Greetings Beloved, Greetings in the name of our lord Jesus I am Mrs.Evangelist Rosemary Collins, widow to late Mr.Smith Collins, I am 68years old, I am a new Christian convert suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live for more than two months according to my doctors.This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don't want your pity but I need your trust. My late husband was killed during the U.S.raid against terrorism in AFGHANISTAN, and during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband and I were Very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. The doctor has advised me that I will not live for more than two months, so I have now decided to spread all my wealth, to contribute mainly to the development of church, Muslim society, charity/under privileged in Africa, America, Asia and Europe.

I found your e-mail address in the web Directory and I have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail Offensive, you can ignore it and please accept my apology. Before my late husband died he was a major oil tycoon, and deposited the sum of USD $12,000,000.00 in a Security company some years ago, that all I have left now, I need you to collect this fund and distribute it yourself to church, Muslim soceity, charity/unprivileged. I was into charity organization before this illness come to stricken me down in hospital. I came to understand that money acquisition without God is vanity. The funds will be entirely in your trusted hands and management. I hope God gives you the wisdom to touch many lives, which is my main concern.30% of this money will be for your time and effort, while 70% goes to charity.
