Dear Friend. As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mrs.jovita Bogdanov the wife of Mr Vladimir Leonidovich Bogdanov jr,my husband was an oil merchant in U.A.E for Twenty years, before he died in the year2006 we were married for ten years without a child.My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.Before my Husband died in 2005 we were both born again Christians. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in Caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts however I have since lost my ability to talk as presently i'm in a hospital in U.A.E where I have been undergoing treatmentS.I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business. Since his death I decided not to re-marry 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$5.5M.(five Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S.Dollars) with a Bank in Netherlands (Europe). Presently,this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations anywhere in the World.Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness,I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please,I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in the disbursement. I have set aside 20% for you for your time and patience. While I wait to hear from you, may God be with you and your entire family. Remain blessed. Kindly send your reply to my private email address which is as follows:email@example.com Your Sister in Christ, Mrs J. Bogdanov.
