Emily Olivier Jackson


A new slant, but it's still fraud.

Look at the e-mail addresses in the mail. It was to undisclosed-recipients and the return address was at Pull the other one. I also got three so the crook is probably desperate.

One out of five.

I am sure this mail would be coming to you as a surprise since we have never met before and you would also be asking why I have decided to chose you amongs the numerous internet users in the world, precisely I cannot say why I have chosen you but do not be worried for I come in peace and something very positive is about to happen to your life right now and to the lives of others through you if only you can carefully read and digest the message below. The internet has made the world a global village where you can reach anybody you have not met before.

Before I move further, permit me to give you a little of my biography,I am Mother Emily Olivier, 87 Years old woman and the wife of Late Sir Jackman Olivier who died in a Plane crash on Monday the 7th of September 1998 GMT
14:22 UK while they were flying from New York to Geneva.Please see site below for more information.

After the death of my husband I became the Head of his investment and now that I am old and weak I have decided to spend the rest of my life with my family and loved ones whom I never had time for during the course of my business life, but before the death of my husband we had a plan to use the last days of our lives to donate half of what we have worked for to the less

privilege and charity homes and the other half for ourselves, family members and close friends, and it is so unfortunate that my husband is not alive today to do this with me and I am very weak and old now, hence I have decided to do this philanthropic work on behalf of my late husband and I.

Presently, I have willed out almost half of our assets to several charity homes and to some of the less privilege in different countries.

Despite the agreement between my late husband and I to give aid to the deprived, we also agreed to render support to an individual we have not meet before in life due to the fact when we were still young in life we receive an anonymous help from an individual we did not know and which we have not being able to know till date, the impact we got from such gesture made us to do same.

I am sorry to inform you that you will never have the chance to know me because I have just concluded the assignment which my husband and I have agreed upon before his sudden death and you happened to be the beneficiary of our last WILL, irrespective of your previous financial status, hence I need you to do me a favor by accepting our offer that will cost you nothing.

I have presently deposited a Cheque in the sum of £ 5,800,000.00 British Pound with FedEx express to deliver to you, what you have to do now is to contact the FedEx COURIER SERVICE as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date.

For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge,Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.

You have to contact the FedEx COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your cheque with this information bellow; Contact Person: Mr. Mark Robbins Email

Again, you are not to pay for the delivering Charge, the Insurance premium and the Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque because I have already paid for them, the only money you are expected to pay is £255.34 British Pounds for the security keeping of the cheque so far.

I would have paid the fee but the company insisted that I should not because they don't know when you will be contacting them and to avoid demurrage or further cost.

You are to reconfirm the below information to them to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address.

Postal address;
Full Names:
Direct telephone number;

Below is the security keeping code: (SCT/0433/F) of you draft, you are to also present it to them for verification before delivery.

Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to ask them to provide you with the method they wish to use in receiving their security keeping fee of £
255.34 British Pounds for their immediate action.

Note: Please I do not want you to thank me or my husband all I need you to do is to invest wisely with it and do the same good to someone?s life someday as this is the only way this world would be a better community if we render selfless services to one another.

Be also notified that I will no longer be reading my emails or surfing the internet as I have retired completely from the outside world to my ranch, at this moment I have nothing to do with cars, emails and other luxuries, all further correspondence should be forwarded to the courier company for the delivery of your cheque to you..

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Emily Olivier Jackman

One out of five.

DR.Felix Ford,


I am DR. Felix S. Ford a director in the project and planning department of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), I head a seven man Tenders Board Committee in charge of contract award and Payment approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account.

There were series of contracts executed by a consortium of Multinationals in the oil industry in favour of the (NNPC) among which were;

1) The expansion of Pipeline network within Nigeria for crude oil and downstream products distribution and subsequent evacuation - US$2 Billion.

2) Contract for Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of various Refineries in the country.

3) The construction of Storage Tanks for Petroleum Product (Depots)-US$94 Million.

