My Dear Beloved,

I am the above named person but now undergoing medical treatment
in Netcare Operation Centre Sandton South Africa.
I am married to Dr. Thompson Crawford who worked with British
Judicial Commission in Chelsea England for over a decade
before he died on 5th of July in the year 2003. We were married
for fifteen years without a child. He died after a brief
illness that lasted for two weeks.
Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden
and the less privileged in the society. Since his death I decided not
to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home. When my late
husband was alive he deposited the sum of £10 Million (Ten Million
Pounds sterling) with one Finance/Security Company in Europe.
Presently, this money is still with the Security Company. Recently,
my Doctor told me! that I would not last for the next 4 months due to
a rare form of cancer of the pabcreas. Though what distu! rbs me most
is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund
to an indiv idual or better still a God fearing person who will
utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want an
individual that will use this to fund and provide succor to poor and
indigent persons, orphanages, and widows and for propagating peace in
the universe.
I understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this
decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money
and my husband relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and
I do not want my husbands hard earned money to be misused or spent in
the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not w! ant a
situation where this money will be used in an ungod ly manner, hence
the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death
hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the
bosom of the Almig! hty. I do not need any telephone communication in
this regard becau se of my health, and because of the presence of my
husband's relatives around me always. I do not want them to know
about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as
I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
Finance/Security Company in Europe. I will also issue you a letter of
authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this
fund. I want you to always pray for me.

My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Whosoever
that wants to serve the Almighty must serve him with all his heart
and mind and soul and also in truth. Please always be prayerful all
through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in
sourcing for an individual for this same purpose. Please assure me
that you will act according to my specification herein.
Hoping to hear from you. Thank you and may the Almighty bless you
Yours sincerely,
Mrs. Mafuane Crawford.
