Dear Beloved, I am mrs Fatima Abacha, I am married to Late Ibrahim Mohammad Abacha of blessed memory who was an oil explorer in Kuwait for twelve years before he died in the year 2001. We were married for twelve years without a child.He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both devoted believers.Since his death I too have been battling with both Cancer and fibroid problems. When my late Husband was alive he deposited the sum of $8.5million (eight Million, Five Hundred thousand U.S Dollars) with a Security company. Recently,my doctor told me that I have only six months to live due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either charitable organization or devoted trust worthy individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instructs herein. I want this charitable organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund charitable homes, orphanages, preach the word of the almighty, and also propagating the word of ALMIGHTY the most merciful and most compassionate and to ensure that the society upholds the views and belief of the Holy book. The Holy book emphasizes so much on Almighty's benevolence and this has encourage me to take the bold step.I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are Full evils doers and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an Unholy manner. Hence the reasons for this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with ALMIGHTY the most beneficent and the most merciful. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. It will be of interest that you can kindly send your contact information which include your Telephone numbers , Occupation, Age, Sex,and Country so that i will add it in the letter i will send to the security company for the release of this money on your behalf. I don't want them to know about this development. With ALMIGHTY all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact information of the security company and where the money was deposited. I will also issue a letter of authority to the security company authorizing them that the said fund Have being willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you. I want you and the charitable organization where you reside to always pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a true devoted believer worthy of emulation; Whoever that wants to serve almighty must serve him in truth and in fairness. Please always be prayerful all through your life.And any delay in your reply will give room in sourcing for another organization or a trustworthy for this same purpose. Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders. May the Almighty continueto guide and protect you. Finally i want you to understand that i have personally made available 30% for your own use 10% for the expenses and 60% will be for the charity work as i have directed which you are personally going to be in charge of . May the good ALLAH the most compassionate and most merciful continue to guide you. Best regards, Mrs Fatima Abacha
