Dear beloved friend, I know that this letter may be a very big surprise to you, I am giving you my trust and wish you will give me back the trust i have given you. I believe that you will be honest to fulfill my final wish before I will die. I am Mr. Evans Elisea, I am 58 years old, I am suffering from a long time cancer of the brain .From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond the next two months, this is because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage. I was brought up in a motherless babies home, and was married to my late wife for twenty years without a child. My wife and I are true Christians, but quite unfortunately, she was killed during the (ABIDJAN- BOUAKE) Crisis some years back. Since her death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my belongings and deposited all the sum of $10.2million dollars with a security company In Ivory Coast where i lived with my late wife all our lives, as it was packaged and registered as a personal Valuable. Presently, this money is still in their custody, and the management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward to receive the Deposit after keeping it for so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I cannot come over as a result of my illness, Presently, I’m with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment. I have since lost my ability to walk about or do anything by myself and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested in any business of your choice and the gain made every year or 6 months as the case may be, distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless babies home where I come from. I want your good humanitarian, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows around you, 20% for you, I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because I have no further option. I hope you will help me see that my last wishes come true. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company. I will also issue you a letter of authority which will prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. I will be happy if you can come down to Ivory Coast if possible Hope to hear from you soonest at: Contact me direct via this email: email@example.com Awaiting your reply Yours Sincerely Mr. Evans Elisea
