> Here writes Patricia Haswell, suffering from cancerous ailment of the brain. I am married to Dr.Dolhamm P. Haswell, an Englishman who is now dead. My husband was into private practice all his life before his death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without child.
> My husband died after a protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who can not help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came.
> When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of £2,000,000.00 (Two Million Pounds sterling) which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK. Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from since it affects the delicate part of the brain. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition to the brain cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my family, and me I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially and i do not discriminate any religion for we all look up to one God.
> It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be with the Almighty when I eventually pass on. The Almighty will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband’s relatives around me. I do not want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible.
> As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank in UK. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and members of your family.
> Finally, in a non-negotiable basis, I am honestly willing to offer you 15% of the total funds once I confirm that you are seriously prepared to handle this transaction as the new beneficiary and thereafter be the co-ordinator of this charity program in future, while 85% of the funds goes for the charity funding and upkeep.
