From:Lady Ruth Latsis
18-20 N.Nikodimou street, Athens,Greece.
Here writes Lady Ruth Latsis suffering from cancerous ailment. I am married to
Lord Silas Latsis,a Greek shipping tycoon notable for his great wealth,
influential extended family, and charitable activities all his life before his
Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without child.
My husband died after a protracted illness in April 17, 2005.
My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-
privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who can not help
themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament.
I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this
relationship, which never came.
When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 2.5 Million (2.5
Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his vast estates
and investment in capital market with his bank in United Kingdom and named me
as the beneficiary of this trust fund.
Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me
that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering
from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to
the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have
decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes
from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans,
destitute, the down- trodden, physically challenged children,barren-women and
persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.
It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this
decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my
husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my
husband's hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived
ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in a
worldly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision.
I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.. I do
not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating
health and because of the presence of my husbands relatives around me as i am
currently bedridden in the Family house here in 18-20 N.Nikodimou street,
do not receive any visitors unles approved by Thomas Lastis who is the
immediate younger brother to my late husband.
I do not want them to know about this development in order to safegurad this
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank in
UK. I will also authorise my Private Attorney in the UK whom i communicate
with via emils all the time,to issue a Letter of Authority that will empower
you as the new beneficiary of this fund,he would also endorse my WILL whre i
will name you as the beneficary of the 2.5 Million GBP.
My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please always be
knidhearted all through your life.
Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear
from you soon ,it is well with you and members of your family.you can contact
me through my private email address ONLY:
Lady Ruth Latsis
