Dearly Beloved in Christ.
greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am Mrs. Victoria
Balli, I am a nationality of the United Kingdom, and I am presently
hospitalized, due to my illness. I am 59 years old and I was
diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer for about two years. I am a widow to
Late Mr. William Balli. You see, my husband was once the Managing
Director of Shell Oil Company in South Africa, where we spent most of
our lives and I have served the Lord all through my life.
all indications, my condition is serious and is quite obvious that I
may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten
to a very severe state and my doctor has told me this. The one that
disturbs me most is the stroke that paralyzed half of my body before my
late husband was killed during his reign as the Managing Director of
Shell Oil Company.
My late husband was wealthy and after
his death, I inherited all His business and wealth. Presently my doctor
told me that I may not live for more than six months, though I am not
scared about this, I am not afraid of death, hence I will be in the
bosom of the Lord forever, any time my God calls me home. So, I now
decided to look for an organization or an individual who is God
fearing, that will use the funds for charity organization, by
contributing to the development of evangelism in the world, assisting
motherless babies homes and poor churches all over the world.
selected you after searching the Internet for this purpose and prayed
over it, for the fact that I always go to God in prayers in situation
like this, because He is the Alfa and Omega. I am willing to donate
half of my husbands wealth to you for the development of evangelism and
also as aids for the less privileged around you rather than allow my
husbands relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. You may
contact my lawyer, James Cole, with the specified address-:

that you copy this correspondence to his email address above and tell
him that I have asked you to reach him. Please, do not reply if you
have the intention of using this fund for personal use, you will have a
reasonable percentage of the total funds before investing the remainder
of the funds for God`s works. Lastly, I want you and your church to
keep praying for me regarding my health, because I have come to find
out that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life, is
vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I
will give you the crown of life. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus
Christ, the love of God, and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be
with you now and forever more, amen.
Goodluck in all your future endeavors and God bless you.
Mrs. Victoria Balli.
