(Dear truly of God)
I was touched by God to make a free donation of my fortune from my late husband Smith Brown through you. I am talking of $8,500,000 US dollar in my bank account for A good charitable work of God to less privilege (Orphans, patients, widows, disabled, war victims etc) among us. I contacted you by the special grace of God. I used this possible means to reach you because I can not talk on telephone regarding my illness. Please, hark to this humble mail from I Mrs. Martha Brown. I am childless widow and a Christian fellow suffering from an oesophageal cancer disease.
For long now I have been with pains and agony of the illness, I have undergone series of treatments but no improvement. Recently my doctor said that I will not last forth coming Month and my living is unpredictable. Meanwhile I am no longer sure of my recovery; By the special grace of God i wish to make a generous offer of this sum (USD$8.5 Million) through you. I want you to carry out this solemn work of God on my behalf because my days are numbered and i can not continue. I declare 30% of the total money for your personal use While 70% of the money will go to the charity work.
I will give you the contact address of my bank Banco Santander Bank as soon as I get your reply and convinced of your honesty. Moreover, further discusion in this matter will require your official presence to change the related documents to your name due to my illness of course will not allow me to move out of this hospital bed, meanwhile the bank will also request for your present to sign the release order document considering the amount of money involved (8,500,000.00 USD) On this reason you will make arrangement to undertake 3/4 working days in order to meet with my lawyer to enable him make sure that you are properly handed over the fund to go on with charity project.
I hope my letter will find you in good health condition. Don't forget to always pray for me because all my hope to survive is in God the creator who holds death and life.
