Dear Good friend, I don’t really know who you are, but peace be unto you as you read this letter. My Instinct tells me that I can trust you by my proposition. I got your contact through internet directory and My Instinct directed me to send this money to you. I am a widow and a devoted Christian, my name is Mrs. Jean Brown from England. Since my husband died, I have been suffering from arthritics and lately doctors have diagnosed me with terminal cancer which left me with approximately twelve months to live. I am currently on wheelchair and being looked after by a nurse and some of my late husband’s relatives in turns. Before my husband died, he left some money to the tone of USD$ 4,800,000,00 (Four million, eight hundred thousand dollars) and he made me promised him that it should be used for humanitarian work, because we have no children and he does not want his brothers to lay hand on it, since they don’t believe in God, they have a different vision. This money is currently in a vault with a deposit company in EUROPE. If you will promise me that you will use this money to achieve the wish of my husband and me, then I will instruct the deposit company to release the content of the vault in your name. Note that I don’t speak much due to my illness; I will appreciate if we communicate through email. Reply me through my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org for us to discuss so that you can go and claim this money before i die. May God bless you as you walk in the light and glory. Thank you. Yours in Vineyard, Mrs. Jean Brown No virus found in this outgoing message Checked by PC Tools AntiVirus (188.8.131.52 - 10.081.003). http://www.pctools.com/free-antivirus/
