I am MRS DEBORAH JAMES from South Africa.I am married to Late MR DAVID JAMES of blessed memory who 
was an oil explorer in NIGERIA, RIVER STATE for fifteen years before he died in the year 2000.

We were married for twelve years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for 
only four days. Before his death we were both devoted to our God and respect other who serve him. 
Since his death, I too have been battling with both Cancer and fibroid problems. When my late 
Husband was alive he Deposited the sum of $18.5million (Eighteen Million, Five Hundred thousand U.S 
Dollars) with a Deposit Company in Europe.the money is deposited as Family Valuables/Treasure for 
security reasons. 

Recently, my doctor told me that I have only six months to live due to my cancer problem, and this 
lead to a stroke attack which bother me most though because I cannot move as I use to. Having known 
my condition I decided to entrust this fund to either a philanthropic organization or devoted 
individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instructs herein.30% of the 
US$18.5million goes to you to ensure that you are prepared for the task ahead, 60% of this money 
will be used in all sincerity to fund philanthropic organization, orphanages, widows and 5% will go 
to the family Attorney who will prepare the Authorisation and the balance 5% sent to me to at least 
prepare for my funeral and off-set my medical bills. 
I am taking this decision because I don't have any child or devoted relations whose behavior has 
left much to be desired while I am ill and above all I don't want a situation where this money will 
be used in an UnGodly manner,hence this bold decision.

Since my health is Retrogressing by the minute, you will have to send your POSTAL ADDRESS, CONTACT 
PHONE NUMBER AND FAX and a little details about yourself, because I got your address from the 
internet after a thorough search with the help of my pastor who pray and help me .
As soon as I receive this information from you I will make arrangement to prepare the Authorization 
through the family Attorney for you to get Possession of the Deposit. As soon as I receive your 
reply and the authorization is given to you by me, I will give you the name and contact of the 
Deposit company where the money was Deposited in Europe, for claims to the consignment.

Until I hear from you, I pray that this letter bring you and your family good tiding while my 
dreams to help humanity rest squarely on your shoulders.

May the Almighty God continue to guide and protect you. 

Remain Blessed,