The original value of of these contracts were deliberately over invoiced in the sum of Twenty Five million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars US$25,500,000.00) which has recently been approved and now ready to be transferred. However the companies that actually executed the aforementioned contract have been fully paid and the projects officially commissioned.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount into your account for subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed amongst ourselves to offer you 15% of the transferred sum, 5% shall be set aside for any incidental expenses during the course of this transaction, you will then be mandated to revert the balance to us in due course.

You must however NOTE that this transaction is subject to the following terms and conditions; our conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence, that you must accord this transaction with utmost confidentiality and secrecy.

Modalities have been worked out at the highest levels of the Ministry 0f Finance, Central Bank of Nigeria and the Presidential Task Force on Contract Payment for the immediate remittance of the funds within 10 - 14 working days subject to your satisfaction of the above terms.

Our assurance is that your role shall be totally risk free. To accord this transaction the legality it deserves, and for mutual security of funds, the whole procedures shall be legally processed with your name or any company you may nominate as the bona fide final beneficiary.

Once more, I want you to understand that having put in over 20 years in the Civil Service of my country, I am very much averse to having my image and career dented. This matter should therefore be treated with utmost secrecy and urgency. Kindly expedite immediate action as we are well behind schedule to enable us include this transfer in the second batch of the 2001 fiscal year contract payments.


Dr. Felix Ford.

Letisha Aisha


Fraud and a God-tosser.

One out of five.

My name is Miss Letisha Aisha from Sierra leone and medical.dear I,m interesting to know more of you after seeing your email details here on the Internet as i want to relocate to your area for living and invest of my inheritance fund.

I know there is no violent and crisis in your country and that lead to my contact with you as i want to reside there.

I have contacted you before and no response or reply from you and wondering if you got early message i sent to you, please let me know if you receive this one again it by writting to my email below, please get back to me confirming the receipt of this message.

All i need from you is to help us get the total money transfered into your account for investment once we change the beneficiary in your name and favour as the person we authorise and empower for the clearance .

You know there is a lot of bad people on the internet and am being afraid not to fall into the hand of a person that will betray me or run away with my fund once the fund is transfered.

I prayed and fasted before contacting you. Am trusting you, though without seeing you which my younger brother has been asking me, why should i trust a complete stranger over transfer of our huge sum of money but i told him i strongly believe in God and it is by God direction that made me to contact you and reveal all our position here in Benin.

As i told you earlier, am here in Benin Republic with my younger brother which we arrived 3 days now because of the war in Ivory Coast that lead to the death of my father ad mother living me and my younger brother alive and we are from Sierra leone and lives in a country called Abidjan - Cote d'Ivoire but here in Benin Republic we entered as a result of the war in that country which lead to the death of my father and mother living me and my younger brother alone on earth.

Before the death of my father he deposit the sum of $9.5 MILLION DOLLARS IN FINANCE COMPANY HERE IN BENIN REPUBLIC which am standing as the bonafide bext of kin .

When I came here, i went to the finance company to know what is required to release our fund to us. They stated that my late father deposited the fund for safe keeping in their central security vault and we need get the legal transfer document before the amount can be release for transfered to any account we are going to nominate which will be yours as we do not have any bank account at all and want you to help us get account where the fund will be transfered once we issue the change of power of attorney in your name and favour as the person authorise to help us clear and receive our fund.

Am pleading to you to assist us here with the bank so that the fund can be released into your account in your country for investment. Please help to understand my plea here because the finance company stated that since my father deposited the fund for safe keeping in their vault that we cannot have access to the money unless we provide account details where it will be transfered for us to enable us start to use our inherintance and that is why i need your help to provide account where the fund will be transfered once we nominate you as our sponsor. You see, here our condition is very bad and frustrating because it is not easy living on earth without father and mother, even here we do not have any single penny or cash at had to take care of our self , feed, it is very hard experience for us and we believe you can help us from your heart and trust us the way we trusted in you.

All i need from you is to help us get the total money transfered into your account for investment once we change the beneficiary in your name and favour as the person we authorise and empower for the clearance .


Once i get your details i will be submitting to my lawyer to enable him proceed for to the finance company for approval;

I need to hear from you and have something important to discuss with you very important as this fund is the only thing i can lay hand after the death of my parent and am entrusting you to assist me receive it into your account once i nominate you and issue power of attorney in your name and favour authorising them to transfer in your favour so that we can relocate and know the area to invest it and i want to donate some amount to poor and charity organisation there.

