Hello Friend,

My name is Mrs Sarah Kinr. I am a dying woman who has decided to donate
what I have to charity through you.

You may be wondering why I chose you, since I don't know you and we have
never met before. But the truth is that "someone has to be chosen". Let it
be known to you that I am a little bit apprehensive, but I have the
understanding that friends are discovered and friends are made. I have come
to accept the fact that I cannot achieve success in this Project without
trusting someone. This brings us to the need for both of us to have
absolute trust and believe in one another as we can only fail if we divide
in interests. Let trust and Honesty be our watchword throughout this

Though, this medium (the Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to
reach you through it because, it still remains the fastest, surest and most
secured medium of communication. However, this correspondence is purely
private & confidential, and it should be treated as such. I wish to inform
you once again that this Project is absolutely legitimate and all the
operations will be performed without the breach of any international

I am 56 years old and was diagnosed of cancer about 2 years ago immediately
after the death of my husband who had left me everything he had worked for.
I have been touched by the LORD to donate from what I have inherited from
my late husband to charity through you for the good work of humanity,
rather than allow my greedy relatives to use my late husband's hard earned
funds inappropriately.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for
anyone. Though I married a very rich man, I was never generous, I was
always hostile to people and only focused on myself as that was the only
thing I cared for since I don't have any child. But now, I regret all this
as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have all the
money in the world. I have asked the lord to forgive me all my sins and I
believe he has, because He is merciful. I will be going in for an operation
very soon, and I pray that I survive the operation.

I believe that if I have a second chance to come to this world again, I
would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that I may
not live longer, I want mercy to be shown on my soul, so I have decided to
give alms to the poor & charity organizations and to help the motherless
children & orphans, the less privileged, and also for the assistance of
widows, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth
before I pass on. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do
this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my
accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity
organizations in Indian, Sudan, Bulgaria and Pakistan; but they refused and
kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they
seem not to be contented with what I have left for them.

I have decided to Donate & give the sum of US$10.5 Million (Ten Million
Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) to charity through you.
Presently, I have informed my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund
to charity through any God-fearing and reliable person. I wish you all the
best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds
well and always extend the good work to others. If you are interested in
carrying out this task, I will inform my Lawyer so that he can arrange for
the release of the funds to you. I know I have never met you before but my
mind tells me to do this, and I hope you act sincerely. Now my questions

1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. What will be your commission?

At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls, because I have a throat
infection and have been restricted by my doctors who has advised that I

deserve all the rest I can get as I am now too weak and fragile to do
things myself because of my health condition.
