Greetings in the Mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

With Due Respect and Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground, May the blessings of the most high God be upon you and grant you the wisdom to understand this situation and how much I need your help.

I am suffering from a long-time Colon Cancer, from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating, according to my doctors the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

This money came as a result of a payback contract between my husband and a Russian firm. The Russian partner returned my husband's own share.

I was married to late Dr.Ardwa Beneni,a contractor who worked with Oil company (PETROCI) for fifty-two years before he died in the year 2009, He died after a Cardiac Arteries Operation. Since after his death, I decided to fulfil vow we made together. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($4,500,000.00) in a Bank in Abidjan and the money is still there.
 
Recently, My Doctor told me about my condition due to my cancer problem and having known my condition. I have decided to handle over this money to a HONEST person, whether Moslem or Christian, group organization that will utilize this fund for the services of mankind, helping the motherless homes, orphans, widows, as desired by my late husband when he was alive.

 I took this decision because I don't have any child to inherit this fund, and I don't want this money to be used unwisely. I want you to always remember me in your daily prayers because of my upcoming Cancer Surgery, although I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.

 Write back to me as soon as possible because any delay in your reply will give me opportunity to look for another person for this same purpose, With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply, I shall give you other information’s on how you can receive this money from the bank. I will be glad to hear from you soon.


May God bless and keep us as we seek to serve him.


Yours.

From :Mrs Ednidora Beneni
