This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet
met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i
decided to contact you through this medium.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe
everyone will die someday. My name is Karim Malik Nima, a merchant in Dubai,
in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal Cancer that
was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled
all form 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 if i
have a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way
from how I have lived it. Now that I know my time is near, 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 and Schools in the UAE. 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, England and Ireland. Now that my health has
deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked members
of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have
there to charity organization in Bulgaria, 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 is the
huge cash that I deposit in a bank in England Uk.

I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity
organizations and let them know that it is I Karim Malik Nima that is making this
generous donation.

I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed in England where I
wait for my time to come. If you are interested to help me i will give you more
information about this like the amount that i deposited in the bank and Contact of
the bank so you can contact them. I will also send you pictures of my self when
in the hospital.

Note that you will take 20% out of the funds and give 80% to the charity
organizations. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me with good
heart God be with you.

If you can help respond back to me on my private email:

Karim Malik Nima
