Dearly Beloved,

Please read this slowly and carefully, as it may be one of the most
 important emails you ever get.I am Mrs Mercy O'Connor, I was married to Late
 Mr Eric O'Connor.He used to work with Shell Petroleum Development Company
 London and was also a seasoned contractor in the West African
 Region.He died on Monday,31 July, 2003 in Paris.
We were married for seven years without a child.
After his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my
 matrimonial home.When my late husband was alive,he deposited the sum of
 GBP 5.2 Million in a bank in London,which is now wasting and languishing
 there. My Doctor told me that I would not last long due to my
 complicated health issues,I have cancer.Having known my condition I decided to
 donate this funds to better the lives of the less privileged.I need an
 honest and trust worthy individual that will utilize this money in
 accordance with my instruction.I want the funds to be used in funding
 religious organizations,orphanages and less privileged ropagating the word of
I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit
 this money and my husband's relatives are very unkind to me and I don't
 want my husband's hard earned money to be misused.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. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the
 contact of the Bank,and my Attorney in London.For legitimacy,he will
 also issue you a letter of authorization that will empower you as the
 original-beneficiary of this fund.
I want you to always pray for me,Any delay in your reply will give me
 room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose.If you are
 not interested,kindly pardon me for contacting you. You can reach me
 with my alternate email address(
