From: "Mrs. Helga Blendynn" <email@example.com>

Subject: IN GOOD FAITH!!!!!
From: Mrs Helga Blendynn.
4 Churchill Avenue,
Here writes Mrs. Helga Blendynn, suffering from cancerous ailment. I am married to
Engineer Silas Blendynn 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
never came. When my late husband was alive he deposited 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 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 husbandâs hard earned
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, henc e 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 husbandâs relatives around me. I do not want them to know about
development. With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank in 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.you can contact me through my private email address:
Mrs. Helga H. Blendynn.
