My Dearest In Christ, Calvalry Greetings To You, By way of introduction, I am Mrs Linda Egobia, I was born in the year 1968,I was living in Deira in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. But i have relocated to Africa because of My husband people, they want to kill me because of his peroperty.I got your contact information while browsing the internet in search of a reliable person/company who will assist me. My late Husband was killed by his business associate in 2001,and during the period I married we had a son which both of them were also killed in cold blood a year later,I'm now afraid of showing myself out to them (Business associates including members of my family) as all are trying to deny and kill me too, This is because after the death of my Husband, I inherited all his business and wealth.I was a Gold dealer in Deira "GOLD SOUK" meaning gold marketer in Arabic language. Presently, I am suffering from long time cancer of the Breast. From all indications, my condition is really deteriorating and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very Severe stage. Infact, my personal physician told me that I may not live for more than six months and I am so scared about this. So, I now decided to divide part of this wealth,by contributing to the well beign of less privileged people and handicapped in the society of Asian,which is in my place, America, Europe and African Countries. This mission, which will no doubt be tasking had made me to recently relocate from my family house to Africa where I live presently due to the pressue my family members are giving me as they want to share the fund within themselves which i don't want. I selected you for this Purpose and prayed over it. At first, i did not know how to put up this request for asistance because I have been recieving emails from Africa soliciting my help in accomodating huge sums of dollars for them. I recive an average of 5 letters everyday. I suspect them to be scam from Africa. I feel I can trust you and I am willing to donate the sum of $11,300,000.00 Million US Dollars to you for the development of the well being of handicapped in the society and providing low cost homes/houses for them and also as aids for the less-privileged around your country,and I have mapped out $1,300,000.00 for your own personal use to help me for this work. Please note that, this fund is currently deposited with a Finance organisation.I will file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in your name. Please,do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use,than enhancement of the comfort of the handicapped, providing for the less previledged ones Lastly, I want you/your home to be praying for me as regards my entire life and my health because I have come to find out since my spiritual birth lately that wealth acquisition with out God, one's life is vanity upon vanity. I await your urgent reply. Remain blessed! Mrs Linda Egobia
