Madam Grace Wilson,
Here writes Madam Grace Wilson, suffering from cancerous ailment. I am
married to Sir David Wilson an Englishman who is dead. My husband was into
private practice all his life before his death. Our life together as man
and wife lasted for three decades without child.
I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this
relationship, which never came. When my late husband was alive he
dposited the sum of 2.45 Million (2.45 Million Great Britain Pounds
Sterling which were derived from his vast estates and investment in
capital market with his bank here in UK.Presently, this money is still
with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to
live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from.
Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the
cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have
decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which
comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers,
orphans, destitute, the down-trodden,physically challenged children,
barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped
I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit
this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons
and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused or invested
into ill perceived ventures. I do not want this money to be misused hence
the reason for taking this bold decision.
I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the
original beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I lived a life
worthy of emulation. Please assure me that you will act just as I have
stated Hope to hear from you as soon as possible through my private email
