Dear Friend, I hereby write this email to you with great sorrow in my heart and heavy tears in my eyes simply because my Doctor just told me that i will die in three weeks time.I grew up as an Orphan and so sad that i don't have anybody/family member to take care of my wealth despite my success in life. As a result of this development,i would like to will my money which is deposited in a financial Institution to you on trust and fearness of God.I implore you to use the Money judiciously to build charity organizations for the saints and the needy. I authorize 20% of the total sum in your favour as compensation and entitlement While 80% of the money should go to charity organizations and orphanage homes.The total money in question is $5.5million dollars. I will provide you with other informations once you indicate your willingness. Best Regards, Mr Jerry Hughes.
