Dear Friend, Greetings from L.U.TH. Hospital and God bless I am Mrs Rita Rebecca Hansen ,A widow to the Late Clark Hansen, I am 53years old, and a new Christian convert, suffering from long time, cancer of the ear. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it’s quite obvious that I won’t live long according to my doctors. This is because my cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. My late husband was killed during the U.S raid, against terrorism in Afghanistan when he traveled to Afghanistan to monitor a Hospital/a Humanitarian Found at (HHF) he was setting up for the benefit of the Afghan masses as of then; whose majority and 99 percent of them were Muslims, Islamic scholars and loyalists. During the period of our marriage we couldn’t produce any child. But my late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his businesses and wealth, and when I noticed that my condition is not improving rather it gets worsen by the day I decided to divide part of this wealth, to contribute to Charity and the development of the churches in Africa, and I prayed over it. So I am willing to donate the sum of $1.8 Million to you for charity, Evangelical work and the less privileged, churches, orphanages and widows, Propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. I took this decision upon myself because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. Because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity upon vanity. Please I want you to note that this fund is deposited with security company For safety purpose. And upon my instruction, I will file in an application for the Change of Ownership of the fund to your name once I hear from you and you give me assurance of utilizing the fund properly. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and your family. I Await Your Urgent response to this email and with your contact telephone numbers and be informed that any delay in your response will give me room in sourcing for a church, another person or Christian individual for this same purpose. Yours in Christ. Mrs Rita Rebecca Hansen Mrs Rebecca Hansen – [email protected]
