From Mrs. Mariam cassidy.
Dearest in christ.
My name is Mrs. Mariam cassidy. a nationality of Kuwait. I am married to
late Mr. James cassidy who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for
nine years before he died in the year Octorber 2003. We were married for
twenty years with a child. He died after a the illness that lasted for
long four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. When
my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $12Million (twelve
Million U.S. Dollars) with one of good banks here in
Cote d'Ivoire .
Presently, this money is still with the bank. Recently my Doctor told me
that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problem.
Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I
decided to donate this fund to church or better still a Christian
individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct
I want a person or church that will use this fund to churches,
orphanages, research centres and widows propagating the word of God and
ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to
understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision
because I have a child that will inherit this money but my son can not
carryout this work only because i and my late husband decide to use some
of the money to work for God and live some for our son to have a
better live. our son is just 17years old now and been grow up in africa,
he has low manterity and my husband´s relatives are not Christians and I
don´t want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I
don´t 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 to. 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 want your telephone
communication in this regard because of my health and due to the presence
of my family relatives around me always .call me or my son his name is
George, with this our Telephone number is +22507673852, Immediately you
recievd this message. I don´t want any of my husband family relatives to
recieve this money. With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
Finance/bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will
empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church
to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is
that I live 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 for a church or Christian
individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act
accordingly as I stated here.
Expecting to hearing from you on this private mailbox
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Mrs Mariam cassidy.
