Compliment of the season to you and your household, I hope this communication meet you well as you will be curious to know why/how I selected you to receive the cash sum of US$500,000 our information below is 100% genuine, please see the link below:
Cause to the information in our article above, We have prayed and searched over the internet for assistance on our decision to donate US$500,000 dollars to you because i saw your profile on google published email owners list and picked you, we have already finalized our decision to donate the sum of US$500,000 dollars to you as part of our charity project to improve the lot of five (5) lucky individuals all over the world from our $11.3 million Jackpot Lottery winning fund. Violet my wife and i have decided to make sure this is put on the internet for the world to see before she died, my wife had cancer and she died last year july 16 at colchester regional hospital in truro, my wife just didn't die but she was a loving and caring wife 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 webpage above, am not getting any younger and you can imagine having no kids at this age. Although we won this lottery funds last year july 2010 this money has been in my possession and we have helped some charity organizations from our winnings.
After taken care of the needs of our immediate family members and friends, we both decided on donating the remaining of the $11million to other individuals around the world in need, the local fire department, the red cross, haiti, hospitals in truro where violet underwent her cancer treatment, and some other organizations in asia and europe that fight cancer, alzheimer's and diabetes and the bulk of the funds deposited with our financial firm of this charity donation. we have kept just 2% of the entire lottery sum to our self.
For me to facilitate the disbursement process of the funds (US$500,000 dollars) which we have donated solely to you, you are to send us your full names for payment, your contact address and your personal telephone number, so that i can forward your payment information to you. I am hoping that you will be able to use the money prudently and judiciously over there in your locality. please you have to do your part to also alleviate the level of poverty in your region, help as many people you can help this holiday season once you have this money in your personal account because that is our only objective of donating this money to you.
I like to assure you of the authenticity of this services as we will not be involved in any illegal act and will never be, we only want to feel good by helping people at this beginning of the year, this is the only thing that makes my wife happy even now that she is not here with me anymore, we have too much to give away as I only have few years left on earth. I will advise as you as the prospective lucky winners to be calm not to loose this great opportunity which millions of people are trying to entangled but the chances just couldn’t come for them because a lot of people are out there to discourage them as they don't know how it works, and have never seen such before
Reply me if you have received this message and provide me with your name, current address and personal telephone number to enable me provide you the additional information for your payment at once, we are indeed grateful.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
God bless you Violet and Allen Large.
