I am Mrs. Elisabeth Hudson from Sao Tome and Principe, I was married to late Mr. Patrick Hudson the CEO of PATCAT Oil Mining & Exploration, I am 58 years old, I am suffering from a long time cancer of the breast which has affected my talking & hearing lately. The cancer has reached a critical stage, so my doctors have courageously advised me to indulge in Prayers as well because it is clear that I would not live past the next two to three months. I was raised in an orphanage Home, and was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child.
My husband and I are true Christians so after his death I decided not to Re-marry, he died in a fatal motor accident which I know is political motivated because of his venture in the new oil industry. I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of US$28,300,000.00 with a Bank. Presently, the money is still with the bank, and I received a letter from the management of the holding bank as the real depositor urging me to come forward to receive the money after keeping it for such a long or rather issue a letter of approval or power of attorney to somebody to receive it on my behalf or the management will confiscate the funds.
Frankly, I can not come over as a result of my illness; I'm with my laptop In a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested in any Charitable Organization of your choice and distributed each year among the Charity organizations and Orphanages, so I want a good humanitarian to use this money to fund Churches, Needy and Widows in Sao Tome and Principe or in your Country but preferably in Sao Tome and Principe. I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue, and I hope you will help see my last wishes come true.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall use the little money I have for my Drugs and Medi-care to procure and issue you a letter of authority which will prove that you are the new beneficiary of my funds and I shall release the contact of the Bank to you.
God bless you
Mrs Elisabeth Hudson
