My name is Mrs. Veronica Champalimaud, I am from Portugal . Daughter of late Antonio de Sommer Champalimaud my father was the rich man in Portugal . http://www.wsws.org/articles/2004/may2004/port-m27.shtml I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived. I got your contact from my personal search into the Internet and was inspired to seek your co-operation; I want you to help me clear this Consignment (funds) that is already in an Asset Management Company Abroad, which was shipped through a courier agent. The content of the package is $80,000,000.00 all in $100 bills but the courier company does not know that it is money that I have in the consignment. All I want you to do for me now is to act as my Nominated Beneficiary (NEXT OF KIN) that will make the claim of the consignment on my behalf. Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Somalia and Malaysia . Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan ; they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them any more, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of eighty Million United States Dollars ($80, 000, 000, 00) all in $100 bills that I have with an Asset Management Company Abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. l will give you more details when I get your reply to this mail.
