Nigerian Scams – 419 Scam Information
Greetings to you in Jesus name Amen!
I am Mother Sarah Alan Rowland, the wife to Late. Rev. Dr. Alan George Rowland who worked with the German embassy in Dubai for Nine years and died in the year 2004. We were married for good seventeen years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only one month and two days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home, which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $48 Million Dollars (Forty Eight Million U.S. Dollars) in a bank in Spain, and My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my breast cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to contact you to make foundation with the funds for the orphanages and widows and also to propagate the word of God and to ensure that orphanages are educated. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth.
I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want our hard earned money to be squandered by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard, With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund through the help of my late husband’s attorney. Please, hear the voice of charities crying, so you should ensure to use the of money as I stated. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.!
Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a good Christian or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hear from you. reply me & Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Blessings to you,
Mother Sarah Alan Rowland
