Dear Friend

Greetings in the name of God Pls let this not sound strange to you for my only surviving lawyer who 
would have done this died early this year. I prayed and got your email id from your countries 
Christian guestbook which i have been with my late husband and liked to visit once more if God will 
in his infinite mercies.

I am Mrs. Joy Hoffman from Kuwait, I am 68 years old, I am deaf and suffering from a long time 
cancer of the breast which also affected my brain, from all indication my conditions is really 
deteriorating and it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that I may 
not live for the next two months, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. 
I was brought up from a motherless babies home was married to my late husband for twenty years 
without a child, my husband died in a fatal motor accident Before his death we were true Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the 
sum of US$5.6Million dollars with a Security Firm. Presently, this money is still with them and the 
management just wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for keeping it so 
long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can 
not come over because of my illness or they get it confisticated.

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital here in Mauella Hospital Germany where I have been 
undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. My doctors have told me that I have only a few months 
to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice 
and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless babies' home.

I want you as God fearing person, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows, I 
took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time will so on be up.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security Firm. I will also 
issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please 
assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

Please reply me through this my private email address: mrsjoyhoffman07@yahoo.com.hk

hoping to hear from you soon,Waiting for your reply

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Joy Hoffman
