Dear friend,
You are God sent.
married to Dr.Kazeem Barnes, who worked with an
embassy in WEST AFRICA 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
lasted for only four days.
Before his death we were both CHRISTIAN.Since his
death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside
my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my
late husband was alive he deposited the sum
of$8Million (Eight Million U.S. Dollars) with CENTRAL
BANK OF NIGERIA. Presently, this money is still under
the safe keeping of the Reserve bank . Recently, my
Doctor told me that I would not last for the next
three months due to my cancer problems. Though what
disturbs me most is my stroke . Having known my
condition, I decided to donate this fund to church or
better still a CHRISTIAN individual that will utilize
this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I
want a church that will use this fund on, orphanages
and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure
that the house of God is maintained.The Bible made us
to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I
took this decision because I don't have any child that
will inherit this money and my husband relatives are
not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard
earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't
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 in the bossom
of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that thelord will
fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need
any telephone communication in this regard because of
my health because of the presence of my husband's
relatives around me always. I don't want them to know
about this development.
With God all things arepossible.
As soon as I receive your reply I will forward your
personal information to CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA
so that they will contact you as the legal owner of
this fund before transfering the fund into your
nominated Bank Account in your country. I
will also issue you a letter of authority that will
empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund.
I want you and the church to always pray for me
because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that
I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that
wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and
truth. Please always be prayerful all through your
life. Please as sure me that you will act accordingly
as I stated here in. Hoping to hear from you as soon
as possible.
I need these items, NAME... ADDRESS..... TEL...
AGE... SEX..
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
