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 just 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. Mary Parker, the wife of Mr. Robert Parker, my husband worked
with the Chevron/Texaco in United Kingdom for twenty years before he died
in the year 2003. 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 both got born-again and dedicated Christians. Since his death
I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which
the Bible is strongly against.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of  17.5 Million
(Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds) with a Bank in United
Kingdom. Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management
just wrote me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANTand if
I, as the beneficiary of the funds, do not re-activate the account; the
funds will be CONFISCATED or I rather issue a letter of authorization to
somebody to receive it on my behalf (note that you need to activate this
account) as I can not come over.

Presently, I'm in a hospital in the UK 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, Please, I beg you in the name of
God to help me Stand-in as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the
Bank. I want a person that is God-fearing who 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 since I
know where I am going to.

I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. {Exodus14 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.Awaiting your urgent reply via my

With God all things are possible.
Your Sister in Christ,

Mrs. Mary Parker
