I pray you find peace with this. I'm Mrs. Rita Underwood from Scotland, wife to late Dr. Harry Underwood an Ex-Chairman of T.O.C. London who died in a ghastly motor accident on his way to a board meeting. We were married with no child and I decided not to remarry since I'm now old. When my husband was alive, he deposited $16, 500, 000.00 with a bank here in Asia which he intended to use for a charity project. And the bank wrote me a week ago to come and claim this money as the next of kin or give an authority letter to someone who can do it for me. I can't do this myself because I am presently in a hospital where I've been taking treatment for cancer of the lungs for the past four years. My doctors have told me that I have only but few weeks to live that is why I decided to use this fund for charity work. I have no family who can do this for me, so I decided to look for a sincere person or family who can use 80% of the fund to run the charity. As soon as you respond, I will write an authority letter to the bank to release the fund to you. I want you to promise me that you will use this fund exactly as I have said.
I await your urgent reply.
Mrs Rita Underwood
