 Dear friend,
 I am the above named person but now undergoing medical treatment in
London, England. I worked with British Railway Commission in Norwich for
over a decade I married for fifteen years without a child. my wife died
after a brief illness that lasted for two weeks.I vow to use my wealth for
the down trodden and the less privileged in the society. Since the doctor
had comfermed my situation that I will not live long I have decided to give
out my money to the poor.
 I deposited the sum of 18 Million (Eighteen Million Pounds sterling) in a
Vault with a Bank .Presently, this money is still there. Recently,my Doctor
told me that I would not last for the next 150 days due to cancer 
problem.Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition
I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing
person who will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. 
I want an individual that will use this to fund and provide succor to poor
and indigent persons, orphanages, and above all those affected in the
Tsunami in far Asia and the Hurricane Katrina Disasters.
 I understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision
because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my
relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my hard
 earned money to be misused or spent in the manner I will not like and I
also do not 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 Almighty.I do not need any telephone
communication in this regard because of my health, and because of the
presence of my relatives around me always. I do not want them to know about
this development. With God all things are possible.
 As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank .
I will also issue them a letter of authority and change of ownership
certificate,that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this
fund,through my Lawyer. I want you to always pray for me. My happiness is
that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Whosoever that wants to serve the
Almighty must serve him with all his heart and mind and soul and also in
Please always be prayerful all through your life.Any delay in your reply
will give me room in sourcing for an individual for this same purpose. 
Please assure me that you will act according to my specification 
herein.Hoping to hear from you. at my private email (
Thank you and may the Almighty bless you.
Yours sincerely,
Mr Bradon Franklin.
