Dear Beloved, I greet you in the name of God Almighty. I got your contact through prayers and painstaking efforts in my search for a reliable and God fearing person to help me carry out my last wish.My name is Mr.Mohammed Abubakar from United Arab Emirates presently, I am in London where I am receiving medical care. Prior to my ailment, I was a merchant and business owner in malaysia and Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. I was also married with five children. My wife and five children died in a bomb blast in Iraq where there reside four years ago. Before this happened, my business and concern for making money was all I lived for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have been helping rphans in orphanage/motherless homes. I have also donated some money for umanitarian needs in some African countries. Only recently, I saw on television the colossal loss of properties and livelihood of people in Canberra, Australia through Water flood. I was moved with great pity and compassion that I decided to make a contribution on assisting people over there,Before I became ill, I kept $20,000,000 Million in a finance company.Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to the needy and other charity organizations. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit from the finance company and distribute it accordingly. Use your judgment to distribute the money and keep 20% of it to yourself.If you are willing to help, please forward to me your (1)FULL NAME,(2)HOME ADDRESS,(3) OCCUPATION,(4)DATE OF BIRTH,(5) TELEPHONE/FAX NUMBER for easy communication and to prepare the vital documents in your name as the soul beneficiary of the funds. Note please reply to my private e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org May God Bless you as you assist me in carrying out my last wish. Regards, Mohammed Abubakar
