From:Mrs Sylvia Rogge 76 Haringvliet 5626CK Eindhoven Netherlands. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Dearly Beloved, It is by the grace of the Lord that I send you this letter , Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of The Lord for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of Gods mercy and glory upon my life. I am Mrs.Sylvia Rogge the wife of Dr.Dennis Rogge, My husband was a very wealthy and influential.He worked with the Royal Family of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei Darussalam. My husband worked with the royal family for over a decade and was directly in charge of properties and other assets bought with the sultanate's oil wealth and made a lot of commission before he died on the 25th of September in the year 2003 . We were married for Twenty One years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only Four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US $8.5M. (Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Bank in Europe Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over. Presently, I'm in a hospital in EINDHOVEN - Netherlands where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations any where in the World. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches, Tsunami victims orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. It is said that blessed is the hand that giveth I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly 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 Lord. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't 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 my Attorney in the Netherlands as he will be the one to assist you in laying claims for this funds.Please contact me through my confidential email address for the safety of this project: email@example.com Yours Ever.
