Chelsea, SW3, England.
Here writes Madam Sharon David, suffering from cancerous ailment. I am
married to Engineer Silas David 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. My husband died after a
protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden
and the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who can not
help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can
adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship, which
When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 16 Million (Sixteen
Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling) which were derived from his vast
estates and investment in capital market with a 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
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 financially.
It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. 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 a situation where this money will be used
in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am
not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to
be with the Almighty when I eventually pass on.
The Almighty will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not need any
telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and
because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me. I do not 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 in
the UK. 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 always be prayerful all through your life. Please
assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from
you soon and God bless you and members of your family.
