Good Day, This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i decided to contact you through this medium. As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die some day. My name is Mrs. Jannas Stafford 69 yrs old, wife of late Don Stafford. I am a dying woman who has decided to donate what I have to charity through you. When my husband was alive we prayed for fruit of the womb for God to bless us with a child, but all effort was no avail before he died, may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Due to my elationship with God as a christain i beleive it is the will of God. My late husband was a shareholder with ExxonMobil oil&gas company in Canada, after the death of my late husband his shares and entitlement from ExxonMobil oil&gas company amounting to $3,445,000(Three million four hundred and fourtyfive thousand dollars) was paid to my private deposit account. Last month i was diagnosed with incurable cancer of the lungs. Base on different kind of internet fraud going on around the world people find it difficult to beleive there are Godly people willing to donate to charity,i just want to make it clear to you this is not a fraud. I have decided to donate this money to orphanage home, Haiti earthquake victims, India train clash victims. The reason why i took this decission is because i dont have a child to inherit our estate. I will be going in for an operation, and I pray that I survive it. Presently, I have informed my consultant about my decision in WILLING this fund to charity through you. I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well. Kindly contact my lawyer so that he can arrange the release of the funds to you. I know I have never met you but my mind tells me to do this, and I hope you act sincerely. I decided that 25% of this money should be taken by you from the total sum upon the success release of this fund, because I am now too weak and fragile to do things myself because of my cancer. My relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons,i do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this decision, I know that I am going to be with the Almighty God when I eventually pass on. when i was searching your country website looking for a honest person on the internet to handle this project i pray for God guandiance he directed me to you through your email address so please dont ignore this message. I have been restricted by my doctor from taking telephone calls because I deserve all the rest I can get. Kindly Contact my lawyer Barr.
