Dearest One,

Best compliments of the season. I will like you to read this mail carefully for you to be able to 
understand the details of my mail and the reason for coming into contact with you. I believe that 
knowing each other has bound us together with a trust that you will not betray me nor God.

My name is Mrs. Anne Shakur, married to late Mr. Luke Shakur, who worked with an oil company here 
in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in October 2005. He died after a fatal accident that 
could have claimed the lives of the entire family. Before his death we were married for twenty 
years with a child. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of USD$8.5 Million (Eight 
million five hundred thousand US Dollars) with one of good banks here in Cote d'Ivoire. Presently, 
this money is still in the bank. Recently my Doctor told me that I may not last more than the next 
three months due to my cancer illness. Though what disturbs me most is my partial stroke. Having 
known my faith, I decided to donate this fund to charity or better still a God fearing individual 
that will utilize this money according to my instruction.

I want a good person that will use this fund for orphanage, research centers and widows and for 
propagation of the word of God. I took this decision knowing that I have a child that will inherit 
this money but my son cannot carry out this work because he is still a kid. Again i and my late 
husband decided to leave some amount for our son to help him make a good living. Our son is 17years 
old now and is growing up here in Africa, He is still a kid and my husbandís relatives are envious 
of us and I donít want my family's hard earned money to be misused. I once asked members of my 
family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity 
organization but they refused and kept the money to themselves.

Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what i have given them. I 
don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence comes the reason 
for taking this decision. I am not afraid of death for I believe I will be in the kingdom of God. I 
will want you to help me receive this deposit in your account and distribute it according to the 
instructions i will give you later.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank. I will also issue you a 
letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always 
pray for me because the joy of the Lord God is my strength. Whoever that wants to serve God must 
serve him in truth and spirit. Please always be prayerful all through your life.

Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
Mrs. Anne Shakur
