My name is Mrs. Wicker E. Menendez, widow to late Dr. Nelson A.
Menendez, former owner of Petroleum & Gas Company, here in Kuwait. I am
72years old, suffering from long time Cancer of the breast. From all
indications my condition is really deteriorating and it’s quite
obvious that I won't live more than 4 weeks according to my doctors. This
is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don’t want
your pity but I need your trust.

My late husband died early last year from Heart attack, and during the
period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband
was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and
wealth.The doctor has advised me that I will not live for more than 4
weeks,so I have now decided to spread all my wealth, to contribute
mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America, Asia and
Europe.Am sorry if you are embarrassed by my mail. I found your e-mail
address in the web directory, and I have decided to contact you, but if
for any reason you find this mail offensive, you can ignore it and
please accept my apology.

Before my late husband died he was major oil tycoon, in Kuwait and
deposited(Twenty Million Dollars) in a finance company in Europe some years ago, thats
all I have left now, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it
yourself to charity .so that when I die my soul can rest in peace. The
funds will be entirely in hands and management. I hope God gives you
the wisdom to touch very many lives that is my main concern. 40% of this
money will be for your time and effort, while 60% goes to charity.

You can get back to me via my private e-mail:

God bless you.
