ÂÂ Dear Friend.
 As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die 
someday. My name is Stan Benson, a merchant in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). I 
have been diagnosed with O esophageal Cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in 
caring for my health. It has defied all forms of treatments and therapy, and right now I have only 
about a few months to live, according to medical experts.
ÂÂÂ I have not lived my life particularly 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 frankly 
regret all that 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 into this world, I would 
live my life in 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 and as 
well as a few close friends.
ÂÂÂ I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul, and so I have decided to give my life-long 
accumulated wealth to charity organizations in order that it would give succor and comfort to the 
less privileged in our societies, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I did on earth. 
So far, I have distributed money to some charitable organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and 
Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I can no longer do this myself. I once 
asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there 
to charities and to the less privileged 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 contented with what I have 
left for them.
ÂÂÂ The last of my money which no one knows of is a huge cash deposit of twenty four million 
dollars that I have with a Security Company in Europe for safe keeping. I will want you to help me 
collect this deposit and disburse it to some charitable organizations and to the less privileged. 
Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this disbursement. I have set aside 10% 
for you for your time and patience. While I wait to hear from you, may God be with you and your 
entire family.
ÂÂÂ Remain blessed.
