Dear Friend, My name is Deaconess Rosilyn Dyer, a Briton by origin, but married to a Welsh, Mr. James Dyer who lost his life while on a boat cruise last year. My husband was a shipping magnate. We were married for eleven years with a son who was on the same boat mishap with my late Husband. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Eight Million pounds sterling in a finance house here in England.Presently this money is still with the Financial Institution. I have been undergoing severe trauma since the demise of my husband and son. Life no longer has any meaning to me. I have decided to donate this fund to an individual,or group that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.I want an individual,or group that will establish 'JAMES DYER FOUNDATION' to assist widows and help accident victims worldwide. I took this decision because my husband's relatives are Trouble Makers and I don't want my husband's efforts to be used for trivialties.I do not want a situation where my husband's sweat will be used in material pursuits. This is why I am taking this decision. I cannot give this fund to anybody here in England because my Husband relatives have people in high places and will frustrate all attempts within this country. Moreso they do not know about this Eight Million pounds sterling deposit that my husband made. Presently, this deposit is known by I, our family lawyer and now you. Contact our family lawyer with this specified email address: Barrister Timothy peggy Esq. Email: email@example.com Let him know that I am entrusting the 8,000,000 pounds sterling to you by quoting my personal reference number Law/chamber/solicitors/rs/dy/WILL/9577568367 and I have also notified him that I am WILLING that amount to you for a specific and good work. Please i need assurance from you that you will act accordingly as I have stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply. Remain blessed. Your Sister, Deaconess Rosilyn Dyer
