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 can not 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 claims for this funds.Kindly send your reply to my 
private email address which is as follows:
Your Sister in Christ,

Mrs.Anna van Gogh.
