Subject: Dear friend,

  Dear friend,    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. My name is Mr. Mark Larson, a merchant  in London, but  taking treatment in Dubai, in the U.A.E. now I have  been diagnosed with  prostate and esophageal cancer that was discovered  very late due to  lack of 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  medicial 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 that matters to me. But now I regret all this as I now  know that there is more to  life than just wanting to have all the money  in the world.      Recently, I use to say to my self that if God should  give me a second  chance I would have live it differently way from how I  have lived. I  was meditating on my hospital bed and something told  me that God is  giving me a second chance by keeping me alive though  doctors said I  won’t last long. I know my time is near, that’s why I  have willed and  given part of my estate to my immediate  and extended  family members and as well as some 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, London and  Ireland. And I  have also met two people through the net who have helped me  distribute  money to charity organizations in their country. Now  my health is  deteriorating so badly,    I really need you to help me distribute the last of my  fortune. You  might be wondering why I did not ask my close  relatives to pick up  this task. But I once asked members of my family to  close one of my  accounts and donate the money, which I have there to  charity  organizations in Bulgaria ; they closed the account  but did not  donate the money to the organizations, some of them  even fled away with  some of the money while the rest shared the remaining  among themselves.   From the way
 they acting around  me tells that  they want me dead so that they can take over my estate.   Hence, I do  not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be content  with what I have  left for them. The last of my money which is a huge  cash deposit that  I have with a security firm abroad will be put in your  care if only  you will agree.    I want you to help me collect this deposit and  dispatched it to charity  organizations and let them know that it is I Mark  Larson that is  making this generous donation. I am writing this from  my laptop  computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time  to come.    I pray for you to support and assist me with a good  heart. But the  choice is yours    Please you can contact me through this email address:    Be blessed my beloved,    Mark Larson.
