My name is Mrs. Cynthia Thomas, I have decided to donate what I have to you. I was diagnosed with cancer Few years ago, immediately after the death of my husband, who has left me everything he worked for. I have been inspired by God to donate my inheritance from my late husband to you for the good work of God, rather than allow my relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds in ungodly pursuits. I am suffering from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my hearing ability and my brain. From all indication my conditions is deteriorating and it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that I may not live long. This is because the cancer has reached a very serious stage. I have disposed of all my inherited belongings and deposited the resultant sum of $10 million dollars and two trunks filled with family valuables with a Security Company. I decided to bequeath the sum of $10,000,000.00 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. Contact Mr. William Peterson with this specified email- firstname.lastname@example.org Tell: +447017048206 and tell him that I have bequeathed $10,000,000.00 my personal reference number law/chamber/solicitors/je/ws/WILL/9834520012. I have also notified him that I am bequeathing that amount to you by my personal decision. While, I don't know you but I have been directed to do this. Thanks and God bless.
