From:Mrs Ruth John /Mr.John D patirrct(NON SPAM) CP 120, Rua da Palma Carlos, Sгo Tomй SAO TOME ISLAND,SOUTH ATLANTIC OCEAN. Dearest, This note might seem strange or probably untrue but this is real. Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I sincerely ask for forgiveness for i know this may seem like a complete intrusion to your privacy but right about now this is my option of communication. This note might seem strange or probably untrue considering the amount of junk mails we receive daily, but i believe this is still the most genuine way of contacting a true character like you. I hereby request for your urgent assistance to help my family in retreiving and investing the sum of US$52 million which was deposited with a security company.Though my husband deposited this fund before he died as he works with one of the oil producing communities.He died after breif illness because of the murder of one of my son by unknown gun men in Saudi Arabia.We could have done this on our own but for the fact that our urgly culture allow my husband relatives to intervain in our family affairs. My husband relatives clamied that my hands are in my husbands death which is not true.The painful part of it was that they threw me and my chaildren away from my matrimonial home which i suffered for with my husband and confistacted all my husband properties.Thank God that my husband told me about this money before he died and he never wanted anybody to know about it as he told me to look for a foreign partner to claim this fund and assist us in investment overseas. If you are interested to claim this fund on our behalf,more details will be forwarded to you.We will also discuss your own share of the transaction. My assurance is that this is real and no risk involved in this transaction. Waiting for your urgent response. Yours in Sincerely, Mrs Ruth John.
