I am Mrs. Mary koffi, I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise and i have been surffering from ovarian cancer disease and the doctor says that i have just two days to leave.I am from (Ottawa) Canada but based in Africa Burkina Faso since eight years ago as a business woman dealing with gold exportation.Now that i am about to end the race like this,without any family members and no child.
I have $2.5 Million US DOLLARS in Ecobank Burkina Faso which i instructed the bank to give St Andrews Missionary Home in Burkina Faso.But my mind is not at rest because i am writting this letter now through the help of my computer beside my sick bed.
I also have $4.5Million US Dollars at Groupe Bank of Africa here in Burkina Faso and i instructed the bank to transfer the money to the first foreigner that will apply to the bank after i have gone that they should release the fund to him or her,but you will assure me that you will take 50% of the money and give 50% to the orphanages home in your country for my heart to rest.You are to contact the bank telex department office immediately through this email address: email@example.com
Yours fairly friend,
Mrs. Mary koffi
