Dear friend,

I am Madam Tacy Williams, and I have been suffering from Ovarian cancer deseed and the doctor says that I have just two days to live. I am an Jordanian Woman. But base in Africa Burkina Faso for more than Ten years now as a merchant in cocoa and cotton exportation. Now that I am about to end the race of life like this, without any family members and no child. 

I have $2.5 Million US DOLLARS. Two Million Five Houndred Thousand Us Dollars in Africa Development Bank(ADB) Burkina Faso which I instructed the bank to give to Christ the King Missionary Home in Burkina Faso . But my mind is not at rest as I am writing this letter now through the help of my computer beside my sick bed.

I also have ($4.5 Million US Dollars) Four Million Five Houndred Thousand Us Dollars at Ecobank here in Burkina Faso and I have instructed the bank to transfer the money to the first foreigner that will apply to the bank after I have gone so that bank should release the fund to him/her but you will assure me that you will take 50% of the money and give 50% to the orphanage home in your country for my heart to rest. You are to contact the bank through this email address:

Yours fairly friend 
Madam Tacy Williams.
