Dear Beloved In The Lord,
From: Mrs Alice Idris Toyo, Praise be to the name of God most high.
I am the above named person from Tunisia but now undergoing medical
I was married to Dr.Idris, who worked with Tunisia embassy in ABIDJAN
for nine years, before he died in the year 2002. We were both married
for eleven years without children.
My husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
Before his death we were both Christians and since his death I decided
not to re-marry.
When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of USD 6,500,000.00
(Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in
cash,packaged in bundles into a metalic box. Recently, my Doctor told me
that I would not last for the next Six months due to my cancer illness.
Having known my condition and believing the doctor I have decided to
donate this fund to avoid total loss to church, Less privilege, or
better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way
I am going to instruct herein.
I am interested in helping orphanages ,widows and propagating the Gospel
and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. Please do not fail to
spread the funds across the globe.
The Bible made us to understand that it is more blessed to give than to
receive. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will
inherit this money and my husband relatives are fighting over the
properties and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused
by their greedy attitude.
I don't 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 since I am a good christian. I know that I am
going to be in the bosom of the Lord. The bible says that the lord will
fight my case and I shall hold my peace.
I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my
health, and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me
always. I don't want them to know about this development. With God all
things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall issue a letter of authority to
the security company submit you as my late husband foriegn business
partner based on the agreement my late husband made with the security
company that any foriegner I the wife submit his details to the security
company as his foriegn business partner is whom the security company
will release the trunk box to.
Please if you are interested to help me recieve this consignment in your
country as my late husband's foreign business partner,kindly respond in
swift to enable me contact the Security company and submit your name for
the preparation of the shippment.
I will also send you the two deposit documents the security company gave
to my late husband on the day he deposited the trunk box so that you can
use the information on the documents to contact the security company.
I want you to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My
happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.
Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth.
Please always be prayerful all through your life.
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Alice Idris Toyo.
