            My beloved, Please respond urgently.<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
After going through your profile, I decided to contact you personally for an Assignment that requires trust. As a matter of fact I was pleased with the bit of information I gathered about you from the internet, which disclosed you as quite an honest person that one can trust in assignment of this nature.
I am Mrs. Edith Remedios, a British citizen; I am 67 year's old now and a barring woman. I am a new Christian convert and have decided to set up a foundation for charitable work through you. I want to distribute my free will donation through you.
I was diagnosed with cancer of the liver some years back which totally injured all my body and refused all forms of medication. According to my doctor he reported that my condition is critical that I might not survive. But as a Christian, I believe in God and have faith that I shall not die, but will live to declare the glory of God in this present life.
My late husband (Mr. Obed Remedios) who retired as a custom officer before he was retired from the office; he used his position in the office to loot people and took possession of some of their personal properties and converts them to his own personal belongings. Now, after acquiring all those wealth, my husband died without receiving God, without confessing his sins to God, without making peace with his relatives. Because of my husband selfish interest and pomposity we were refused among his family members.
Above all, God did not give us a single child all through our marriage days till I lost my husband three years ago. I did every thing humanly possible to have a child but all effort was in vain, when I suggested of child adoption my husband did not support the idea. Our Lord in his mightiness is my only comforter. Then I ask myself this question, what shall it profit a man to gain the entire word and loses his own soul, the answer is nothing.
My dear, this is exactly the reason why I am contacting you today, and my desire to make this free will donation through you, in fulfilments of my agreement with God. I am give back what my husband looted from people, and I am donating it for charitable work.
I have the sum of US$ 1.600, 000.00, (One million Six hundred thousand US Dollars) which I inherited from my let husband, the fund is presently deposited in a Security Company for safety reasons and all the documents concerning the fund are in the custody of my lawyer. I inherited the money from my late husband and will like to donate it for charitable work.
I have prayed concerning this donation for Gods guidance. And if in your heart you genuinely and faithfully desire to use this fund for the propagation of God work in any form whether for orphanage home, school for the destitute Church for evangelism or whatever you may have in mind that will be to the glory of God.
I will like you to pray concerning this divine assignment and get in touch with me through my private email via ( for further arrangements with my lawyer on how you will receive my Charity donation. I know quite well that this assignment will disengage you from your personal activities; therefore I have mapped out 20% of the total sum for you as your commission for the assignment, while 80% will be used for charitable works.
God bless you for your consideration to receive this seed of faith,
Yours in the Lord
Mrs. Edith Remedios.