All i need is your honesty and truthfulness because this is the only hope of my living after the death of my father and mother in the war in Ivory coast.

Dearest One,

It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I and my brother Jones, intend to establish in your country.
Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding to succeed sometimes in life.
There is this huge amount of ($35,500,000.00) which my
late Father deposited in a Bank here in cote d'ivoire before he died in a ghastly motor accident.

Now I and my brother have decided to invest this money in your country for security and political reasons.

Our area of interest will be on Real Estate, Hotel, or Petroleum business. Since l do not know your country, and you are the one who knows it very well, l will be glad to welcome your expert advise on the above subject.

Finally, we want you to help us transfer it into your personal account for a good and reliable business investment in your country and arrange for travelling documents for us to meet you there.

If you can be of assistance to us we will be pleased to offer to you 18% Of the total fund or more as we may later agree upon.

I await your soonest response and best of regards.
Yours Sincerely,

CONFIDENTIALITY. My expectations never failed short.

I am Mr. Sambo Manfred, secratary to Mr. James Ibori,Former Governor of

largest crude oil producer in the world being enjoyed by friends and foes
all over the world. I will wish to state that you can imagine the level of
commitment of his Excellency to contract awards in this area and his
affluence within these years of his rule which has come to an end on the
29th of May 2007 after the general election of April 2007.

I had contacted you because of the urgent need to move the sum of US$10.5m
to you after a brief profile of you that I made on my own to avoid a lot
of things. Suffice it to say that my boss, former Delta State Governor Mr.
James Ibori of Nigeria has been in power as a state executive for the past
8 years. No doubt he has made some money one of which is what I want to
keep in your custody for safekeeping on his instruction for future
investment.The need and the urgency to send this money out of the security
company immediately is occasioned by the arrest of my former boss Mr.
James Ibori by the Economic and Financial Crime Comission (EFCC) on
allegations of money laundering. Rightnow,he is on house arrest.

My particular interest is the fund that is deposited in a Finance Security
Company which I would want you to receive within the next 5 days if you
agree to work with me to avoid any traces on this money as he now being
probe by the Financial and Economic Crime Commission (EFCC). This is
specially deposited and MARKED AS "FAMILY TREASURES AND VALUABLES" and is
not known to the finance security company as containing money of the sum
which I have told you above. Decidedly, I will give you 25% of US$10.5m
for your assistance but if you will like to assist/partner me in
establishing a good business on our behalf a clearly defined agrrement
shall be reached to ensure you maintain a 25% shareholding in it, the
options are yours and quite clear. This money will be delivered to you via
a well protected means devoid of risk to you, do also bear in mind that
there is nobody who knows the existence of this fund for now but we are
just trying to pre-empt anything at all, this transaction is strictly
between the two of us please keep it that way.
Can I count on you? To keep this transaction between us? I NEED AN ANSWER

All these fact you can confirm from various media establishment in
Nigeria and BCC:

I am not giving you this leads to make you change your mind if you have no
desire to help, but rather to let you know that with my standing and
connection with the mandate from the former Governor, this transaction
will be completed within the next 5 days if you give me your full
undivided attention and co-operation, upon receiving the fund you are
expected to safely guard this money while we look forward to other
meaningful exercise in the future.All I expect from you is for us to agree
to work together before I give you all the claim documents and guide you
very well on what to do to claim on our behalf this fund after I receive
the under listed requirement from you.

Send to me now your contact information. Where you want this fund moved or
delivered to you. Fax and full Name, which will be used to update the file
and present you to the diplomat/deposit company as the beneficiary to this
money with the mandatory letter of authority that I will issue to you, the
company will treat the processing with dispatch within the stipulated
period of time.

Furthermore, this will enable me use same information to draft out MOU
which will guide us to ensure that we follow strictly to the tenets of
agreement you will reach with me and that you receive 25% of the total sum
{US$10.5m} contained in the trunk box therein and safeguard the rest of
the money for us for investment this year. More important is the fact that
the declaration will not spell out content and is not subject to be opened
by another person except you. All are well planed and I sincerely need
your understanding and co-operation.

