Subject: Greetings from Mrs. Janet Samuel,
Date: Fri, 4 Sep 2009 17:16:49 +0000 (13:16 EDT)
Greetings from Mrs. Janet Samuel,
am Mrs. Janet Samuel from Ivory Coast. I am married to Mr. Samuel Kwuwa
who worked with Ivory Coast embassy in Kuwait for nine years before he
died in the year 2005.We were married for nineteen years without a
child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my
matrimonial home. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum
of US$9.5million dollars in a Bank here in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire.
Presently, this money is still in bank.
Recently, my Doctor told me
that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem.
The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my
condition I decided to donate this fund to a person or organization
that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I
want this fund to be use for orphanages, widows, schools and
propagating the message of love to all mankind.
this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this
money, I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul. My husband
relatives are selfish, they refuse to distribute to charity
organization some amount of money which my late husband gave to them
for charity on the second day of his illness, and I don't want a
situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why
I am taking this decision.
I am not afraid of death hence
I know where I am going. I know that God will fight my case and I shall
hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard
because of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives
around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.
With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive
your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank here in Abidjan
Cote d'Ivoire. I will also issue you an authority letter that will
prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always
pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation.
always be prayerful all through your life. Contact me as soon as you
receive this e mail, any delay in your reply will give me room in
sourcing another person or organization for this same purpose. Please
assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein.
I hope to receive your reply.
God bless you
Mrs. Janet Samuel.
