Subject: Warm Greetings!
Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and May offend your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and writing through this channel.I got your contact from a professional database found in internet while searching for a reliable and honest person that will be an anointed steward in a vision very dear to me.
I am Mrs. Alice Morgan from Great Britain undergoing medical treatment. I am married to Mr. John Morgan who was a gun runner supplying arms and ammunition to warring factions in Africa 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. Since his after death, I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home.
When my late husband was alive he deposited large sum($23.5M USD) of money with a Fiduciary company .Presently ,this money is still with the Fiduciary Company. Recently, my doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my partial paralysis.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an organization or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want an organisation or individual that will use this to fund,women and youth groups, victims of war, environmental protection,charities, orphanages and widows . It is said that blessed is the hand that giveth.I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and as a part of restitution for the atrocities of my husband which I tacitly supported. I don't want a situation where this money will beused in an ungodly manner , hence the reason for taking this bold decision.I am not afraid of death, hence I know wh
ere I am going .I know that I am going to be in the bosom. If you consider yourself adequately equipped morally and spiritually for this mission, please ,respond by letting me know your decision to firstname.lastname@example.org
