|Dearly Beloved in Christ |
Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am Mrs. June Rabon Aguon , I am an American nationality , I grew up in Africa and I am also presently hospitalized in Dakar Senegal West Africa, due to my illness. Presently, I'm with my laptop in this Hospital, where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer for over one year period now .
My husband was once the Managing Director of Shell Oil Company in Benin Republic , where I and my husband spent most of our lives. I am a widow to Late Mr. John Mark Aguon . I have served the Lord all through my life, from long time cancer of the breast to a very critical stroke. From all indications, my condition is serious and it is quite obvious that I may not live more than two months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe state and my doctor has told me this. The one that disturbs me most is the stroke that paralyzed half of my body.
My late husband was killed during his reign as the Managing Director of Shell Oil Company in Benin , and during the period of our marriage we had two daughters who were also killed along with their father through food poison in Shell Oil Company convention of 2003 in Benin.
My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all His business and wealth. Presently my doctor told me that I may not live for more than two months, though I am not scared about this, I am not afraid of death, hence I will be in the bosom of the Lord forever, any time my God calls me home So, I now decided to look for an organization or an individual who is God fearing, that will use the fund for charity organization, by contributing to the development of Evangelism in the world, Assisting Motherless Babies homes and Poor churches all over the world.
I selected you after browsing the Internet for this purpose and prayed over it, for the fact that I always go to God in prayers in situations like this, because He is the Alfa and Omega. I am willing to donate all the money I have with the Finance Firm , the sum of 705 billion CFA , which is equivalent to US$15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million United States Dollars) to you for the Propagation of Evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you.
Please note that this fund is lying with the Finance Firm in Benin , where I and my husband deposited the funds along with our family lawyer. My family Lawyer will file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in your name.
Please, do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use, you will have a reasonable percentage of the total funds when the fund gets to your custody, before investing the remainder of the fund for God`s works Please.
Lastly, I want you and your church to keep praying for me regarding my health, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life, is vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the crown of life.
1)Please include your direct telephone number where our Lawyer can reach you easily, so that he can call you and have a word with you,
2)Your direct address,
3) Copy of your Identification, (4) Your Bank Receiving info.
I will plead with you to please reply this email to (email@example.com) because the one I used in writing you is not secured, so please respond to (firstname.lastname@example.org) and as you do that God Almighty would bless you. I will be transferred to another hospital Back to Benin Republic tomorrow due to my critical state of health.
As the Apostle Paul told the Ephesians , I also pray , That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ , the father of Glory , may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him
May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and forever more, amen.
Kindly reply to (email@example.com)
God bless you
I await your urgent reply
Mrs. June Rabon Aguon
