For sure this mail would definitely come to you as a surprise, but do take your good time to painstakingly go through it before disposing it, as I mean well.
ln brief introduction, l am Mrs Jean bridggie Arizapa a nationality of Philippine . I am married to Mr. Chima Arizapa who worked with Filipino embassy in Cote d'ivoire for nine years before he died in the year 2001. We were married for eleven years without a child. he died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were living together in good harmony. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of USD$6.5Million (Six Million Five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) in one of good security company here in COTE D' IVOIRE .Presently, this money is still with the security 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 stroke.Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to Orphanage (less privileges) or to an individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here according to my desire. I needed good partner that will use this fund for the helping orphanages,Research centres and widows.I took this decision because I don,t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband,s relatives are not good and never loved me for once through out my marriage experience with my late husband. therefor,I don,t want my family hard earned money to be misused by wicked men. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.
I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health as my Medical Doctor advised and because of the presence of my family relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company who will assist you and work with you concerning the deposited money in the security company.
I want you to always pray for me, My happiness is that I lived a life of a aged mother and worthy Christian. Any delay in your reply will give me room in looking for contact for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act Accordingly as I stated here.
Mrs Jean-bridggie Arizapa
