Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,having known the 
truth,I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of 
God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God & his 
mercies and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs.Sheila Johnson the wife of Mr Harold Johnson,my husband worked 
with the Chevron/Texaco in Kenya for twenty years before he died in the 
year2001.We were married for ten years without a child.My Husband died 
after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

Before his death we were both born again Christians.

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 US$3.5M.(Three Million Five Hundred Thousand 
U.S.Dollars) with a Bank in Europe.Presently,this money is still with the 
Bank and the management
just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the 
release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody

to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Presently,I'm in a hospital in Kenya where I have been undergoing 
treatment for esophageal cancer.I have since lost my ability to talk and my

doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live.It is my last 
wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations anywhere in 
the World.Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my 
wealth since my illness,I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this 
huge responsibility to any of them.
Please,I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the 
Funds from the Bank.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund 
churches,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's 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 bosom of 
the Lord.

Exodus{14 VS14}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 soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives 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 my 
attorney who is in Europe as he will be the one to assist you in laying 
claims for this funds.

Kindly send your reply to my private email address which is as follows:

Your Sister in Christ,

Mrs.Sheila Johnson.
