Dear ,I am Madam Valerie Augusto a nationality of Angola. I married to His Excellency Manuel Augusto, angola Ambassador in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. he died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before he death we were both born again Christians. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $8.5Million (Eight Million five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with a BANK here in COTE D' IVOIRE (IVORY COAST) Presently, this money is still with the bank.
Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next one year due to cancer problem. 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 to churches, orphanages, Research centers and widowspropagating 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 dont have any child that will inherit this money and my husband’s relatives are not Christians and I dont want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I dont 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 the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I dont need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health because of the presence of my family relatives around me always. I dont 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 pacific Finance/bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new 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. Any delay in your reply will give me room insourcing for a church or christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here. Hope to hear from you with this email address : email@example.com
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. Yours in Christ, Madam Valerie Augusto. _________________________________________________________________Ten : profite de ton Messenger en illimité sur ton mobile ! http://mobile.live.fr/messenger/ten/
