Dear Friend,

My name is Mrs.MARY,J ,MENSAH, I am a dying woman who
has decided to donate what I have to charity through
you.You may be won
dering why I chose you. But someone
has to be chosen. 

I am 59 years old and was diagnosed for cancer about 2
years ago,after the death of my husband who had left
me everything he worked for.I have been touched by the
Lord to donate from what I have inherited from my late
husband to charity through you for the good work of
humanity,rather than allow my relatives to use my
husband's hard earned funds inappropriately.

I have asked the Lord to forgive me all my sins and I
believe he has,because He is merciful. I will be going
in for an operation,and I pray that I survive the
operation.I have decided to WILL/Donate the sum of
$5milliom(Five Million Dollars)to charity through
you for the good work of the Lord, and to help the
motherless,less privileged and also for the assistance
of the widows.At the moment I cannot take any
telephone calls, due to the fact that my relatives are
around me and I have been restricted by my doctor from
taking telephone calls because I deserve all the rest
I can get.

Presently,I have informed my consultant about my
decision in WILLING this fund to charity through you.
I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless
you abundantly, and please use the funds well and
always extend the good work to others.If you are
interested in carrying out this task,i will inform my
consultant, so that he can arrange the release of the
funds to you. I know i have never met you but my mind
tells me to do this,and I hope you act sincerely.I
decided that 35% of this money should be taken by you
from the total sum upon the sucess release of this
fund, because I am now too weak and frigile to do
things myself because of my cancer.

NB:I sincerely know that a lot has been written about
some SCAM coming out of the world,but I assure you
that this will never in any way associated with that
as you will be given the right to verify this directly
with the the finance company where the fund was

I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this
matter until the task is accomplished,as I don't want
anything that will Jeopardize my last wish, due to the
fact that I do not want relatives or family members
standing in the way of my last wish. 
For security reason: kindly reply to this email

Your sincerely,

mary, john, mensah
