Kindest Attention:

My name is Mr. Tom Brown, I am from Nederland’s .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 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 few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and 
accept my soul so, I have decided to give aims 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, Somalia and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I 
cannot do this myself any more.
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 

Hence, I do not trust them any more, 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 Seventeen Million 
United States Dollars ($17, 000, 000, 00) that I have with an Asset Management Company in Europe 
which I deposited as Antique and Valuables. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and 
dispatch it to charity organizations.

N/B: Kindly note that 20% of this funds must go to the tsunami victims, 50% to other Charity 
Organization and 30% 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.

Urgent Reply Needed.

God be with you.

Mr. Tom Brown.
