Dearly Beloved,

I had to contact you after praying over my situation. I have been  recently diagnosed of complicated case of Cancer of the Breast and  Diabetes which has affected my hearing and to an extent my speech.

I am Rose Kone (Mrs), 58, widow to Mr. Edward Kone, former Defense  attaché to Benin Embassy in Greece. My husband was murdered alongside  with our only son Elvis by those who are envious of his position in  the same office.Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for  the down trodden, orphanages and the less privileged in the society.  Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an  individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize these  money US$28.300,000.00 M dollars the way I am going to instruct here in. I want  an individual that will use this fund and provide succor to poor and  indigent persons, orphanages, and widows and for the propagating  peace.

I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit  this money and my husband relatives are not inclined to helping poor  persons and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused  or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do  not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly  manner, incase any thing happens to me tomorrow as well.What I  required of you is your honesty, trust and sincerity. Any delay in  your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for  this same purpose.

May God Almighty bless you
Rose Kone (Mrs)
