My dear I am writing this mail with tears and sadness and pains. I know it will
come to you as a surprise since we haven't known or come across each other
before, but kindly bear with me at this moment. I have a special reason why I
decided to contact you. I do not mean to embarrass you with my proposal, but I
seriously need your assistance. My situation at hand is miserable but I trust in
God and hope you will be of help to me. My name is Andrew Cole; I have been
diagnosed with a deadly ailment that was discovered very late. It has defied all
form of medicine. I have a few months to live according to medical experts.

I want you to assist me in disbursing funds to charity organizations. I was
meditating on my sick bed and something told me that God is giving me a second
chance by keeping me alive. I have decided to donate a huge sum of money to
charity organizations. I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on
earth. I have tried to distribute money to some charity organizations in the
U.A.E, England and Ireland, but my families have not been helpful. My health is
deteriorating so badly, I really need you to help me.

You might be wondering why I did not ask my close relatives to help me. I once
asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money
which I have in the account to charity organizations in Bulgaria; they closed
the account but refused to donate the money to the organizations. Some of them
fled with part of the money while the others shared the remainder among
themselves I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contented with
what I have left for them. The last of my money which is a huge cash deposit
that I have with a financial institution abroad will be put in your care if only
you will agree. I want to make you the beneficiary to these funds so that you
can disburse 80% of it to charity organizations and keep 20% of the total funds
as a compensation for your assistance and support. I want you to assist me with
a good heart. Please contact me through my private email

Be blessed my beloved,
Andrew Cole
