Dear sir, firstname.lastname@example.orgI am Anita Amanta Alane from Ghana.I am married to Mr.Richard Alane who worked with South African embassy in Ghana for ten years before we left to East London where he was re-appointed as a navy officer before his untimely death in the year 2004.
We were married for Fifteen years without a child. He died in his home country south Africa after a brief illness that lasted for only four days Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $10.8M USD (Ten Million eight Hundred Thousand U.S.Dollars) in a security company in Ghana.
Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is the high blood preassure sickness.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church or individual that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor 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 efforts to be used by unbelievers.
I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. This is why I am taking this decision.I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. 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 hence the presence of my husband’s relatives were around me always. I don’t 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 my lawyer in Ghana. He will be contacting with you to give you all details and information of what to do for the claim of the money from the security company where my late husband deposits the money in a sealed metallic box. he will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this deposited box which will give you the right to stand and claim out the box from the security company .
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 worthy Christian.
Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.
Hoping to receive your reply. presently, I am still in my late husbands home country South Africa lying in the hospital bed.
email@example.com Remain blessed in the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mrs Anita Amanta Alane. _________________________________________________________________Play online games with your friends with MSN Messenger http://www.join.msn.com/messenger/overview
