Greetings in the name of God, Please let this not sound strange to you. I prayed and got you email 
id from your country chambers of commerce which i have been with my late husband and liked to visit 
once more if God will in his infinite mercies.

I am Mrs Debra Bettermann,I am 61 years old,i am deaf and suffering from a long time cancer of the 
lungs which also affected my brain,from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and it 
is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that i may not live for the 
next two months,this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

I was brought up from a motherless babies home,And i was married to my late husband for twenty 
years without a child. My husband died in a fatal motor accident. Before his death we were true 
Christians and Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and 
deposited all the sum of $11 million dollars with a Security Company.

Presently,this money is still with them and the management just wrote me as the true owner to come 
forward to receive the money for keeping it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to 
somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can not come over because of my illness or they get it 

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing for cancer of the lungs. I 
have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to 

It is my last wish I now decided to divide part of this wealth, by contributing To the development 
of evangelism in Africa, America, Europe and
Asian Countries.

I took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time will soon be up. As soon as I receive 
your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security Company. I will also issue you a letter of 
authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me that you will act 
accordingly as I stated herein.

Lastly, I want you to be praying for me as regards my entire life and My health. May the Grace of 
our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and The sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.
I await your urgent reply.

Yours in Christ,
Evangelist (Mrs) Debra Bettermann