Mr. Sambo Manfred.

Loan Spam


I'm getting about six to ten spam messages a day trying to sell me a loan. Not the usual sort from joke companies in the UK, but from companies in the UK, who would think themselves totally proper.

One had an APR of 192% and was proud of the fact!

Isn't it illegal for these messages to be sent out from a spammer in the US?

Incidentally, the e-mail addresses they are sent to, were all harvested from the web site some years ago.

One out of five.


Please do not be surprised on receiving this email. Though we might not have a personal relationship or have met each other, we could work together on this project I am about to introduce to you. First, I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Michael Finucane. Certain funds have been left behind by my late client, below are the details.

Being that she was my client, I was her confidant as she shared with me virtually everything about her business and family. I was her lawyer and adviser for 16years and during that period I wrote her WILL and was also named as the executor. I am also aware due to our cordial relationship that she deposited an enormous amount of money in Great Britain Pounds with a bank in England that was not mentioned in her WILL. She told me about it and asked me to prepare a codicil to reflect the money. However before this could be completed, she died.

After her death, funeral and subsequent execution of her WILL, I went into action to establish the information passed unto me by my client. My findings agreed with the information. At that point, I knew I had to do something to move the funds out of the bank. Bearing at the back of my mind that I cannot do this alone, I have decided to contact you and seek your assistance and acceptance to be the next of kin to the estate.

I have an inside source at the Bank who has been very helpful in providing sensitive information as regards the funds during the course of my investigation. Through him I was able to see the deposit paper work of the money that confirmed that there is no next of kin to the funds. It is necessary for us to move the money out of the bank on time before it will be regarded as sundry funds, which would give the bank the right to claim the money.

I cannot move the money in my name because she was my client and it could create suspicion. Have my assurance that there is nothing to fear about, as we also need your assurance that you would work with me with a high degree of honesty and sincerity to achieve our desired objective. The legal procedure is no problem for I would be responsible. Since the codicil was not ready before her death, a letter of administration without WILL would be secured from the probate office. With this letter I would personally apply on your behalf to the Bank for the release of the funds to you.

Below is required from you to enable us achieve the above;

Date of Birth:
Telephone and Fax Numbers:

Upon receipt of a confirmation of acceptance from you, a sharing ratio would be worked out between the two of us and communicated to you along with the amount to be transferred to you and my telephone and fax number for communication.

Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation.

I am MR AHMED RASHEED, the Senior Foreign Remittance Director of a Bank, during the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 2000 and since 2003 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating

and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is a foreigner, a miner and an industrialist. He made millions of dollars before he died victoriously .Since DEC 26 2003 website details as follow:

and no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it. My investigation proved to me that the account has no other beneficiary and that until his death he was the manager director of aluminium & steel industries (PTY). SA.
We will start the transfer with the total sum involved [ Twenty Five Million USDollars [ USD] only, into your account, as a safe foreigners bank account abroad, but I don't know any foreigner abroad that's why I have contacted you to bear the legal sole beneficiary of the fund.

I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business. Also send your private telephone number and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit. I need your strong ssurance that you will never let me down

in this business proposition. With my influence and the position in the bank, as an official whom is working in our favour we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing.

The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately you receive this fund leaving and they will be no trace to any place and to build confidence you can wrote immediately to discuss with me the modalities,after I will make this remittance in your presented account and fix my resign date, to fly down to your country at least 7 days ahead of the fund transferred and confirm into the account.

Smith Adams

My Name is smith adams from Ivory Coast, and I am contacting you because I need your help in the management of a sum of money that my dead father left for me before he died. This money is US$2.5 million U.S Dollars and the money is in the bank in south Africa.

My late father, Mr. Locoh Mbanga was a reputable business man (A Diamond and Cocoa Merchant). It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by our relations, especially an uncle of his who traveled with him at that time. But God knows the truth!

My mother died when I was 9 years old, and since then my late father took me so special.

