My late husband...

Scam:

``````````

Dear Beloved,

Let me first of all inform you that I got your email address from a mail Directory and decide to write you first for a permission to go ahead.
Well, I am Mrs.ROSEMARY LEMON from Sri Lanka. I am married to BARRISTER .D.JOHNSON LEMON a Ghananian who worked with a construction company in Asia for twenty years before he died in the Tsunami disaster, we were married but with no issue. And since after his death I vowed not to remarry .

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $9.5M. (Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a FINANCIAL/DIPLOMATIC FIRM. and presently this money is still with the firm. The management just wrote me to come forward to receive the money or I rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I cannot come over.
I am presently in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment of Cancer of the lungs.
I have since then lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only but few months to live.
I want a person that is trust worthy that will utilize 90% of this money to support churches, orphanages and widows around the world but in my name MOTHER ROSEMARY LEMON.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Firm. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you the new beneficiary of this fund.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein and Keep this contact confidential until the time this fund gets to your custody. This is to ensure that nothing jeopardizes my last wish on Earth.

I await your urgent reply.

REMAIN BLESSED,
ROSEMARY LEMON
