This is the email she sent me....

Sorry I haven\'t contact you until now, I was away because I was called that my daughter was seriously sick and she was being rushed to the hospital after several test that was performed on her we got to know that she is suffering from breast cancer and she has to go through chemo treatment and surgical operation... On my way to check her, i got a little accident wish i am presently at the hospital now but I just received an email from my financial clerk that the payment for the item Has been mailed out already to the address you gave to me earlier and you will be receiving it soon . but there is something I must bring to your notice, I discovered that some how the financial clerk have over paid you. The payment that was meant for another transaction was sent to you and the one meant for you was sent to another but the payment is on your name, she mentioned that her new secretary went ahead to mail the whole amount she was to pay me and am really worried if my money will be safe with you. I was really Mad at her but there is really nothing I can do now well, however I want to believe I won\'t have any problem with this and if I can trust you with my money. Please once you receive the payment, I will like you to take it to your bank and deposit it and once it clears your account, you are to deduct your money for the item. And the rest will be send to my Daughter\'s Dr for the surgery..

Thanks a lot.
