My names are Rita Den Berg, I am a dying woman who had decided to donate what i have to the less privileged and charitable organizations in the world. I am 59 years of age and i was diagnosed for cancer about 5 Months ago, After the death of my husband, who worked for 15 years with an oil firm in Botswana before he died in 2005 and left me with everything he held because we didn't have a child of our own. I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to the less privileged and charity organizations in the world for the good work of God, rather than allow my relatives to use my husband's hard earned money for their selfish interest. I have asked God to forgive me of all my sins and believe he has because he is a merciful God. I have gone for more than four major operations since my illness started but still no improvement, I want you to pray for me because i will be going for another operation within the week, Pray that i survive the operation. I have decided to donate a reasonable amount of money to the less privileged and charity to improve the welfare, and to help the motherless, less privileged and also for the assistance of the widows. At the moment i can't take any telephone calls, Due to the fact that my relatives are always around me and i have been restricted by my doctor from taking calls because i deserve all the rest i can get. Presently i have informed my lawyer about my decision in assisting the less privileged and charity organizations. I wish you all the best and may the good God bless you and your family abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others. Kindly Contact my lawyer his names are Hansen Pietersen and his email: email@example.com if you are interested in assisting me with what i have asked of you, so that he can make all necessary arrangement and documentations stating that you are my legal beneficiary and also for the funds to be transferred to your proposed bank account before it will be distributed among the less privileged and charity organizations of your choice. I know we have never met but I have been directed by God to assist the less privileged and other charity organizations, and I hope you will assist me sincerely and with all your heart. Regards, Rita Den Berg
