Dear beloved in christ, I know that this letter may be a very big surprise to you and I believe that you will be honest to fulfil my final wish before I will die. I am Mrs. Sarah Williams from London, I am 58 years old,I am deaf and suffering from a long time cancer of the breast, which also affected my brain. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond the next two months, this is because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage. I was brought up in a motherless baby's home, and was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child. My husband and I are true Christians and both worked with the british embassy in Cote D'ivoire West Africa, but quite unfortunately, he died in a fatal motor accident.Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of $8.5million dollars in a trunk box which i delared as family valuable with a security firm in Abidjan the economic capital of Cote d'ivoire. Presently, this trunk box containing the money is still in their custody, and the management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward to receive the trunk box after keeping it for so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can not come over as a result of my illness, or they get it confiscated because of dumorage. Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment. 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 in any organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless baby's home where I come from. I want you to use it as a good humanitarian,also to fund churches, orphanages and widows around. I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because I have no further option. I hope you will help see my last wishes come true. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security firm. I will also issue you a letter of authority, which will prove that you are the new beneficiary of the trunk box. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hope to hear from you soonest. Awaiting for your quick reply. Your beloved Mrs. Sarah Williams
