Subject: From Mrs Rose Young.
>From Mrs Rose Young.Centre DImagerie Medicale Lot 1423 Haie ViveCotonou - Benin Republic . Dearest One, It is with tears and pains that I write you this mail from my sick bed. I am in a hospital just reaching through my laptop. My dear, pray that you never met such a condition before in your life. My name is Mrs.Rose Young, widow to late Mr.Young Benson, former owner of BENDUKE PETROLEUM AND GAS Company Benin Republic. I am 61years old I have bee suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live more than 3 months according to my doctors advice after my last autopsy result. He have asked me to be strong in spirit and prepare my Will if I have not because the cancer has gotten to a very bad stage which has destroyed all my immune systems and my chances of surviving is very tiny. As it is, I prefer dieing than keep on suffering in this condition. I don't want your pity me anyway, but I need your trust. My late husband died on July 17th 2006 and during the period of our marriage we were only able to have a child, who died at the age of 19 in a car accident on his way back to university. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. But his wicked brothers who till tomorrow I suspects as the killers of my late husband will never allow me be. My husband died as a result of an evil attack. I would not like to go into that now. Months after while I was still suffering from my sickness and mourning my husband, his wicked family greedily forcefully collected everything from me telling me that tradition of the land is that they are the inheritors of their late brothers wealth, since he has no child I, so there late brothers wealth is for them. The only thing I kept from them is a deposit of some funds deposited by my late husband with a finance firm, which I kept the papers in a safe place. Base on my doctor advise I have decided to use this money to contribute mainly to the development of charity in America ,Africa, Asia and Europe , instead of leaving it for people who wants me dead at all cost. It will be meaningful to the poor people who need helps and who will value it than wicked people who their minds are full of evil. I am sure God will be happy seeing me do this. I am convince that you will be capable of handling this noble task, this is why I have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive or believe that you can not handle it, kindly inform me or ignore it and please accept my apologies. As I said, before the death of my husband he was a major oil tycoon in Benin and other African countries. He deposited the sum of US$16,000,000.00 (sixteen Million Dollars only) with a finance firm. I need your help to collect this fund and distribute it yourself to charity homes. Search for the poor ones in the society, those who have no one to fend for them. Visit hospitals many are dieing because of money to pay for hospital charges. I have seen a lot of things the whole while I have been here in this hospital. People are suffering in this life. I am doing this so that when I die my soul will rest in peace. The funds will be entirely in yours hands and management hope God gives you the wisdom to touch very many lives that are my main concern and wish. You will have 25% of this fund for yourself so that you will feel comfortable to offer this noble service to those who deserves it. 70% goes to charity and 5% you will use to cover up any form of expense you may make while getting this money. May God bless you and your family.
Mrs Rose Young.
