Dear Respected Friend,
With Due Respect and Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground, however, this is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will.
Please I am contacting you to let you know my desire to establish a charity foundation in your country with this sum of US$3.5Million (Three Million five hundred thousand United States dollars) which I inherited from my late husband (Dr.Alfred D.Makinze) It is my desire to see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice in your country and distributed each year among the charity organizations, motherless baby’s home, mosques, churches, Schools, supporting destitute aged men and women or whatever you may have in mind that will be to the benefit of the less fortunate. I took this decision because I was raised from a motherless baby’s home and presently, I'm hospitalized here in (London) where I am undergoing treatment for my up coming breast cancer surgery operation.
Please reply as soon as possible, confirming your acceptance to this proposition so that I will give you all the relevant information that will authorise the release and transfer of the fund to you as my duly assigned representative. Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward hearing from you shortly.
