I am Sister Pangu Jones(Widow), The daughter of Late Woo Lungy from Bangkok Thailand(Asia). I am 28years old, i got married to Craig Jones many years back, the formal Chief financial officer of New Zealand’s Oil & Gas Company Ltd 2006, we lived together in Bangkok Thailand(Asia) until he was killed early this year during the attack that took place in Bangkok Thailand between the RED SHIRT and BLACK SHIRT.
Dear it took me a lot of time to summon courage to email you from Bangkok Thailand(Asia), i am now a new christian convert,suffering from long time cancer problem, from all indications, my condition is serious and according to my late husband doctor it is quite obvious that i may not survive the sickness, you might know that we people of Thailand are not christians, as a new christian convert,i beleived God and i know that i will not die,i will leave to declare the glory of God, i am presently leaving alone in a Church in Bangkok Thailand(Asia), Our Lord Jesus Christ has been my comforter all this while.
Before the death of my husband,he told me on his sick bed that he deposited some money with the COMMERCE INTERNATIONAL MERCHANT BANKERS (CIMB THAI BANK) BANGKOK THAILAND BRANCH, the sum of Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (Usd$7.5M). After disclosing this secret to me, he gave me the Documents he used in Depositing the funds called Certificate of Deposit, he never wanted to tell me about it until the moment that he was about to die, he told me that his reason for telling me about this funds secretly is because after his death that he knows his family in New Zealand will not allow me to inherit any of his wealth or property.
He told me that New Zealand Government will not allow me to make this claim since i am not legally married to him, my late husband told me that i can only get the fund claimed through the help of a foreigner like you that will stand as his business partner,and that was exactly what happened, I made up my mind to travel abroad, leave the rest of my life and continue to do the work of God as a missionary, when i returned back to Bangkok Thailand, I called my late husband lawyer to find out if the funds is still in contact in that bank, to my greatest surprise it was still in contact.
Presently,all the Documents concerning the FUND are with me, now that my sickness has gone to this stage,I am scared and I want the funds to be used for the work of God all over the world,i have prayed and told God to direct me to an honest person who will receive this funds and utilise it together with me and for things that will glorify the name of God, after my prayers, I decided to contacted you alone my beloved one.
Please I will appreciate that you send the following information to enable my late Husband Lawyer commence with the procuring of the necessary document that will back you up as his business partner and next of kin to my late Husband for immediate arrangement with the COMMERCE INTERNATIONAL MERCHANT BANKERS (CIMB THAI BANK)BANGKOK THAILAND BRANCH on how the Funds Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (Usd$7.5M) will be claimed by you on my Late Husbands Behalf as his business partner and Next of Kin and New Beneficiary.
