FROM Mrs Angelina Lobi.
Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire
Dearest in the Lord.
am the above named person from South Africa. I am married to Mr.Mark
Lobi who worked with South African embassy in Ivory Coast for nine
years before he died in the year 2006. We were married for eleven years
without a child. He died after a brief illness,That lasted for only
Before his death we were both born again Christian.
Since his death I decided not to remarry or get achild outside my
matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was
alive he deposited the sum of $ 4.5 Million (four Million five hundred
thousand U.S.Dollars) in a security company here in Abidjan.
this money is still with the security company,I will give you their
contacts so that you will arrange for a meeting with them.I have
informed the security company that I will appoint somebody who will
come for the sake of the consignment for it's clearance from them
presently . I have a serious sickness that disturbs me so much.
known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or a
serious believer that will utilize this money the way I am going to
instruct I herein, want you to use this fund for orphanages,Widows,
propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is
maintained. The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand
that gives. I took this decision because I don't have any child
that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not
Christians and I don't want my husband efforts to be used by
unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be
used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision.
am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am
going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the
lord 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 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
security company here so that you will go there and clear the money. if
you wish to see the documents given to my husband as prove of the
deposit I will send it to you.I will also issue you an authority letter
which will be prepared by my lawyer here as awell which will prove that
you are the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church
to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd.
happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that
Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth.
Please always get back to me is urgent.
the amount is 4.5 millions us dollars
Mrs Angelina Lobi.
