Dearest Beloved, Please read this slowly and carefully, as it may be one of the most important emails you ever get. I am Mrs. Maria Fernandez. I was married to Late Joseph Fernandez from Spain. The Director of Veekrol Link . Ltd Cote d' Ivoire, a seasoned contractor in West African Region. He died on Monday, 31 July 2003 in Paris. We were married for seven years without a child. After his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home. When my late husband was alive, he deposited the sum of $12.2Million USD in a Financial Institute, which is now wasting there. My Doctor told me that I would not last long due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to better the lives of the less privileged. I need an honest and trust worthy individual that will utilize this money in accordance with my instruction. I want the funds to be used in funding religious organizations, orphanages, the less privileged and propagating the word of God. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are very unkind to me and I don't want my husbands hard earned money to be misused. 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. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my course and I shall hold my peace. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security firm, and my Attorney also. For legitimacy, he will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose. If you are not interested, kindly pardon me for contacting you through this medium. Thanks, Kindly reply me through my email box firstname.lastname@example.org Yours sincerely, Mrs.Maria Fernandez.
