CRAVE YOUR INDULGENCE,

 Greetings to you in the most wonderful name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.His richest 
blessings shall be upon you forever.

 I am Mrs. Grace Edwards,I am 51 years old from Netherlands, I am deaf and suffering from a long 
time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my brain, from all indication my conditions is really 
deteriorating and it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that I 
live for the next two months, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

 I was brought up from a motherless babies home, was married to my late husband for twenty years 
without a child. My husband died in a fatal motor accident.Before his death we were true 
Christians. Since his death I decide did not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and 
deposited all the sum of $18.5million dollars with a reputable bank as a fixed deposit amount with 
interest and most of the interest has gone into my hospital bills. Presently, this money is still 
with them and the management just wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money 
for keeping it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my 
behalf since I can not come over because of my illness or they get it confisticated.

 Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been under going treatment for cancer of 
the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few 
months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any
 organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and 
the motherless babies home where I come from. I want you to be God fearing, to also use this money 
to fund churches,orphanages and widows.

 I took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time will soon be up. As soon as I receive 
your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority 
that will empower you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me that
 you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

 I shall wait at your prayerful reply.

 Yours in The Lord,

 Mrs. Grace Edwards.
