Dearest in Christ, I am the above named person undergoing medical treatment in United Kingdom. I am married to Engr. Robert H. George who worked with W.H.O in Central African Republic for over three decades before he died on 5th of July in the year 2005. We were married for fifteen years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for two weeks before his death, he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden and the less privileged in the society. And since his death, I have been trying to get someone I can trust to help me execute his wish, hence my sending you this letter. Before his death; he deposited One Trunk Box/ Personal Valuables containing the sum of $12.8M (TWELVE MILLION AND EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS) with a security company here in Spain, but he did not disclose the content of deposited personal consignment to the security company for security reasons. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have a very short time to live due to cancer related problems, but what disturbs me most though, is the stroke I had recently. Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money in the way I am going to instruct herein. I want an individual that will use this to fund and provide succor to poor and indigent persons, orphanages, and above all those affected in the earth quake that happened recently in Haiti. I understand that blessed is the hand that gives; I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not 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 since I know where I am going, to be with GOD. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Almighty. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I do not want them to know about this development. In anticipation to your kind response, kindly contact my late husband's representing Attorney Mr. Arthur Martins on his direct Telephone: +447553469314, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Fax.+ 44 208 082 5067 he will fast track the process of the release of fund through the security company where my husband lodged the family trunk box for safe keeping in Spain. I will instruct him to issue you a Letter of Authority and Change of Ownership Certificate, which will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me. Whosoever that wants to serve the Almighty must serve him with all his heart, mind and soul and in truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your response will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act according to my instructions herein. Hoping to hear from you soonest, thank you and May the Almighty God Bess You. Yours sincerely, Mrs. Elina George Elinagggg@breakthru.com
