Christianized Version of the classic Nigerian scam

This e-mail escaped my spam filter ...
Looks like Nigerian scams have been exported to other African countries and taken on a "Christian" garb. *sigh* and *deep sigh*

From Mrs. Celine Ogaba
Address; lot 268 Rue de
Bingerville Cocody Abidjan
Cote d'Ivoire West Africa.
My Dearest,
Here writes Mrs. Celine Ogaba, suffering from cancerous ailment. I was married to late Mr. Robert Ogaba who was a reknowned cocoa merchant here in Abidjan. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $7.5 Million (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) with a Bank in Abidjan.
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 husband's effort to fund the upkeep of widows, 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.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

With God all things are possible.

Your Sister in Christ,
Mrs Celine Ogaba.
