Dear Blessed One, Greetings to you blessed one!. As you read through my message, I do not want you to feel pity or sorry for me, for I believe someday, somehow, we will all surely die, this is about mine, and a last wish. My name is Miriam Ahmed a Citizen of Oman,but presently based in Britain for my medical attention, I am a 53 years old woman, I am diagnosed of Cancer of the Larynx and it is terminal, medical science can not do anything for me at this stage. I believe in miracles because I believe in GOD, however I prefer to pass on at this stage since I am bed ridden and in constant pain. Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I lived for, I never really cared about other values in life. But since my present situation, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have been helping orphans in orphanage/motherless homes. I have once donated some money to orphans in war ravaged Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan and some East European Countries. Having known my condition I decided to entrust my last funds I have deposited in Europe( USD 6.7 mILLION) to either a philanthropic or devoted individual that will use his judgement to distribute the money to charity organizations and feel free to reimburse yourself when you have the money, for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations. I have left the hospital and presently at home, I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few months to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations, because I don't have any child and my relatives and friends has plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and distribute it amongst charity organizations. Since my health is retrogressing by the minute, you will have to send your; POSTAL ADDRESS, CONTACT PHONE NUMBER AND FAX and a little details about yourself, because I got your address from the Internet after a thorough search. With the information, I will make arrangement to prepare the authorization through an Attorney for you to get possession of the Deposit. I will give you the name and contact of the Deposit company where the money is lodged in Europe thereafter, so you can claim the funds. Until I hear from you, I pray that this letter bring you and your family good tidings. Please reply as soon possible Looking forward to hearing from you soonest. Regards, Miriam Ahmmed
