Dear Beloved, As you read this mail,my desire is that You find a Place in Your Heart to assist me in fulfilling My Late Husband's Last Wish/will.I am Mrs. Mariam Assal from Lebanon.My husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Russia for twenty years before he died in the year 2003. Presently,I am in a hospital in the Northern Ireland undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer and recently,My Doctor told me that I have a very short time to live due to this Health problem but what disturbs me most though,is the stroke I had recently. I and My Husband were married for fifteen years without a child.He died after a brief illness that lasted for Six weeks.Before his death,he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden and the less privileged in the society.And since his death,I have been trying to get someone I can trust to help me execute his wish,hence my sending you this mail. When my late husband was alive,he made a Huge Cash Deposit totalling US$12,500,000,00 (Twelve Million,Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which was concealed in a Diplomatic Box and Lodged with a Security Company abroad as Family Valuables and no one knows of this huge cash deposit till Date. Having known my condition,I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money in the way I am going to instruct herein.Furthermore,because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my Late Husband's wealth since my illness,Please,I beg you to help me stand as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Finance and Security Company in United Kingdom.I want You to take Custody of the fund and use it for Charity Works as I have any child that will inherit this money. As soon as I receive Your response comfirming Your acceptance to act on My behalf to Claim these Deposit,I shall furnish You relevant information thereto,which will authorise the Release of these Funds to You as my duly assigned Representative.Please,for further communication on how we are going to conclude this,reach me on my private mail: email@example.com Please,do note that time is of essence due to my present Health Condition and as such,I appeal that prompt action needs to be taken so that this Deposit can be released while am still Present. Regards, Mrs. Mariam Assal.
