This is a personal message sent to you and should be treated as such and i am very sorry about my manners of approach ,As you read this,I know you will be surprised to read from me, but please consider this as a request from me personally but also I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Nurat Najaf a merchant in Dubai,in the U.A.E. I worked with Kuwait oil Company and also eight years as a contractor.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 was 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 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 property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends.So, 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 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 only person I would have trusted to do this with is my lawyer but he is a very busy man as he is occupied with other official tasks, thus he would not have the time to assist me with this mission as i want to see this done before my death. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of eight million dollars $8,000,000.00 that I have with a finance/Security Company . I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence i know where i am going.I know that i am going to be in the bossom of the creator .I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of relatives around me.I do not want them to know about his development has i do not trust them anymore, as they seems not to be contended with what i have left for them. I have set aside 20% for you and for your time.Upon your reply i shall also issue to you a email with Authority on it that would enable you contact my lawyer . Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a non-governmental, or a non religious, and or a non profit organization or better still an individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein.I shall give you more details once you reply this mail .Hope to hear from you soon. Best Regards... Nurat Najaf .
