I'm pleased for contacting you to help my husband's dream come true.I am Lady Catherine David, suffering from cancerous ailment. I am married to Engineer Silas David an Englishman who is dead. My husband was in private practice all his life before his death.Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without a child. My husband died after a protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who cannot help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 3 Million[Three Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling] in 2 boxes which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with a Finance/Security Company here in UK. Presently, this money is still with the Security company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and financially handicapped people.I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures.As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the finance/Security Company here in uk. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and members of your family.
