Dear Friend, My name is Mrs.KAREN LINECKER I am a dying woman who have decided to donate what I have to you/ church/ mosque and the less privilege. I am 63 years old and I was diagnosed for cancer for about 9 years ago immediately after the death of my husband, who has left me everything he worked for. I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to you for the good work of God,rather than allow my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. Please pray,that the good Lord forgive me my sins.I have asked God to forgive me and believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be going in for an operation in less than one hour. I decided to WILL/donate the sum of &5,700,000 (five million seven hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows.At the moment I cannot take any telephone cal ls right now due to the fact that my relatives are around me and my health status. I have adjusted my WILL and my lawyer is aware I have changed my will you and he will arrange the transfer of the funds from my account to you.I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly,and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.Contact my lawyer with this specified contact details: HENRY HATCHER,40 PRINCESS GATE,EXHIBITION ROAD, LONDON SW7 2PH ENGLAND.TEL/FAX ; +44 701 113 2752 E-MAIL ; email@example.com and tell him that I have WILLED($5,700,000.00) to you by quoting my personal reference number Law/chamber/je/nd/WILL/TT453276542/Jrrr/086. And I have also notified him that I am WILLING that amount to you for a specific and good work. I know I don't know you but i want to render support to an individual i have not meet before in life due to the fact when my husband was young in life he received an anonymous help from an individual he did n ot know and which we have not being able to know till date, the impact he got from such gesture made us .Thanks and God bless. NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished. Regards, Karen Linecker
