My Dear Good Friend,
I am contacting you to let you know my desire to establish a charity foundation in your country with this sum of $18.700.000 ( Eighteen Million Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which I inherited from my late husband ( Mr.Ayu Powa.)
Actually, I am Mrs. Zainab Powa a former president Rotary Club, Nassarawa- Kano (RI District 9135) in West Africa and it has been my wish in touching the lives of people as well as serving humanity which was the main reason why Inner Wheel was established.I believe it is easy to make friends with people who belong to the same class with us,same background socially,politically,educationally,economically religiously etc. But if our friendship is limited to those we identify and can be identified with, that means we have not achieved anything for humanity, When we extend our hands of friendship to the poor,sick,socially marginalized in the society, the abandoned,then we could be seen to touch lives.
Actually, i got your email contact some time ago through the internet when i was searching for a reliable and trusted person to assist in this project when my sickness has not deteriorated to this stage and after my prayers and fasting it was you that God directed me to contact for this project among the 3 emails i chose.
In fact the above was what prompted me to see that this money is invested to any Lucrative business / organization of your choice in your country or any country of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organizations,motherless baby's home, mosques, churches, Schools, supporting destitute,aged men and women or whatever you may have in mind that will be to the benefit of the less fortunate.
I took this decision because I am presently hospitalized here where I am undergoing treatment for my up coming breast cancer surgery Operation and alternative treatment for my cardiovascular disease (stroke).
As you may wish to know there are no risks involved in this whole transaction, I therefore look forward to your early reply so that I will give you further details as my duly assigned sole beneficiary.
I took this decision because am not in good relationship with my late husband's relatives since i did not have any child for him and they have been squandering all his money and other properties they can lay their hands on and i don't want them to do same to this money too as it was deposited in my name.thus taking this decision.
Please do get back to me immediately you get this message if you think that you can handle this project so that i can give you more information.
Thanking you in advance for your consideration,And please remember to put me in your prayers always in as much i know that i will not survive.
Mrs.Zainab Rose Powa .
