Dearly Beloved
It is by the grace of the Lord that I send you this letter, having known the truth; I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of The Lord for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of Gods mercy and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs Victoria Wolfgang the wife of Mr Piter Wolfgang, my husband worked with Royal Dutch Shell Plc in The Netherlands for over a decade before he died on 5th of July in the year 2003 we were married for Fifteen years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only Five days. Before his death we were both born again Christians.
Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US $8.5M. (eight Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Security Company in Europe Presently, this money is still with the Security Company and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.
Presently, I'm in a hospital in Amsterdam- Netherlands where I have been undergoing treatment for oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations any where in the World. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds from
the Security Company.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. In return, I am offering you 20% of the total sum ($8.5M), while extra 5% shall be set aside for all expenses incurred by you during the process of claim. It is said 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 husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold 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. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband'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 Attorney who is in United Kingdom as he will be the one to assist you in laying claims for these funds. Please contact me through my confidential email address for the safety of this transaction;

Yours Ever.
Mrs Victoria Wolfgang
