> 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 Peter Walter, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been diagnosed
> with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in carrying
> for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, 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 focus 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 believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my
> life a different way from how I have lived it.
> Now that God ! has called me, I have willed and given most of my properties and
> assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close
> friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided
> to give arms to charity organizations and give succour and confort to the less
> priviledged in our societies, 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 and Malaysia. Now that my healthhas deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this
> my self 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 and to the less
> priviledged 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 fourteen
> million dollars($14m) that I have with a Security Company in Europe for safe
> keeping. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and disburse it to some
> charity organizations and to the less priviledged.
> N/B:Kindly note that 40% of this funds must go to victims of Tsunami, Hurricane
> Katrina , Hurricane Wilma and South Asia Earthquake ,50% to other Charity
> Organizations around the World and 10% for your effort and time.
> I cannot talk with you on the phone due to my health situation, as I am using my
> Lap Top Computer to communicate with you. You should respond to this e-mail if you
> are interested in carrying out this assignment on my behalf.
> Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this disbursement.
> I await to hear from you, may God be with you and your entire family.
> Remain blessed,
> Peter Walter.
