FROM: Mrs. SUSAN MOMOH
E-MAIL ME WITH THIS E-mail address MY PRIVATE E-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Sir/ madam
I am Mrs.SUSAN MOMOH from Angola, presently staying in SOUTH AFRICA. I am
married to Mr. John Edward MOMOH who worked with Angolan embassy in Lome-Togo
for Ten years before he died in the year 2002.We were married for eleven
years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only
four days. Before his death we were both born again Christian.Since his
death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home
which the Bible is against.
When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $7.8Million (Seven
Million Eight hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with one security company in
Europe. Presently, this money is still with the Security Company. 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. I want
an organization or an individual that will use this fund for orphanages,
widows,propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God
The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. 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 husbands
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.
I 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'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 inform the security company in Europe
that you are the beneficiary of the said consignment you will need to go
and claim this fund in Europe.
I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present
beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the organization to always pray
for me because the lord is my shepherd. My 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 be prayerful all through your life.
Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for
this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated
herein. You can contact my doctor on his Email address email@example.com
his name is DR Peter Ken. Hoping to receive your reply and Remain blessed
in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
MRS. Susan Momoh.
