Dearly Beloved,
It is by his grace of that I received GOD, 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's mercy and glory upon my life. I am Mrs. Martina Wilson the wife of Mr. Harry Wilson, my 
husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Burundi for twenty years before he died in the year 
2001.We were married for twenty-seven 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 our lord 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 security firm in Europe.

Presently, this money is still with the firm 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 cannot come over.
Presently, I'm in a hospital in Burundi 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 any where 
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 orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and also assist 
the tsunami victims. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this 
money and my husband relatives are not GOD fearing 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. 
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 and i don't want them to know about this development.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of Attorney who is in Europe as he 
will be the one to assist you in laying claims for these funds.
Yours in the sincerely,
Martina Wilson
