LONDON I want the creator to be merciful to me and accept my soul when I die. Therefore, I have decided to willed and given most of my property and assets to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have also distributed money to some charity organizations in the LONDON and to some displaced persons in Darfur Sudan. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. Basically, I still have a huge cash deposit of ($10,000,000,00) with a Finance Consulting Firm abroad. I am appealing to you to help me and dispatch it to charity organizations of your choice. You will take 50% of the total fund, while 50% will be for charity organization.Please if you are willing to be of help kindly send your direct contact telephone number, Nationality/address and age to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanking you for your understanding and concern, I look forward to your earliest reply. Yours truly, JOHN KING.
