Greetings, My name is Mrs. Hanna Fernandez, widow to late Mr. Hadad Fernandez former owner of Al Hassan Petroleum and Gas Company, here in Qatar. I am 68years old, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live more than 2 months according to my doctors. This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don’t want your pity but I need your trust. My late husband died early last year from heart attack, and during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. The doctor has advised me that I will not live for more than 2 months, so I have now decided to spread all my wealth to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Haiti. Am sorry if you are embarrassed by my mail, I found your e-mail address in the web directory, and I have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive, you can ignore it and please accept my apology. Before my late husband died he was a major oil tycoon, in Qatar and deposited the sum of $125, 000, 000, 00 million dollars (One Hundred and Twenty Five million dollars) in a company some years ago, that’s all I have left now, having know my condition, I decided to establish communication in asking or need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charities. So that when I die my soul can rest in peace. The funds will be entirely in your hands and management. I hope God gives you the wisdom to touch very many lives that is my main concern. 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 case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank in Europe. 30% of this money will be for your time and effort and 70% goes to charity like I have stated. Please kindly get back to me if you will assist me or not in carrying out the good work of God, respond back with your contact details below.
