I am Mrs. Shelly Brown from Netherlands,I am 58 years old,i am suffering from a long time cancer of 
the breast which also affected my brain,from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating 
and it is quite 
obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that i may not live for the next two 
months,this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I was brought up from a 
motherless babies home was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child ,died in a 
fatal motor accident Before his death we were true  Christians.
Since his death I decided not to re-marry,I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the 
sum of $8.6million dollars with a Security Company.Presently, this money is still with them and the 
just wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for keeping it so long or 
rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can not come 
over because of my illness or they get it confisticated.
Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of 
the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few 
months to live.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any organisation of your choice and 
distributed each year among the charity organization,the poor and the motherless babies home where 
i come from.I want you God fearing, to also use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows,I 
took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time will soon be up.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security Company.I will also 
issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please 
assure me that you will act
accordingly as I stated herein. 
Hoping to hearing from you soon.
Waiting for your reply
Yours In Christ,
Mrs. Shelly Brown
