Dear Friend,
How are you today? My name is Mrs Linda Partridge a Canadian presently in
the United Kingdom. I know we have not meet or had earlier communication
before now, so for the purpose of my intention and request, let me start
by telling you a little about myself. I was born in the year 1940 in
Orangeville, Ontario Canada. I received my B.A. from Waterloo University
College (which is now Wilfrid Laurier University) in 1964. I had a long
and successful career at McGill where I ended up as full Professor in
(1986). I got married to late Williams Partridge in (1978) who was then a
private contractor with Steeplejack Services Group Canada, and was later
sent to work with Ghana Bauxite Company Ltd as an expatriate for 10 years.
He resigned from active duties in 2002 due to illness and died in 2004.
Though his death was a huge blow to me, having no children, I have come to
accept the fact that death is a price which every man will have to pay one

After his death, I was left with the responsibility of managing his
estate, including entitlements He received from his work place. I have
tried my best in investing this fund, but sometimes when I remember the
fact that I have no children that will inherit these estate or continue to
manage it, I feel very sad. Two year ago I was diagnosed with Uterine
Sarcoma cancer, though I have being able to get the best medical
attention,I keep going in and out of hospital, of which presently am in
London for a surgical operation. In the past years, I have being in
various charity and voluntary project, I have donated funds to agencies in
the Voluntary sector, like the Positive Women organisation here in UK, the
African HIV Policy Network,the George House Trust, the Oasis North London.
to mention a few, though this donation has being on a small amount I have
tired my best to map out a strategy that will enable this group receive
this donation from my estate even after my death.

I want to reach more people in different countries but due to my health I
have not being able to do so, which is the reason I am contacting you. I
have decided to donate the sum of Ten Million three hundred thousand
Dollars ($10,300,000.00) of my husband investment in Ghana to you as my
(Charity manager) for the purpose of establishing a charity foundation
whoes duties will be helping mainly the widows, the local hospital and
those suffering from HIV AIDS in your town and city.

Please I want you to consider this task,and on your acceptance I will
inform my family lawyer so that he can arrange the release of the funds to
you. For the purpose of this course, you will be entity to  15% of the
