Dear Beloved Friend, Greetings in the name of our Lord JESUS CHRIST, I am former Alhaja Fatima Okeh,now Mrs. Felica Okeh a widow to late Alhaji Sheik Okeh, I am 51 years old and now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it s quite obvious that I may not live long according to my doctors, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. My late husband late Alhaji Sheik Okeh, was killed during the USA raid against terrorism in Afghanistan. My late husband was very wealthy, who made his money from the Afghanistan’s Government, and hence I inherited all his business and wealth after his death because during the period of our marriage we couldn’t produce any child. And now the doctor has advised me that I may not live for more that six months, so I now decide to divide this wealth in order to contribute to the development of the churches in Africa, America, Asia and Europe and for humanity in general. I selected you after visiting the website and I prayed over it, so I am willing to donate the sum of $10 million US Dollar to you on behalf of your organization to lend a hand in reaching out to the less privileged and the development of the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ, since I am very sick to handle this my dream on my own. I want you to know that this fund is in presently in Security Company in Switzerland, where my late husband deposited it. So and upon your reply I will instruct my attorney Barrister Michael Gill Holonis, who presently is in West Africa distributing relief materials to victims of bomb blast in Sierra-Leone, to file in an application of Withdrawal of the consignment to your favor. Presently I am writing this letter from a Hospital in London where I have been taken my treatment, which is why I handed over every thing concerning this Donation to my Attorney, since he has been my family Lawyer for 18 years now. Meanwhile to process the documents that will be used to withdrawn this consignment from the Security Company I will need some vita information about you or on behalf of your organization, so that I will forward it to my Attorney immediately, so please confirm this items as below: 1,your full name 2,your mailing address 3,your telephone and fax numbers. On receipt of this confirmed items I will forward it to my Attorney so that some necessary changes will be made on the documents to enable you have claim to the Consignment/Donation. Lastly, I honestly pray that this Donation when transferred to you, will be used for the said purpose and properly too, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity. Please note that until this Donation is delivered to you, I will strongly insist that this transaction most be keep a top secret. May the grace of our lord Jesus Christ, the love of GOD, and the fellowship of GOD be with you and your family as I wait your gentle and kind response to this mail.
