Hello dearest one my name is Mrs hilda davis from Australia. I am married to Dr davis who worked with our Embassy in cote d ivoire for a period of 8 years before he died We were married for 13 years without a child before he died after a brief illness Since his death I decided not to marry again due to my religious belief When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$9.5m(Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United State American dollars)with a Bank in cote d ivoire. Presently this money is still in the custody of the Bank in cote d ivoire. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Four months due to cancer sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this money to churchs, organisation or good person that will utilise this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want you to use this money for churchs, Charity organisation, orphanages, widows and other people that are in need. l took this decision because I don''t have any child that will inherit this money . Moreover, my husband relatives are not close to me since I devolop a Cancer problem and it had been their wish to see me dead in order to inherit his wealth since we have no Child. These people are not worthy of this inheritance. This is why I am taking this decision. As soon as I receive your reply I will give you the contact of the Bank in cote d ivoire where this money was deposited. I will also issue a letter of authorisation to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. I also want you to always put me in prayer. Any delay in your reply may give me room to look for another good person for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here in. Be noted that this transation will cost you a little money to get the changing of ownership certificate of the fund to your name,30% of the total money will go for your own use and your family including the expenses you will made while the rest of 70% will go for the churchs, Charity organisation, orphanages, widows and other people that are in need. Hoping to receive your response soonest. at (email@example.com) Thanks and Remain blessed Yours sister in the Lord Mrs Hilda Davis
