavors. My dreams will forever rest squarely on your Shoulders. Sincerely in Christ's love Mrs. Grace Lawson GOOD DAY
