Dear beloved,
   I am Mrs. Merlon Mayrand from LONDON, I am 58 years old, I am deaf 
and suffering from a long time cancer of the breast which also affected
my brain. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and
my doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond the 
next two months, this is because the cancer stage has reached a 
critical stage. I was brought up in a motherless baby’s home, and was
married to my late husband for twenty years without a child. My husband
 and I 
are true Christians, but quite unfortunately, he died in a fatal motor 
   Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited 
belongings and deposited all the sum of $3.2million dollars with a 
Security Company. Presently, this money is still in their custody, and
management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward 
to receive the money after keeping it for so long or rather issue a 
letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I
not come over as a result of my illness, or they get it confiscated. 
Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been
treatment. 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 in any 
organisation of your choice and distributed each year among the charity
organization, the poor and the motherless baby’s home where I come
 from. I 
want your good humanitarian, to also use this money to fund churches, 
orphanages and widows around. I must let you know that this was a very 
hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because
I have no further option. I hope you will help see my last wishes come 
  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 which
prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds. Please assure me 
that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hope to hear from you
Awaiting your reply
Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Merlon Mayrand
