Friend in the Lord, With due respect and humility, I write to you irrespective of the fact that you don't know me. This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as seriousness could come into your mind, I feel quite safe dealing with you in this confidential transaction. Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused by all sorts of dubious persons, but I choose to reach you through internet because it still remains the fastest, surest and most secured medium of communication at the moment. I am Mrs. Deborah G.Maxwell from Sierra Leone. I am married to Russian Citizen (Mr.Richmond Maxwell) is working with Oil and Gas Company in Republic Of Benin for ten years as an offshore engineering, before he died in the year 2006. We were married for Sixteen years with two kids, before he died in plane crash with our two kids in year 2006, which has left me everything he worked for, but before his death we were both born again Christian. I am 51 years old and I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer for about 2 years ago, since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$3.5million dollars in Finance Bank here in Republic Of Benin. Presently, this money is still in Finance Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to esophageal cancer problem. The only thing that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to Less Privileged/Charity Organization for the good work of God, rather than allow my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God to forgive me and I believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be going in for an operation within the next few days, I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going, I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I want these Funds to be using for helping orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to Endeavour that the house of God is maintained. I decided to WILL/donate the sum of US$3,500,000.00 (Three million, five hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the Lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows. At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now due to the fact that my Husband's relatives are around me and my health status, I don't want them to know about this development, I am adjusting my WILL and my family financial consultant is aware I am changing my will and they will arrange the transfer of the funds to you, and also the contact of the Finance Bank will be given to you, I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original-beneficiary of this fund. I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.
