My wife and I decided to donate the sum of $500,000.00USD to you as part of our charity project to improve the lot of 10 lucky individuals all over the world from our $11.3 million Jackpot Lottery winning fund. We prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because I saw your profile on Google email owners list and picked you. Violet my wife and I have decided to make sure this is put on the internet for the world to see. My wife has cancer and she died last year July 16 at Colchester regional hospital in truro, my wife just didn\'t die but she was a great person and I miss her so much and this is why I have decided to do one thing i promised her forever. as you could see from the video and webpage below, that I am not getting any younger and you can imagine having no kids at this age. Although we won this lottery funds last year July 2011/2012 and we have helped some charity organization from our winnings

We have kept just 2% of the entire lottery sum to our self for the raining day.

To facilitate the payment process of the funds ($500,000.00 usd) which have been donated solely to you, you are to send us your full names for payment, your contact address and your personal telephone number, address (i asked for this brief information just to know who i am donating this money to and because of the Identity thief going around the world which i have been a victim i do not want to ask you for your ID as i do not want to leave an impression in your mind that i want to steal your identity) I am hoping that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously over there in your country. please you have to do your part to also alleviate the level of poverty in your region, help as many you can help once you have this money in your personal account because that is the only objective of donating this money to you in the first place.
