Dear Child of God,
Good day and compliments of the seasons, i know this letter will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence. I am Mrs.Elin Phillip an aging widow of 61 years old suffering from long time cancer of the throat.
I have some funds I inherited from my late husband, the sum of US$10,000,000.00 and I needed a very honest and God fearing Christian who can withdraw this money then uses the funds for Charity works. I WISH TO GIVE THESE FUNDS TO YOU FOR CHARITY WORKS. I contacted you after studying your background after honest prayers to the LORD to bring me a helper and i decided to contact you to handle these trust funds in good faith before anything happens to me after my surgery which comes up soon.
I am desperately in keen need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you for this task, you must not fail me and the millions of the poor people in our todayâs WORLD. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved 100% RISK FREE with full legal proof. Please if you would be able to use the funds for the Charity works please kindly let me know immediately.
Warmest Regards, Reply me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
