Permit me to inform you of my desire to introduce to you into this humanitarians work. I decided to do this after praying over the situation. You should please consider the transaction on its content and not the fact that you have not known me before. I need not dwell on how I came by your contact information because there are many such possibilities these days.I would like to introduce myself as Mrs. Esther Baraba,of Republic of Benin,widow to Late Dr. Thomas Baraba (formal Consular of the Benin Embassy in Madrid, Spain. I have been recently diagnose of Cancer of the Pelvics. I am writing to you now from my sick bed here in the hospital.
There is $8.5M (Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand united state dollars) my husband has in an account with the GUARANTY TRUST BANK BENIN of which I am the next of kin. With my health condition and because my husband and I have no child,I decide to contact you so that I will pass the right of next of kin to you. You will apply to the bank and request for the transfering of the fund to your own bank account.
This is on the condition that you will take only 25% of the fund/money for yourself,5% for any expenses, while you will use the remaining 70% for the less privileges people in the society. This is in fulfillment of the last request of my late husband: that a substantial part of the fund be used to carter for the less privilege people, If this condition is acceptable to you, you should contact me immediately with your full names and contact information's so that i will have the trust to pass the right of next of kin to you. So as soon as i receive your full names with your full address i will proceed to send you all the documents covering the fund which you will send to the bank for the release of the fund to your account.
I cannot predict what will be my fate by the time the fund will be transferred into your account, but you should please ensure that the fund is used as i have described above.
I look forward to your immediate response.
Mrs. Esther Baraba. Please reply to this email: email@example.com
