Dear BelovedBrother, It is by the grace of God thatI received Christ, knowing the truth and the truth has set me free.Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of manfor witness of Godīs mercy and glory upon my life.I have the pleasure to share my testimony with you, having seen your contact fromthe Internet. I am Barrister Osaji Allen, the legal adviser to lateMr.and Mrs. Ben Smith, a British couple that lived in my Country for25 years before they both died in the plane crash late last year.These couples were good Christians, they so dedicated to God but theyhad no child till they died. Through out their stay in my country, they acquired a lot of properties like lands, house properties, etc. Astheir legal adviser, before their death, the husband Mr.Ben Smith instructed me to write his WILL. Because they had no child, they dedicated their wealth to God. According to the WILL, the properties have to be sold and the money be given out to a ministry for the work of God. As their legal adviser, all the documents for the properties were in my care.He gave me the authority to sell the properties and give out the fund to the Ministries for the work of God. I sold all the properties after their death, as instructed by Mr.Ben Smith before his death. And as matter of fact, after I sold all their properties, I realized more than $30,000,000.00 (Thirty million US dollars), and what supposed to be the percentage interest of my right legal fee was firstly deducted by me out of the total amount realized from the sold properties, this was base on the initial agreement between me and the owner of the properties before his death. Therefore the total amount left to be invested into God's work as instructed by the owner,is $30,000,000.00 (Thirty million US dollars) only. But Instead of giving the main fund out for the work of God as instructed by the owner , I converted the fund to myself with the intention of investing the fund abroad for my personal use.I was afraid of putting the fund in the Bank, because I have to give account to the bank on how I got the money. I then packaged the fund in consignments and deposited the consignments with a security company. I did not want the management of the Security Company to know the content of the consignments, therefore I registered the content of the consignments as Gold Bars. Now, the security company believes that what I deposited with them was Gold Bars which is equivelent to the amount. I had an encounter with Christ when Pastor Benny Hinn was preaching on television concerning Ananias and Saphira in Acts 5:1-11,after hearing the word of God, I gave my life to Christ and became aborn again Christian. As a born again Christian, I started reading myBible and one day, the Lord opened my eyes to Ezekiel 33: 18 and 19where the word of God says: "When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby". From the scripture, I discovered that the only way I could have peace in my life is to do what is lawful and right by giving out the fund as instructed for the workof God by the owner. I have asked God for forgiveness and I know that God has forgiven me.But I have to do what is lawful and right in thesight of God bygiving out the fund to the chosen ministry for the purpose of God's work as instructed by the owner. After fasting andprayers, I asked God to make his choice and directme to a honest Christian or the chosen ministry that deserves this fund by his Grace.I then came across your address on the Internet as I was browsing through a Christian site, and as a matter of fact, it is not only youor your ministry that I picked on the Christian site initially, but after my fervent prayer over it, then you were nominated to me throug hdivine revelation from God, so this is how I received a divine revelation from the Lord, I got your contact address, and I thendecided to contact you for the fund to be used wisely for things that will glorify the name of God. I have notified the Security Company where I deposited the consignments that contained the fund, that I am moving the consignment abroad and the security company has since been waiting for my authority for the consignment to leave my country and move broad. So if you know that you will use this fund honestly and wisely for things that will glorify God's name, then do contact me back first through email address: email@example.com for more details.You should also forward to me your physical contact address were you will like the consignments delivered to you,your direct telephone and fax number for easy communication and to fax you the documents concerning the consignments.Your prompt response will behighly appreciated. Yours in Christ, Barrister Osaji Allen
