Dear Christian fellow, I am Mrs. Louisa Davies, from Mauritius. I am married to the Late Mr. George Davies who worked with the Malaysia embassy in Dubai for Nine years and he was also a Reverend, I have been in tourism for many years , my husband died in the year 2002. We were married for eleven years without a child. He 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$5.82M (Five Million, Eight Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars) in a Bank in Europe, now My Doctor have just told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Although, what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known of my condition. I decided to contact you in confidence, to make foundation with the funds for the orphanages and widows and to propagate the word of God and to ensure that orphanages are educated. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives. 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 our 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, my reason for taking this bold step is not that am afraid of death. But because I know where I am going to. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall issue you a letter of authority through my family Attorney that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. Please, hear the voice of the less privileged crying, so you should ensure to use this fund as I stated. I want you and the church to always pray for me. My joy today is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. My friend always be prayerful all through your life. Please any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a good Christian or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hear from you. Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. And please send me your Names, Address, Telephone and Fax Numbers so that it will be forwarded to the bank for the release of this fund to you. Please, I had made provision on how this fund should be used. 80% for the funding of the church, orphanage home and taking cares of the widows, 10% for you, 5% goes to my Family Attorney for his services and finally 5 % comes to the hospital for the settlement of my medical bills. God blessings to you Mrs. Louisa Davies
