Greetings of peace and love from Mrs. Johnson Dear beloved in Christ, After going through your profile, I decided to contact you personally for an assignment that requires trust. As a matter of fact I was pleased with the bit of information I gathered about you from the internet, which disclosed you as quite an honest person that one can trust in assignment of this nature. I am Mrs. Rebecca Johnson, a British citizen; I am 73 year's old now and a barring woman. I am a new Christian convert and have decided to make a free will donation through you. I was diagnosed with cancer of the liver some years back which has injured all my body and refused all forms of medication. According to my doctor he reported that my condition is critical that I might not survive. Although as a Christian, I believe in God and have faith that I shall not die, but will live to declare the glory of God. My late husband (Mr. Robert Johnson) was a custom officer before he died; he used his position in the office to loot people and took possession of their personal properties and converts them to his own personal possessions. Now my husband died without receiving God, without confessing his sins to God, without making peace with his relatives. Because of my husband÷Ő selfish interest and pomposity we were refused among his family member's. God did not give us a single child all through our marriage days till I lost my husband. I did every thing humanly possible to have a child but all effort was in vain, when I suggested of child adoption my husband did not support the idea. Our Lord in his mightiness is my only comforter. My reason of contacting you is based on my desire to make a free will donation. I have the sum of US$ 2. 6 Million, (Two million six hundred thousand US Dollars) the fund is presently deposited in a bank in Europe for security reasons and all the documents concerning the fund are in the custody of my lawyer. I inherited the money from my late husband. I have prayed concerning this donation for God÷Ő guidance and if in your heart you genuinely and faithfully desire-to use this fund for the propagation of God÷Ő work in any form whether for orphanage home, school for the destitute Church for evangelism or whatever you may have in mind that will be to the glory of God. I will like you to pray concerning this divine assignment and get in -touch with me through my private email via (email@example.com) for further arrangements with my lawyer on how you will receive my Charity donation. I know quite well that this assignment will disengage you from your personal activities and therefore you are entitled to 15% of the total sum, while 85% will be distributed to the less privileged ones and for charitable works. God bless you once again and as you receive, give and give God all the Glory. Remain blessed. Yours in the Lord Mrs. Rebecca Johnson.
