Dear Friend,

I am Mrs. Sarah Welsh, an English woman who is suffering from cancerous ailment. I am married to 
Sir Jim Welsh who also is an English man though dead now. My husband worked with the Nigeria 
Railways for over two decade before the cold hand of death took him away on the 23rd of July 2003 
at about 2:00 AM. Our marriage lasted for over a decade without any fruit of the Womb. My husband 
died after a protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the 
Less-privileged individuals within the United Kingdom, Europe, North and South America, Africa and 
the rest of the globe as he had passion for persons who cannot help themselves due to physical 
disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a child from this 
relationship, which never came.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$10,000,000.00 (Ten Million US Dollars) 
with a bank in Nigeria. Presently, this money is still with the bank. Recently, my doctor told me 
that I have a limited or numbered days on earth and that my life Span will not exceed 150 days due 
to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I 
have in addition to the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have 
decided to donate this fund to a on-governmental, or a non-religious, and or a non-profit 
organization or better still an Individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to 
instruct here in.

This gift, which comes from my husbands sweat to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, 
destitute, the downtrodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to 
be genuinely handicapped financially. It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took 
this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives 
are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband Jim Welsh hard earned money to 
be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will 
be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of 
death hence I know where I am going.

I know that I am going to be with the Almighty when I eventually pass on. The Almighty will fight 
my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to 
my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband relatives around me. I do not 
want 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 bank in Nigeria. I will also issue you a Letter of 
Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I 
lived a life worthy of emulation. 

Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in 
sourcing for a non-governmental, or a non-religious, and or a non-profit organization or better 
still an individual for this same purpose.   Please assure me that you will act just as I have 
stated herein.

Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and members of your family.


Best Regards,
Mrs. Sarah Welsh. (Benefactor)
