Dear Friend in the lord,
Please use this money for the Churches,Islamic and Less Privileged in the world.
Greetings to you and your family in the name of God,in my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and pains taking efforts via searching i made on the internet on my bed side.
I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my last wishes.My name is Mrs. Agatha Wilson, I'm a 58 years old woman and my Country is Sierra- Leone,i was a merchant and owned two businesses in Dubai,i was also married with two children.
My husband and two children where involved in a plane crash in the Dec,25th Before this happened,my business and concern for making money was all I care for,i never really cared about other values in life.
But since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families,i have been helping orphans in orphanage/motherless,i have also donated some money for humanitarian needs,only recently I saw on television the colossal loss of properties and livelihood people in Canberra, Australia through fire.
I was moved with great pity and compassion that I decided to make this contribution on assisting people over there or any part of the world like Asia/ Europe and America that might still need any financial help,i have kept (US,4 Million) Four Million United States Dollars in a long-term deposit in a Finance company in Cotonou Benin Republic West Africa.
Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for Oesophagi Cancer at International Memorial Hospital Cotonou.
I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few weeks to live,It is my last wish to see this money distributed to victims of the fire outbreak in Australia and other charity organization in the World like i said,i have enclosed for you the Current Photogragh I took below Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness,I cannot live with the agony entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.
Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit with the help of my Lawyer and distributes it accordingly Use your judgment to distribute the money and keep 20% of it to yourself.Feel free to re-imburse yourself when you have the money for any expences you made during the process of collecting/claiming the Funds on my behalf.
Please If you are willing to help,please reply as soon as possible,again I will allow you to communicate with the financial company directly upon the receipt of your reply because I want this project to be completed before the end of this month before i die according to the Doctor.
And also attach to me in your return mail your personal details for
familiarity,May the good lord bless you.
