Name is Mrs Rosemary .C Ahmed I am a
dying woman who has decided to donate what I have to charity through
you.You may be wondering why I chose you. But someone has to be chosen.
am from Congo but because of the war in my country I run away I
am 52 years old and was diagnosed for cancer about 2 years ago,after
the death of my husband who had left me everything he worked for.I have
been touched by the Lord to donate from what I have inherited from my
late husband to charity through you for the good work of humanity,
rather than allow my relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds
inappropriately.I have asked the Lord to forgive me all my sins and I
believe he has,because He is merciful.I will be going in for an
operation,and I pray that I survive the operation.I have decided to
WILL/ Donate the sum of $15million (Fifteen Million Dollars to
charity through you for the good work of the Lord, and to help the
motherless, less privileged and also for the assistance of the
widows.At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls, due to the fact
that my relatives are around me and I have been restricted by my doctor
from taking telephone calls because I deserve all the rest I can get.
I have informed my consultant about my decision in WILLING this fund to
charity through you.I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless
you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the
good work to others.If you are interested in carrying out this task,i
will inform my consultant, so that he can arrange the release of the
funds to you. I know i have never met you but my mind tells me to do
this,and I hope you act sincerely.I decided that 35% of this money
should be taken by you from the total sum upon the sucess release of
this fund, because I am now too weak and frigile to do things myself
because of my cancer.
I will appreciate your utmost
confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished,as I
don't want anything that will Jeopardize my last wish, due to the fact
that I do not want relatives or family members standing in the way of
my last wish. Thank you,
Mrs Rosemary .C Ahmed.
PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR FULL NAME,ADDRESS,
TELEPHONE/ FAX NUMBER ON YOUR REPLY FOR EASY AND IMMEDIATE COMMUNICATION WITH MY LEGAL CONSULTANT
