Dear Friend,
How are you today? My name is Mrs Patricia Roweth a Canadian
presently in the United Kingdom. I know we have not meet or had
earlier communication before now, so for the purpose of my intention
and request, let me start by telling you a little about myself. I was
born in the year 1940 in Orangeville, Ontario Canada. I received my
B.A. from Waterloo University College (which is now Wilfrid Laurier
University) in 1962. I had a long and successful career at McGill
where I ended up as full Professor in (1986).

I got married to late Williams Roweth in (1978) who was then a
private contractor with Steeplejack Services Group Canada, and was
later sent to work with Ghana Bauxite Company Ltd as an expatriate
for 10 years. He resigned from active duties in 2002 due to illness
and died in 2004. Though his death was a huge blow to me, having no
children, I have come to accept the fact that death is a price which
every man will have to pay one day.

After his death, I was left with the responsibility of managing his
estate, including entitlements He received from his work place. I
have tried my best in investing this fund, but sometimes when I
remember the fact that I have no children that will inherit these
estate or continue to manage it, I feel very sad. 
Two year ago I was diagnosed with Uterine Sarcoma cancer, though I
have being able to get the best medical attention,I keep going in and
out of hospital, of which presently am in London for a surgical
operation. In the past years, I have being in various charity and
voluntary project, I have donated funds to agencies in the Voluntary
sector, like the Positive Women organisation here in UK, the African
HIV Policy Network,the George House Trust, the Oasis North London. to
mention a few, though this donation has being on a small amount I
have tired my best to map out a strategy that will enable this group
receive this donation from my estate even after my death.

I want to reach more people in different countries but due to my
health I have not being able to do so, which is the reason I am
contacting you. I have decided to donate the sum of Six Million three
hundred thousand Dollars ($6,300,000.00) of my husband investment in
Ghana to you as my (Charity Coordinator) for the purpose of helping
mainly the widows, the local hospital and those suffering from HIV
AIDS in your town and city. Please I want you to consider this
task,and on your acceptance I will inform my family lawyer so that he
can arrange the release of the funds to you. For the purpose of this
course, you will be entity to  20% of the total fund for all logistic
and management effort from you. You will also have to work closely
with my attorney and give him your plans for the fund and update your
progress once the fund has being transfer ed to you. I have informed
my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund to charity, and on
your acceptance of this noble task He shall contact you. 

I want to thank you for taking your time to read my mail, while I
pray that you will consider this task for purpose and also put me in
your daily prayers. I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in
this matter until the task is accomplished,as I don,t want anything
that will Jeopardise my last wish or let pride and greed set in. If
