I am Lady Maureen Young, married to Sir James Lee Young From England who is dead; My late husband died september 8, 2001 after fighting for years with cancer. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged by all means possible which was what we did with joy till his demise.
When my late husband was alive he made a safe deposit of GB 18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million Great British pounds sterling) which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the breast cancer I am suffering from.
I have decided to donate this money to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my husband's effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially in your country. Being aware of the flamboyant style of life my husbands relatives are used to and the misuse of his previous investment and ventures under their care, I have decided to use you to put a smile on the faces of the less privileged.
Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable me guide you on how to receive it. I hope to hear from you in no distant time. Please contact me via this email: for more details.
I await your prompt response. 
Sincerely Yours,
Madam Maureen Young.
