Compliments of the day to you! By this e-mail, I do sincerely apologies for my intrusion of your privacy. However, I have a serious concern with which I believe you might have help and for this reason, I can not but reach out to someone. My names Mrs.Mariam BamBo, a Nationality of Cape Verde. I am married to Mr. Jacob Bambo , who worked with United Nation for 14 years before he was killed in a Bomb Blast in Afghanistan whiles on a mission.
We were a dedicated Christians (Catholic) and decided to serve mankind to the best of our ability. Since his death, I have lived with the memories, fighting effortlessly to live a normal life but all to no avail. I suffered mentally and psychologically and shortly was diagnosed of Cancer. I lived with the scourge praying earnestly for divine intervention. Just a month ago, the doctor informed me that I have just about some months more to live. I was shocked. I dont accepted the news. My dear beloved, it is in this regard that I write to you, having sourced your Address from a database in my late husband's internet Dozier after fervent Prayers.
Before my husband died, he deposited a sum of $15.3 Million U.S.Dollars (Fifteen Million, three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with a Bank. I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no One unless I instruct them to do so The Bank. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that I may direct. This is the Situation. I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. I have wholeheartedly decided to donate the entirety of this fund to any devoted person or organization and to achieve this; I need an individual also that will utilize these funds adherently for these purposes:
1: For the sick, less-privileged and destitute
2: For the Widows and the motherless babies’ e.t.ch.
3: orphanages, Research centres and widows propagating.
These are the wishes I have with my late husband. They are the desires of my heart, hence my decision as I do not have a child to take over my inheritance. Please, understand that I am not doing this because of fear of death as I am certain know where my place already is. At this point, friends, well wishers, and my husband’s relatives are all clambered around me as I sojourn in my hospital bed and are unaware of my plight, hence I will not be able to make an open conversation.
When I receive your response, I will direct you where the deposit portfolio transfer of ownership is. The transfer of ownership certification cost and other miscellaneous expense shall be bear by you. For this purpose, I have decided to offer you 25% of the total fund. All I need from you is Truthfulness, Honesty and Sincerity assuring me that you can in all honesty and obedience utilize the funds for the purpose with which it is meant. In case, a quick response from you will be highly appreciated as I am already on a count-down and may not have time to finalize the procedures.
Please, do not see this as a strange possibility or an unbelievable opportunity to make wealth, rather see this as a rare chance to assist the less privileged in truth and in spirit with a substance. Do not betray my confidence in you.
I await your immediate response.
Thank You and Bless You richly!
Mrs. Mariam Bambo.
