Dearest in Christ, I need your help. Calvary greeting to you and your family. My name is Mrs Rita Williams, a scottish, but I am married to Mr John Williams who is the Managing Director of Shell Petro-Chemical Company, before he died in the plane crash of Oct 23, 2005 [with Bellview Airlines twin-engine Boeing 737] with other passengers aboard all 117 passage died, as you can confirm it yourself through this web sitehttp://edition.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/africa/10/23/nigeria.plane/ http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/23/AR2005102300368.html We were married for eleven years without a child. Before he death we were both born again Christians. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of USD$6.5Million (Six Million Five hundred thosand U.S. Dollars) with one of good bank here in Nigeria. Presently, this money is still with Union Bank of Nigeria. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church that will use this fund to churches, orphanages, Research centres and widows propagating the word of God and to ensured that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don;t want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. 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. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health because of the presence of my family relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply Ishall give you the contact information of the bank and whom to contact. I will also need to get a reliable attorney to assist you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act Accordingly as I stated here. Expecting to hearing from you, reply back to my alternative email for security purpose firstname.lastname@example.org Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. Yours in Christ, Sister Rita Williams.
