Subject: Mrs Shulemmite Ikonne Waad
Dearest in Christ,
I am Mrs Shulemmite Ikonne Waad from Kuwait , I am married to Chief Pascal mohammed waad. He worked with KUWAIT embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2003. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
When my late Husband was alive he deposited the sum of $2,2millon. (two Millon Two hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) in a finance and security company here in Abidjan, he used my name as the benficiary to the money deposited. 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.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to the less privileged people and charity oganisation that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want you to use this fund for orphanages and widows. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will
inherit this money . 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.
If really interested in handling this project please do not waste time to contact me.
Contact me on this my private mail box: email@example.com
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Shulemmite Ikonne Waad.
