Dear Beloved, It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the truth; I had no choice than to do what is lawful and just in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God & His Mercies and glory upon my life. I am Mrs. Mary Parker,the wife of Mr.Robert Parker,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 year 2003.We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness. Before his death we both got born-again as dedicated Christians. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 7.5 Million Pounds (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds) with a Bank in Europe. 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). Presently, I'm in an hospital in Russia undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand-in as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that is God-fearing who will use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of God. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision, I know that I am going to be in the bossom of the Lord. Please my beloved for further communication, reach me on my private email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Remain Blessed Your Sister in Christ, Mrs. Mary Parker
