Dear Beloved in Christ,
I am Mrs Erica Wright,suffering from cancerous ailment.I was married to
Mr.Robert Wright,my husband worked with Chevron/Texaco in the United
Kingdom for twenty years before he died in the year 2003.

My late husband deposited the sum of  17.5 Million (Seventeen Million
Five Hundred Thousand Pounds) with a Bank in United Kingdom.Recently,my
Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the stroke and
cancerous problems I am suffering from.

I have decided to donate this funds to you and want you to use my husbands
effort to fund the upkeep of widows and charities worldwide.I took this
decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and
my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not
want my husband hard earned money to be misused.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my private email adress.


With God all things are possible.

Your Sister in Christ,
Mrs. Erica Wright.
