Dear Beloved submissions, Kindly, permit me to inform you of my predicament though I apologize for any inconveniences it might course you but I write you today based on the fact that my situation is deteriorating and I must not hesitate to confide in you. I am Mrs Cathrine Smiths from Great Britain. I am married to Mr.Jerry Smiths, who worked as a consultant in Monaco France for Twenty-Nine years before he died in the year 2004, and we were married for twenty years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for some days. Now, I have been sick since two (2) years,and recently my Doctor told me that the sickness is getting worst,that I may not last for the next Few months due to cancer problem and stroke sickness which disturbs me most,now that this sickness is getting worst,I have some amount of money which my husband and I deposited with the security finance firm/bank Worth of Three Million,Nine Hundred Thousand U.S.Dollars Only (US$3,9000.00) here in Europe. Having known my condition, I decided to use this money for charity, orphanages and widows,so that it will not be confiscated by the finance bank. If you are willing to help,I will give you 30% of the total amount and the remaing 70% you will use it for the work. As soon as I receive your reply I will prepare a change of ownership that will empower you as the new beneficiary of the said fund. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. You can also send your response through my e-mail address below: email@example.com Hoping to receive your reply and Remain blessed in the Lord. Yours in God, Mrs. Cathrine Smiths.
