Dear Friend, Greetings in the name of the Lord, I am Mrs. Aliya Richard Abbott, nationality of Austria(Vienna). I am married to Dr.Richard Abbott of united state who worked with Hiroshima Gas Company as consultancy/contractors in central Africa for twenty years before he died in the year 2002.We were married for Fifteen years without a child. He died during one of the riot in the central Africa region . He was held hostage and slain to death by protesting youths of the region. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry. When my late husband was alive he made a numbered time (Fixed) deposited for twelve calendar months, valued at Three Million One Hundred United State Dollars (US$3,100,000.00) with a financial firm in Europe. Meanwhile, this money is still with the bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf Presently, I am with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested and proceed at the end of every year distributing items among charity organization. I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that gives.I took this decision because I know that there are a lot of poor people suffering from different kind of disease and nobody to come to their aid. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank where the funds is deposited and I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund. You will be entitled to 20%. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here in. Hoping to hearing from you soon. Please contact me through my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org Yours in Christ, Mrs. Aliya Richard Abbott.
