Dear Friend.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die 
someday. My name is Andrew Stokes,a merchant in U.A.E, I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer 
.It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to 
live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never 
really cared for anyone(not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never 
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing 
I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting 
to have or make all the money in the world.

I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members 
as well as a few close friends. I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want 
this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some 
charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria,South America,Eastern Europe and Malaysia.Now that my 
health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have 
there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to 
themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have 
left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of seven million euros 
Ђ7,000,000,that I have with a finance/firm Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this 
deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations.

I have set aside 10% for you for your time and patience.please send a reply through this email 
address (  with your full contact information for more private and 
confidential communication.

yours truly,

Mr Andrew Stokes
