Subject: Greetings my Beloved, view my attached file
I greet you with the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is true that this letter may come to you as a
surprise. Nevertheless, I humbly ask you to give me your attention and hear me well.
My name is Mrs. Marilda Bernhard from Germany. I was brought up from a motherless baby's
home in my country and was married to my late husband Dr. Bruno Bernhard who worked with
our Embassy here in South Africa for a period of 8years before he died. We were married for 25
years without a child before he died in a fatal car accident. Since his death I decided not to
remarry due to my religious belief .I am 59 years old, and am suffering from a long time cancer of
the breast which also affected my brain from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and
it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that i may not live for the
next two months this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage
When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$5.6M (Five Million Six Hundred
Thousand United State Dollars) with a Bank here in South Africa. Presently this money is still in
the custody of the Bank in South Africa. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the
next two months due to cancer illness.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this money to Churches, organizations or good
person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.
I want you to use this money for Churches, Charity organizations, orphanages, widows and other
people that are in need. l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this
money . Moreover, my husband relatives are not close to me since I develop a Cancer problem
and it had been their wish to see me dead in order to inherit his wealth since we have no Child.
These people are not worthy of this inheritance. This is why I am taking this decision.
I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my ill-health. As soon as I
receive your reply I will give you the contact of the Bank in South Africa where this money is
deposited. I will also issue a letter of authorization to the bank that will prove you the present
beneficiary of this money. I also want you to always put me in prayer.
Please reply to me at my email address at email@example.com
Any delay in your reply may give me room to look for another good person for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.
Hoping to receive your response soonest at my private email address at
Thanks and Remain blessed
Yours Sister in The Lord,
Mrs. Marilda Bernhard
