Dear Friend,

I know this letter will definitely come as a surprise to you but I hope as
you read on, you will come to understand I have decided- after about four
and a half month of thinking about the whole issue- to seek your help in
carrying out my last wishes. I don?t really know you but I have prayed,
thought about it and moreover I have no choice now and for another reason I
prefer not to disclose. My names are Mrs. Laurencia Grant.

I am 67 years old and I was born and brought up from a motherless baby's
home the Netherlands. I was married to my late husband for twenty years and
had two children but as God would have it. They died in an auto accident six
years ago.

Before this happened, my business and concern for making money was all I
lived for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the
loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families.
I have been helping orphans in orphanages/motherless baby?s homes,
especially in Africa. I have also donated some funds for humanitarian aid
and rehabilitation of prostitutes in Rio de janiero, Brazil, when I was
healthier. I know by now you might be wondering why this entire long story.
I am a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast,
all indication from my doctor that my conditions are really deteriorating
and it is quite obvious that i wouldn?t live more than three months.
According to my doctors, and in all indication regards to medical analysis,
this is because the cancer disease has gotten to a very bad stage that there
is no hope for me to be a living person again.

I have also lost my ability to talk, due to this my poor health condition.
Presently I been hospitalized and my only means of communication at the
moment is by my email or sms message and I am here with my laptop.

I am not afraid of death any longer though. Like I told you earlier, my
husbands business and mine really thrived when I was healthy and He been
alive. We really worked hard for the sake of our children. As my health
detracted, my extended family members swooped down on everything my husband
and I worked hard to earn.

Seeing that there are no offspring(s) to inherit it coupled with the fact
that I am dying. They never really liked me anyway but my husband stood by
me all those years. This is my plea; I made most of my money through
exporting vintage wines to African countries like South Africa, Benin
Republic and Nigeria.

I had to sell all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of
$7.5Million dollars with a security company. Presently, this money is still
kept with the security company and the managements just wrote me to come
forward to pick up my deposit, that it has over stayed the period of time I
entered that I would come over to claim it back. Or issue a letter of
authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I cannot come
over because my illness or they get it confiscated.

It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to 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 as a God
fearing person, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and
widows; I took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time will
soon be up.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security
Company. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as
the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me that you will act
accordingly as I stated herein.

Waiting for your reply.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs.Laurencia Grant
