My name is Mrs.Maria Johnson. I am a dying woman who had decided to
donate what I have to you. I am 59 years old and was diagnosed for
cancer about 2 years ago,immediately after the death of my husband, who
had left me everything he worked for.I have been touched by God to donate
from what I have inherited from my late husband to the you for the good work
of God,rather than allow my relatives to use my husband’s hard earned funds
ungodly.I have asked God to forgive me all my sins and i believe he has
because He is a merciful God.

I will be going in for an operation,and i pray that i survive the operation.
I have decided to WILL/donate the sum of $10,500,000 (Ten million five hundred
thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and to help the
privileged and also for the assistance of the widows.At the moment I cannot take
any telephone
calls, due to the fact that my relatives are around me and i have been
restricted by my
doctor from taking telephone calls because i deserve all thee rest i can
get.Presently,I have
informed my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund to you.I wish you all
the best and may
the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always
extend the
good work to others.

Kindly Contact my lawyer through this email address
( or call his private line : +4472223066244
if you are interested in carrying out thistask,so that he can arrange the
release of the funds ($10,500,000.00) to you. My lawyer’s name is Walter Ashdown.
I know I have never met you but my mind tells me to do this,and i hope
you act sincerely.

NB: I will appreciate your ultmost confidentiality in this matter
until the task is accomplished,as I don’t want anything that will
Jeopardize my last wish, due to the fact that i do not want relatives or
family members standing in the way of my last wish.

Thank you and God bless you,

Maria Johnson.
