From: Marianne Lawson, 96 Euston Road London NW1 2DB Fax: 44-25-7432-7641 My name is Marianne Lawson formerly known as Marianne Trace, a muslim but now a Christian convert from Kuwait. I am suffering from cancerous ailment. I used to be married to Sir Bobby Lawson, an English man (Deceased).My husband was into private practice all his life before his death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without a child. My husband died after a protracted illness after his business trip from Saudi Arabia. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who cannot help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 10.5 Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in the UK. Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, I have decided to donate this fund 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, the down- trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband relatives around me. I do not want them to know about this development. You can contact me through my private email address: email@example.com As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you Directives on how to contact the bank in UK. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein because acquisition of wealth is vanity upon vanity. The true sense of existence lies not in our ability to be successful but in our ability to empower people to become successTful. Hope to hear from you soon. Marianne Lawson.
