Dear beloved please I need your cooperation and assistance! –

Dear beloved, Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. My name is Begoña Rosemary Pauls and I’m a 79 year old deaf Christian woman from Asturias Spain. Am suffering from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my brain and my condition has worsened and it deteriorates daily. From all indication regarding my worst health my doctor had advised me that I may not live for the next one month, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to an advanced/untreatable stage. I have decided to email you for permission for the help of my funds and I sincerely hope you will understand my plight; I was married to my late husband for fifty-five years without a child. My husband died some years ago and since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sums of $10Million dollars with a Security Bank, the fund is still in the Security Bank and the management just wrote me that I should provide an inheritor or rather issue a letter of authorization to a recipient to receive it on my behalf since I can not because of my terrible illness and my days on earth are numbered. I don’t want the bank to confiscate my fund. I have since lost my ability to communicate and it’s my last wish to see that this fund is invested/distributed to the charity & deaf organization and to the poor, and to the motherless baby’s home. I want you to also use the money to fund orphanages, churches and to expend the kingdom of God, I took this decision before I rest in peace because my time will soon be over. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of my late husband&s lawyer, he will administer all legal documents. My lawyer and I will issue you a letter of authorization and the certificate of deposit of the fund that will proof you as the new beneficiary/Inheritor of the funds. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated, delay in your respond will make me to source for another person for this same purpose. I shall wait at your prayerful reply. May the Lord be with you and watch over your family. Mrs. Mrs. Rosemary Begoña Pauls
