I received the following email today:

Dear God's elect,
I am writing this mail to you with tears In my eyes and great sorrow in my heart,My Name is Alice Idrissa Toyo.I am contacting you from my country Tunisia I want to tell you this because i don't have any other option than to tell you as i was touched to open up to you,I am married to Mr Idrissa Toyo who worked with Tunisia embassy in in Burkina Faso for nine years before he died in the year 2005..We were married for eleven years without a child he died after a brief illness that lasted for five days.Since his death I decided not to remarry,When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$ 8.2m(Eight million two hundred thousand dollars) in a bank in Ouagadougou the capital city of Burkina Faso in west Africa Presently this money is still in bank.He made this money available for exportation of Gold from Burkina Faso mining.

Recently after my first operation which i attch in this site some test has been carried out by my doctor he discovered that my cancer sting has done alots of damage in my body system which make my condition so critical he now advise that i should under go an operation agani if not i would not last for the period of seven months due to my cancer problem.

The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.Having known my condition I decided to hand over this money to you to take care of the less-privileged because this is a promise i made to God even before i go for the first operation and is akind of asking God to forgive my sins and deliver me from the operation.I promised God to save me from the operation that i will give all my wealth to unknown person which happen to be you so i have handed you over all this money with all the trust that i have on you to take care of the less-privileged,If only you will utilise this money the way iam going to instruct herein i want you to take 30 Percent of the total money for your personal use While 70% of the money will go to charity" people in the street and helping the orphanage, because i grew up as an Orphan so i don't have anybody as my family member, just to endeavor that the house of God is maintained.this sickness have suffered me too much,as soon as i receive your response I shall give you the contact of the bank in Burkina Faso and I will also instruct my lawyer to issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of the money in the bank, That is if you assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein.
Hoping to receive your reply.
Yours Sister Alice Idrissa
