My dear please it took me time to write this message to you.
My dear, I'm going for surgery next few days please I need your prayers, I found your contact during my private search here at the hospital.
My name is Ms. Sarah layla Ahmed am 52, I am a citizen of Belgium my late husband is Mr. Benaiah Ahmed.
my late husband is a politician who has a small gold company in Burkina Faso, my last husband died in 2016, during his lifetime he deposited the sum of ($7.670) Seven million six hundred seventy thousand dollars in a bank in Burkina phase. The money was from the sale of his company.
I have decided to donate this money to you for the support of helping orphaned babies / underprivileged / widows and churches also to build the house of God because I've been dying and diagnosed with cancer for long time.
The doctors informed me yesterday that I have few days to live because of the stage of my illness problem. I decided to donate what I inherited from my late husband to you for the good work of Almighty God.
Now I want you to be my next of kin for claim the funds for charitable purposes because this money remain unclaimed and the bank executives or the government will take the money as an unclaimed fund and maybe use it for selfishness and useless endeavors.
I know that you are honest, please claim this fund and use the 60% for Works of charity, for orphanages, widows and also build schools and churches for least privilege in your country and the 40% is for you and your family.
I need your urgent reply to know if you will be able to run this project, and I will give you more information on how the fund will be transferred to your bank account.
