Dear Anointed, I live in Avda,Los Almendros, Edf. Etxezuri III, p.7,2?A 03500 Benidorm, Alicante, Spain. I was married to Dr. Ego Luis who was an industrialist before his death in 2002. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only 7 days. He provided well for me. Before his death we were Muslims. I was determined to die a Muslim until the great Lord opened my eyes and directed me to be born again. As it is, I am now a new creature and live no longer for myself, but for he that died for me in the cross of Calvary. May He be praised forever and ever. For some years now, I have been battling with cancer and recently, my Doctors informed me that I may not last for the next three months and advised that I put my affairs in order and make plans for my transition to meet the Lord. This is why I am now writing to you. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Thirty Million Dollars in a Finance and Security company here. The money has been moved to their Head office in Germany because of storage facilities and I am too ill and frail to travel. I have decided to donate this fund to you, provided you shall agree to utilize this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God to the farthest distant land. The Lord says that we shall be preachers of his words from Samaria to Judea and to the extremities of the earth. You must ensure that this money is not used in an ungodly manner or to promote a worldly venture. Please do not feel pity for me and my situation, for I am not afraid of death as I know shall soon be in the bosom of the Lord. Remember that He went ahead of us to prepare a place for us. One more thing. I would not want you to disclose the source of this money. No place or foundation should be named after me. The bible says that when you make a gift with the right hand, the left should not know what the right has done. I have a phone number, but because of my poor health, I may not be able to speak with you all the time, but if you must speak with me, my nephew would assist me. He is well informed of my decision. Please pray over all that I have said and evaluate yourself carefully to be sure that you can handle my above wish. Thereafter you should contact me and I will give you directions on how to receive the said fund. you can as well contact me with email@example.com Sincerely, Mrs. Wetaram Ego.
