From: Mrs. Babara Irene Hanff, Mutual Trust Greetings to you, I am the above named person undergoing medical treatment now. I was married to Dr. Peter Hanff who worked with erithean Embassy in Poland as a diplomat and a bussiness man for over 6 years before his untimely death in the year December 2004 We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home, which my religion is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of$20 Million (twenty million U.S. Dollars) with one finance/security office in Europe. Presently, this money is still with the Security/ Finance Company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a foundation or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want an individual that will use this to fund missions, orphanages and widows and other good charity deeds The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husbands 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 VS 14 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 health, and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/Security Company Europe. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. 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. Understand that we must keep this contact secret as possible that way we can be focused on the fact that you have claimed the money successfully and commence on what we have discussed Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a reliable individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Please reply me through my private email:email@example.com Remain blessed Mrs. Babara Irene Hanff