I have contacted the bank to confirm the money but unable to receive it until I am 24yrs. The bank said the only possibility for me to receive the US$2.5Million now is to bring my guardian and make him/her the appointed beneficiary and the money will be transfered to my guardian.

Presently, I am in south Africa on temporary refugee status due to different family problems and safety of my life too, which has made things very difficult for me at the moment.

I need you to be my guardian and legal appointed beneficiary, to enable the bank transfer the money to your account, so that you will get me papers to travel to your country to continue my education in law while you invest part of the money for my future.

I am still 20 years old law student and really need a trusthworthy guardian that will not sit on the money. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Smith Adams

Fraud. A God-Tosser

One out of five.



I am writing you this letter with caurage and fear within me. I am Mona Khalil, I am of Algerian nationality and I live in Iraq. I am a young woman of 22 yrs old. I have learnt to believe in myself and in nobody else, to face the furure with pride to prove the best i can.

I wanted a person with a big heart ready to take decisions for me. I have lived in Irag for a very long time with my parents. And my father was working with Docteur Aquila Al-Hashimi who was an adviser to the ex-president of Irag Sadam Hussien on petroleum and Agriculture. My father received gunshots from the attack which led to her death five days after in the hospital.
When he was about giving up the ghost, he informed me of the sum of $14.000.000 (fourteen milion dollars) which he kept in a safe box and deposited with a diplomatic delivery company in Cote D'Ivoire where he took as his second home. And the documents that proves this deposit was in his wardrope in the room which is with me now. Then he advised me to sick for a good person that will help me to claim this box from the security company since my mother was having a serious injury during the gunshots.My father died on the 23 July 2006.The deposit certificate of this box does not contain any name of somebody as the beneficiary but only my father's name as the depositor.

It was indicated that the box be delivered by the company to the adresse of the foreign partner via diplomatic means. And i felt that it is by the grace of Allah that i got an occasion to leave Irag and i decided to keep this document within me. I therefore contacted the company to verify the existence of this box and they confirmed this to me but was deposited for onward delivery to the designated address of the foreign associate. And since i cannot claim this box myself. I am seeking your asistance to contact this security company and apply for the delivery of this box to your country.

I have the deposit certificate and agreement certificate, i am ready to send to you this documents in line with the contact of the security company so that you might contact them and apply for the delivery of this boxin your Country for me. You will apply as the foreign associate to my late father and when you have received this box, you will then arrange for my arival into your country and as well establish another life for myself. You should understand that this transaction should be kept within us as secret, because if the family of my late father's boss happens to know this, they will definately do bad to me. Presently, i am here in Africa in Cote D'Ivoire where this box was deposited. And it was after the death of my father i left Irag.
I am totally frustrated that my whole mind for now lies on my survival which is securing this money. Please I am confiding completely in you and I really need your assistance at this point of my life as you alone knows of this venture.You have no problem with the company, all you need is to contact the company and present the documents. On your request i will forward to you copies of my personal pictures and passport for your view while I will expect to have yours in return.

Please remember the security company did not know the contain of the box and my father deposited it as family valuable items in their custody. For your commision, i have set aside, 30% of the total sum as your commision and 70% will be for me.

Should this deal interest you please do write me quickly to enable me give you the contact of the company and the deposit slip so that you will contact the security company for the box.
Thanks and Almighty and Merciful Allah Be with you.
Sincerely Yours
Mona Khalil.

Ahlaji Dangoyaro Usnman


Fraud. A genuine Nigerian one too. It's a pity all these keep coming, as if you are an honest Nigerian, it must be very difficult doing business.

One out of five.


Dear friend,
I got your contract through the world trade Encyclopedia during my search for a reliable individual/company who can jointly handle strictly confidential transaction with me which involves the transfer of a reasonable sum of money to a foreign bank account. Due to the nature of this business transaction, a neutral person like you is preferred.For introductory purpose, I AM AHLAJI DANGOYARO USNMAN .a member of the Contract Review Panel set up by the present civilian government of Nigeria to look into all contract awards and payments to foreign contractors by all her agencies with a view of ascertaining their genuineness. In the course of our investigation, it was discovered that every contractor has been paid his or her entitlement in full,but in the suspense account of the Nigeria National Petroleum corporation with STANDARD TRUST BANK OF NIGERIA PLC we found about US$35.5m.

