I got your contact Address from internet. Going through your profile I was convinced that one can confide in you
My name is Mrs. Gloria Peelaez, from Toulouse France. I have been suffering from ovarian cancer disease and the doctor says that I have just a short time to live. For the past Twelve years, I have being dealing on gold exportation, before falling ill due to the Cancer.
My late husband, Dr. Amalambu A. Peelaez, a retired diplomat and one time minister of mines and Power in the republic of Cote D'Ivire made a lot of money from the sales of Gold and cotton while he was a minister, but we had no child of our own.
later my husband realized through a powerful man of God that it was evil course instituted by his brother in other to inherit his wealth, but before then it was too late, I and my husband agreed that he should remarry another wife but our religion did not permit it, while planning this my husbandâs brother heard it and they planned and killed my husband at the age of 58, he died in the month of September 2007
Now that I am very sick and according to the doctor, will not survive the sickness. The worst of it all is that I do not have any family members or children to inherit my wealth.
I am writing this letter now through the help of the computer beside my sick bed.
I have $4.5 Million US Dollars deposited in Eco-Bank here in Cote D'Ivoire and I am willing to instruct my bank to transfer the said fund to you as my foreign Trustee.
You will apply to the bank, that they should release the fund to you, but you will assure me that you will take 50% of the fund and give 50% to the orphanages home in your country for my soul to rest after i have gone. In my next email, I will send you the copy of the Certificate of Deposit which will enable you apply to the bank and receive the money with ease.
Please respond to me immediately on my private email address where i am able to access my emails quickly (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details and instructions since I am in the end times of my life due to the ovarian cancer disease.
Hoping to receive your response as soon as possible.
