I am Mrs. Stella Tom From England, I was married to late Mr. Patrick Tom the
CEO of PAT CAT Oil Mining & Exploration, I am 58 years old, I am suffering
from a long time cancer of the breast which has affected my talking &
hearing lately. The cancer has reached a critical stage, so my doctors have
courageously advised me to indulge in Prayers as well because it is clear that I
would not live past the next two to three months. I was raised in an orphanage
Home, and was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child.
My husband and I are true Christians so after his death I decided not to
re-marry, he died in a fatal motor accident which I know is political motivated
because of his venture in the new oil industry. I sold all my inherited
belongings and deposited all the sum of (Gbp¨11,379,000.00 Pounds) with a Bank.
Presently, the money is still with the bank, and I received a letter from the
management of the holding bank as the real depositor urging me to come forward
to receive the money after keeping it for such a long or rather issue a letter
of approval or power of attorney to somebody to receive it on my behalf or the
management will confiscate the funds.
Frankly, I can not come over as a result of my illness; I'm with my laptop
in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment. I have since lost my
ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested in any Charitable
Organization of your choice and distributed each year among the Charity
organizations and Orphanages, so I want a good humanitarian to use this money to
fund Churches, Needy and Widows in your Country I must let you know that this
was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue, and
I hope you will help see my last wishes come true.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall use the little money I have for my
drugs and Medic-care to procure and issue you a letter of authority which will
prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds and I shall release the
contact of the Bank to you.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. I hope to
hear from you soonest if you are willing to handle this project.
Awaiting your urgent reply ASAP. Via email (email@example.com)
Please do not reply back to this email, but endeavor to contact me on
My private email address :(firstname.lastname@example.org)
Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Stella Tom.
