Subject: Greetings To You.

Greetings to You,
I thank you for accepting my friendship. I came here in quest to find someone that will listen to me and understand how deeply I need to confide in him/her, though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest Medium of communication. I am Mrs. April E.Bauer, 69 years old American, a widow to late Mr. Bernhard E. Bauer a Dutch National of German origin, who perished on May 12 2010 in a plane crash that happened in Libya. After going through some files of my late husband, I discovered a Deposit Certificate of €5 808 396.00 (Five Million Eight Hundred and Eight Thousand Three hundred and ninety six Euros) with one of the French bank in Cote D’Ivoire, where he worked as an engineer before his untimely death. Due to my sickness, I have not been able to claim the funds from them, as I have been in the hospital and my sickness continue getting worst. I am suffering from a protracted cancer of the lungs which has affected my brain. My doctors have courageously advised that I may not live beyond the next two months because the cancer has reached a critical stage. I am contacting you based on trust and hope to present you to the secure deposit company as the Beneficiary and Bonafide Inheritor to my Late Husband's fund, since I cannot claim this fund myself now and I may not live beyond next two months according to my Doctors. If you will so kind to be of help, I will be very glad and only God will reward you for that. Upon the successful claiming/release of this fund to you as my next of kin, 30% of the total fund will be taken as your own share, while 70% will be used for Orphanage home and charities. But, my Question is 'CAN I TRUST YOU? As a sick helpless woman can I put my hope on you that you will abide by my wish once the funds are released to you?? If yes, please in your response send me the following information below to enable me validate you as the legal beneficiary of this funds to the bank.
(1). Full names:
(2). Contact address:
(3). Direct Telephone Number:
(4). Age:
(5). Occupation:
(6). Sex
(7). E-mail Address.
As soon as I receive your details, I will instruct the bank to contact you for immediate release of the funds to you for the charity project.

Thanks and God bless.
Mrs.April E. BaueR
