Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the truth, I had no choice than to 
do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for 
witness of God & his mercies and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs. Anna van Gogh the wife of Mr. Harold van Gogh, my husband worked with the shell in 
Netherlands for twenty years before he died in the year 2001.We were married for ten years without 
a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we 
were both born again Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the 
Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$3.5M.(Three Million 
Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Bank in Asia. Presently, this money is still with the 
Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of 
this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I 
cannot come over. Presently, I’m in a hospital in Netherlands where I have been undergoing 
treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me 
that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity 
organizations anywhere in the World. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my 
wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any 
of them.

Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a 
person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows 
propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to 
understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don't have any 
child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want 
my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this 
money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not 
afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the 
Lord. Exodus {14 VS 14} says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't 
need any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my 
husband's relatives 
 around me always.

I don't want them to know about the claims for these funds. Kindly send your reply to my private 
email address which is as follows:

Your Sister in Christ,
Mrs.Anna van Gogh.
