Subject: Greetings From Mrs Marie Catherine.

From Mrs Marie Catherine.

With Due Respect And Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground. My name is Mrs Marie Catherine, I am married to Mr Jean-Claude ROLAND a director in a trading company here in Cote d’Ivoire.We were married for 36 years without a child. He died after a Cadiac Arteries Operation.

Cue the violins.

And Recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the liver and stroke). Before my husband died last year there is this sum $2.8 Million Dollars that he deposited with a Private Finance Company here In Ivory Coast.Presently this money is still in the Vault of the Company.

You wouldn’t happen to be a friend of Ms. Esther Jacob? She sent me an email claiming she “may not last for the next six months” and had a similar “business proposal.”

Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to any good God fearing brother or sister that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct herein. I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my late.husband to help Lessprivilaged people, orphanages,widows and propagating the word of God. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this fund, And I don’t want in away where this money will be used in an unGodly way. This is why I am taking this decision to hand you over this Fund.

I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.I want you to always remember me in your daily prayers because of my up coming Cancer Surgery.Write back as soon as possible any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose, Hoping to read from you asap.

I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. To Hell.

God bless you as you listing to the voice of reasoning.

Mrs Marie Catherine.

For someone suffering from cancer Ms. Marie Catherine sure gets around. She apparently sent this email from a computer in Japan
