I am Mrs.Rita Gilbert,the wife of Mr.Sam  Gilbert,both of us, are citizens of the United states of 
America. my husband  worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Russia for twenty years before he died in 
the year2003.We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness 
that lasted for only four days. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of (7.5 Million 
Pounds)  with a Bank in Europe Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just 
wrote me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANT and if I, as the beneficiary of the 
funds, do not re-activate the account; the funds will be CONFISCATED or I rather issue a letter of 
authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf (note that you need to activate this account) 
as I can not come over. Presently, I'm in a hospital in Russia where I have been undergoing 
treatment for esophageal cancer I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand-in as the beneficiary 
and collect the Funds from he Bank.i want a person that is God-fearing who will use this money to 
fund churches,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. I don't want them to know about this 
development.Please reach me on my private