Further findings revealed that it was as a result of the over-invoicing of certain contracts by officials of the Petroleum Corporation.With no one laying claims to this over-invoiced amount, the Contract Review Panel unanimously decided to transfer this money into a foreign bank account for their personal use. But because the code of conduct of the Federal civil service does not permit us (civil servants) to operate foreign accounts, we decided to solicit your assistance in transferring the fund.
In order to test the sincerity of a Morrocan we had intended transfering themoney into his account, we first transferred the sum of US$5m into his account but suprisingly, he refused to disburse our own share of the money to us threatening to report us to the Federal Government of our country,hence, our resolve to remit the balance of US$30.5m into the account of a areliable,Trustworthy and sincere individual or organisation.
For your services, you will be entitled to 20% of the total amount, 75% will be for the Panel members that includes my humble self while the remaining 5% will be for the settlement of expenses incurred by both parties in the course of carrying out the transaction.As top civil servants, anything that will jeopardise our over 20 years of selfless service to the nation must be avoided in order not to be labelled economic saboteurs. Therefore, we implore you to keep everything about this deal strictly confidential until thefunds has been transferred. For further details, get in touch with me through my e-mail address and telephone line and if you adhere strictly to instructions, this transaction will be concluded within 9 (nine) working days from the date of receipt of particulars requested. Note furthermore that the information required is important ingredients to the successful consumation of this deal.
We have concluded all the necessary underground works to facilitate the smooth transfer of the funds into an account that you will norminate and send to us. All the security details have also been concluded. For instance, I have concluded arrangements to retrieve and destroy all the documents connected with this funds transfer as soon as the funds arrive in your bank account.This measure is simply to ensure that the funds is not traced to you now or in the future.
Your security is guaranteed. As I await your prompt response, remember to keep the transaction strictly confidential at all times. For security of this transaction, you are to direct all communication with me through my MAIL; or AHLAJI DANGOYARO USNMAN.

Dearly Beloved in Christ,

Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ Amen.

I believe you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database from your country.

I am Mrs. Bevlyn Scott a national of Dublin, Ireland suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications, my condition is serious and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe state and my doctor has told me this.

My late husband after a long protracted illness, and during the period of our marriage we had no child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. As my doctor told me that I may not live for more than six months, I am so scared about this. So, I decided to divide part of the inherited wealth, by contributing to the development of evangelism in the world and to help the less privileged.

This mission, who will no doubt be tasking had made me to recently relocate to a church known as "Synagogue church of all Nations" where I am presently to receive healing. You are amongst the selected few after browsing the Internet for this purpose and I prayed over it.

Sarah Welsh



One out of five.

Dear Friend

I am Mrs. Sarah Welsh, an English woman who is suffering from cancerous Ailment. I am married to Sir Jim Welsh who also is an Englishman though Dead now.

My husband worked with the Nigeria Railways for over two decade before the cold hand of death took him away on the 23rd of July 2003 at about 2:00AM. Our marriage lasted for over a decade without any fruit of the Womb. My husband died after a protracted illness.

My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the Less-privileged individuals within the United Kingdom, Europe, North and South America, Africa and the rest of the globe as he had passion for persons who cannot 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 10 Million (Ten Million Dollars with a bank in Nigeria.

Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have a limited or numbered days on earth and that my life span will not exceed 150days 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 a on-governmental, or a non Religious, and or a non profit organization or better still an Individual, that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. This gift, which comes from, my husbands sweat to fund the upkeep of widows, Widowers, orphans, destitute, the downtrodden, 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 husband Jim Welsh hard earned money 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, hence 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 husband relatives around me. I do not want them to know about this development.With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply to my private email: , include:

Full name and Address,
Telephone number,

I Shall give you the contact of the bank in Nigeria for the claim of the fund. I will also issue you a Certificate Of Deposit 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.

Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a Non-governmental, or a non religious, and or a non profit organization on Or better still an individual for this same purpose.

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.

Mrs. Sarah Welsh.
