Hello, I know this email will be a surprise to you especially since we have not met before. Firstly, I will like to introduce myself to you. My name is Linda Smith, a medical consultant with Alpha Hospitals. You can check our website at; www.alphahospitals.co.uk We have a patient here by name Mrs Zurina Sani Yunus from Iraq who is suffering from Pickwick Syndrome. She is 53years old. She was the accountant General for Iraq.This sickness has no known cure especially when it has affected the heart. Presently, this woman is dying from this sickness, and has requested that her family's wealth be used for charity work globally. Mrs Zurina Sani Yunus personally confided in me two days ago that her late husband deposited the sum of Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars(US$17,500,000.00) in a Property Security Establishment in South East of Asia. She confided in me that her husbandneposited this money without the knowledge of their family. And it was deposited as personal effects for security reasons but worth millions of dollars. Presently, she has pleaded with me to source for a trust worthy individual who can handle this charity programme on her behalf since she no longer have hope of living anymore. She said since non of her immediate family members are alive to inherit this fund, she has decided to use it for charity work. And she also made me to promise her that i will never contact any relative of mine to handle this issue either. So i am soliciting for your concern here. Mrs Zurina Sani Yunus has promised to give 25% to whomever i contact for this project. Then the other funds she said should be use for building a charity home and named after her which she gave as ZURINA CHARITY HOME FOR THE NEEDY. But i want you to know that the percentage of 25% given to you will be shared by the both of us . If you are interested in helping this generous woman achieve her vision of contributing to the needs of the less previlleged before she departs this world, please do provide me with your contact details so that i can relate to her on this development for further action. Waiting for your positive reply. Regards Linda Smith.
