Dearly Beloved. Greetings in the name of our Lord, I am Mrs. Victoria Balli, a nationality of the Switzerland , and I am presently hospitalized, due to my illness. I am 59 years old and I was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer for about two years now. I am a widow to Late Mr. Ronald Balli. You see, my husband owned an import/export company which operated in the UK , West Africa , Switzerland and in China , where we spent most of our lives and I have served the Lord all through my life. From all indications, my condition is serious and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe state and my doctor has told me this. My late husband was well to do and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. Presently my doctor told me that I may not live for more than six months, though I am not scared about this, I am not afraid of death, hence I will be in the bosom of the Lord forever, any time my God calls me home. So, I now decided to look for an organization or an individual who is God fearing, that will use the funds for charity organization, by contributing to the development of evangelism in the world, assisting motherless baby�s homes and poor churches all over the world. I selected you after searching the Internet for this purpose and prayed over it, for the fact that I always go to God in prayers in situation like this, because He is the Alpha and Omega. I am willing to donate half of my husband�s wealth to you for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you rather than allow my husbands relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. You may contact my lawyer, Mr. Johnson Cradland, with the specified address-: Barrister Johnson Cradland 9 Bedford Row London WC1R 4AZ E-Mail: email@example.com Make sure that you copy this correspondence to his email address above and tell him that I have asked you to reach him. Please, do not reply if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use, you will have a reasonable percentage of the total funds before investing the remainder of the funds for Gods works. Lastly, I want you and your church to keep praying for me regarding my health, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in ones life, is vanity upon vanity. Good luck in all your future endeavors and God bless you. Thanks, Mrs. Victoria Balli
