From: Mrs Rebecca Thatcher. No:36 Old Shrewbarry Street, London, England. Beloved, I am Mrs Rebecca Thatcher, suffering from cancerous ailment. I was married to Sir Jeremy Thatcher an English shipping tycoon notable for his great charitable activities before his death in April 2nd, 2006..When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Twenty Million Pounds Sterling (20,000,000.00 GBP) which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK and named me as the beneficiary of this trust fund.(All records are kept with my family lawyer).Presently, this money is still with the Bank. My Doctor told me recently, that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems that I have been suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition with the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen me, I have decided to donate this fund to you and I want you to use this gift which comes from my Late husbands effort to establish a charity home for the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans,destitute,thedown-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures, which is the reason I took this bold decision. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband relatives around me. Please email me through my personal address: firstname.lastname@example.org Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you soon. Remain Blessed, Mrs Rebecca Thatcher.
