From:mrs Mary Willams Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into Business relationship.l got your contact name from the lvoirian Chamber of Commerce and lndustry.l prayedover it and selected your name among other due to its'esteeming nature and recommandation given to me as reputable and trust worthy person.l must not hasitate to confid in you for this simple and sincere business. ln briefy introduction,l am Mrs Mary willams anationality of Philippine . I am married to Mr.Willams who worked with Philippine embassy in IvoryCoast for nine years before he died in the year 2001.We were married ,for eleven years without a child. he died after a brief illness that lastedfor only four days. Before his death we were living together in good harmony. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of USD15.5Million in one of good security company here in COTE D' IVOIRE . Presently, this money is still with the security company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for he next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to Ophanage (less previlages) or to an individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here acording to my desire. I needed good and God fearing partner that will use this fund for the helping orphanages, Research centres and widows propagating the word of God and to ensurethat the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessedis the hand that grivet. I took this decision because I don?t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband,s relatives are not Christians and never loved me for once through out my marriage expereince with my late husband. therefor,I don?t want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation whereby this money will be used in an ungodly manner.Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am notafraid of death hence 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 as my Medical Doctor advised and because of the presence of my family relatives around me always. I don'twant 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 security company who will assist you and work with you concerning the deposited money in the security company. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the partner and the beneficiary of the money. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd.My happiness is that I lived a life of a aged mother and worthy Christian.Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth.Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in looking for contact for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act Accordingly as I stated here. Expecting to hearing from you. Please you can get back to me with this email adresse here (email@example.com) Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mrs Mary willams.
