Hello, Greetings in the name of GOD. I am Mrs. Peace Kofi from South Africa. I was married to the Late Dr. David Kofi, who worked with the Kuwait Embassy here in Nigeria,for nine years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for eleven years and did not have children.He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both happily married.Since his death I have decided not to re-marry or have a child outside of marriage to him. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $25M(Twenty Five Million U.S.Dollars) in Commercial Bank here in Nigeria. Presently, this money is still under the safe keeping of the Bank here in Nigeria.Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problems.Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to charitable home or to a reliable individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a person that will use this fund on orphanages and widows propagating the word of almighty GOD. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not trustworthy and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by them. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reasons for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard at-least for now because of my health, since my husband's relatives are always around me. I dont want them to know about this development. With GOD all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I will forward your personal information to my lawyer and he will contact you and as well forward your personal information's to the Finance company here in Nigeria, so that they will contact you as the legal owner of this fund before releasing the fund into your account. My Lawyer will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original-beneficiary of this fund. Delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another reliable individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hear from you as soon as possible. Remain blessed. Mrs. Peace Kofi
