Please forgive me if my plea sounds unbelievable to imagine. My family attorney who would have handled the process of executing my WILL & TESTAMENT on my behalf died early this year after a protracted illness, I therefore prayed fervently and by the special grace of GOD,i was led to you.I am Mrs. Mary Louis a native of United Kingdom, I am 62 years old. I am suffering from protracted cancer of the lungs and it has affected part of my brain cells due to complications. From all indication, my condition has deteriorated and it is very obvious according to my doctors that i may not live for the next couple of months,unless there is a divine intervention. I was orphaned at the age of four(4) and was raised in an orphanage. I was married to my late husband Engineer Steve Louis for twenty years without a child. Steve had cardiovascular condition and died of cardiac arrest few years ago. I am a people driven entrepreneur and a very God fearing woman, Steve and I lived in Nigeria for over 18 years, where my husband a Petrochemical Engineer by profession worked and rose through the ranks to become an executive director with a multinational construction and oil servicing conglomerate, before his death. He also established huge private investments that i controlled while he lived. Consequent upon the confounding and shocking demise of my priceless husband, i opted as a rule, not to re-marry. when my cancer ailment became terminal & more so because i do not have a next of kin to bequeath all that Steve & I laboured for, i sold off all our choice assets and other inherited properties comprising of a shopping mall, an hotel, shares, bonds, jewelries and other valuable family treasures and deposited the proceeds amounting to USD$10,000,000.00 (TEN MILLION DOLLARS ONLY) with First Inland Bank of Nigeria plc. As i write to you, this fund is still deposited with the bank. The management of the bank just wrote me as the sole beneficiary of the fund because of the unserviceable status of the fund and suggested to me in a 2 paragraph statement to issue a letter of authorization to someone who can manage the fund on my behalf because of my terminal illness and also threatened that the fund could be confiscated upon my failure to adhere to their Banking rules and regulations within a stipulated time frame. I am presently on admission at the intensive care unit of a London hospital, located at fulham road in west London United Kingdom. It is the leading cancer treatment hospital in the world and i have been undergoing treatment there for late-stage terminal cancer of the lungs. I am computer literate, I rarely talk but was fortunate enough to have my personal laptop with me and was permitted by my physicians to use it,hence I am writing from my sick bed.It is my last WISH therefore to see that 85% of this fund is invested substantially in any charitable organization of your choice and administered as you may deem fit, especially to the orphanage homes and homes for destitute and the mentally retarded. you can also donate part of the funds to churches and mosques and to those struck by natural disaster.I have earmarked 5% of the total fund on cost of administration of WILL & TESTAMENT and also on logistics and other sundry arrangements that you may require. I crave your indulgence as a God fearing individual and an uncommon humanitarian that cares so much about the plight of the less-privileged as much as i do to take it upon yourself and use this fund for the above mentioned purposes,i took this painstaking decision in other to help humanity in my little capacity before i die.My sojourn on earth will soon be up and that is the truth. Note that as soon as I receive your reply and personal information as listed below, I shall give you the official contact of the First Inland Bank plc officials,to enable you contact the Bank without delays.I will also issue you with an official letter of authorization,so that my bankers will recognize your status as the new beneficiary of the fund.Interestingly 10% of the total sum is set aside as your compensation for accepting to play this significant role for me and i hope you will appreciate my kind gesture. The letter of authorization will further prove that you are the new beneficiary of my FUND, ESTATE, WILL & TESTAMENT.The fund has an open beneficiary mandate and as such, it is whom i authorize or appoint to act on my behalf that the bank will recognize and release the funds to and by this email,the onus has fallen on you.Please assure me that you will not treat this offer with levity but will rather give my bequest continued existence.
