This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don't want your pity but I need your trust. My late husband died early last year from heart attack, and during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death,I inherited all his business and wealth. The doctor has advised me that the situation is terrible and it better i give the money to charity homes, so I have now decided to spread all my wealth, to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America, Asia and Europe. I dont want to give the money to any close friend or organisations, because they may use it for themself. Am sorry if you are embarrassed by my mail. I found your e-mail address in the web directory, and I have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive, you can ignore it and please accept my apology. Before my late husband died he was a major oil tycoon, in Saudi Arabia and deposited the sum of $18.5M Dollars (Eighteen Million and five hundred thousand united states Dollars) with a financial institution in Europe some years ago, this is all I have left now, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charity ,so that i will know the funds is in your hands and management. I hope you will have mind and wisdom to touch very many lives, that is my main concern , I have also decided that 10% of this money will be for your time and effort, while 90% goes to charity.
