Here writes Lady Rita Mosley,suffering from cancerous ailment. I am married to Sir David Mosley an Englishman who is dead.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Twenty Million Pounds(20,000,000.00)which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK.
Recently,my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the stroke and cancerous problems I am suffering from.With this hard reality that has befallen my family and me, I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of orphans,and less-privileged individuals.
I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband hard earned money to be misused.
