From: Mr Badmus Lewis Attn, I am the above named person from Nambia. I am married to Mrs. Angel Lewis who worked with Nambia embassy in Kuwait for nine years before she died in the year 2008. We were married for eleven years without a child.She died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before her death we were both born again Christian. Since her death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late Wife was alive she deposited one trunck Box contaning the sum of $12,0000 Million (twelve Million U.S. Dollars) as a family valuable in one of the security company in SPAIN. Presently, this Box is till with the security company in SPAIN . Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is the high blood pressure sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual ,private organisation that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that“Blessed is the hand that giveth”. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my wife relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my wife’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that “the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace”. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my wife’s relatives around me always. I don’t want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company in SPAIN . I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.Contact me on the e_mail email@example.com for more informations, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or induvidual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated here in. Hoping to receive your reply. My private Email Address is firstname.lastname@example.org Remain blessed in the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mr.BADMUS LEWIS
