Dear Friend,My name is Marta Abdulkarim I am a 69 years old widow, suffering from protracted cancer of the breast. From all indications, my condition is serious and very bad, the doctors say I may not survive the sickness, but as a child of God I believe in his miracles therefore, I believe that I will live to declare the glory of God in my life. My husband and our only son were killed in fatal auto accident on there way home from the hospital to see me.
My late husband was a successful businessman, a contractor with the shell petroleum, and former cabinet minister. Before his death he did some jobs for shell, just last month I got a letter from shell that the payment for the jobs are due, later last week they paid the money, I am perplexed as I do not know what to do with the money at this stage of my life coupled with my state of health and problems from my late husbands relatives they want me dead so that they will inherit all my husband and I laboured for, as if that the other things they have confiscated is not enough.
After thinking of several options, I decided to WILL the money for humanitarian and charity through you believing that you can handle this fund for the charity project, it has always being the wish of my late husband to set up charity organization, I want you to keep 30% of the money to yourself and use 70% to carry out any charity project within your community, kindly forward your full name, address, telephone and fax numbers to me via my private email (email@example.com) this will enable me furnish you with the full details, such as the amount and how the money will be paid to you.
Best regards, Marta Abdulkarim _________________________________________________________________FREE pop-up blocking with the new MSN Toolbar - get it now! http://toolbar.msn.click-url.com/go/onm00200415ave/direct/01/
