Subject: MY LAST WISH FOR CHARITY (URGENT REPLY)
I am Mrs. Johnson Edward, 78yrs old, I'm the wife of late Mr. Johnson Edward and I'm presently in London.
My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for just four days and we were married for 30 years without a child, and we are dedicated Christians.
When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of ($10.5M USD)
Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars to the a UK bank here in London.
Presently, this fund is still with the Bank and the management just informed me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANT and if I, as the beneficiary of the funds fails to re-activate the account, the funds will be CONFISTICATED or I rather Issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf as next of kin.
Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer and my doctor has just informed me that I have three months to live.
I have a dream to fulfill and I therefore ask for your help to receive this fund and fulfill my dream by using 50% of the total fund to reach out to the less privileged in the society.
I'll be gone in the next three months according to my doctor's report.
I'll be waiting for your reply via my e-mail, as I have no other means to communicate with the outside world except the internet. Please remember to include:
1) Your full Name............................
2) Your Private Telephone #............................
3) Your address............................
4) Your age & Marital status..............................
I’ll be waiting for your urgent response so that my attorney will contact you for the transfer of the fund as soon as possible.
God bless you.
Mrs. Johnson Edward.
