Dear Friend, I hope this mail gets to you in the best frame of mind. I am sorry if I am intruding into your privacy by contacting you since we do not know each other physically. The fact is that I have been directed by the spirit of humanity to you hoping you will be fair enough to respond to this task that I shall be putting forward to you. As you rightly know, our today's world is govern by greed, wickedness, hostility and hatred. People no longer feel safe dealing with close friends,relatives, neighbours and loved ones and trust are often betrayed by people you least expected. I am sorry for not introducing myself to you before now. I am Saddiq Al-Tayyib from Riyahd, Saudi Arabia. I do not fancy racial discrimination and am not a religious fanatist sso if you are one of those that thinks his or her religion or race is superior to that of other persons, please do me the favour of not replying this mail. I have spent 57 good years in this world and have witness the beautiful and ugly sides of life. I have learnt not to view life from one perspective because life itself is very unpredicatble. My reason for contacting you is to combine our ideas and dedication to touch the lives of the less-privilege in some part of the world so that a good name and legacy would be left after our time on earth. I am actually in the hospital sending this mail to you as I have experienced one trauma after the other. Medical experts have informed me I might never live to survive this ailment that has plagued the last few years of my life. This is because this deadly ailment has affected my vital organs. Somehow, I now feel safer dealing with strangers than people I know due to constant betrayals I have received from loved ones. Nowadays, only few people think about assisting orphanage homes and other charity organisations around the world due to self-centredness. The rich are getting richer at the expense of the poor. Please respond to this mail as soon as you finish reading to let me know your opinion about assisting the less-privilege and if you have given it a thought to help them one way or the other. I have a dream to share with you and I hope and pray I am communicating with the right person. Thanks for now as I await your soonest reponse with your Full Names, Address, Phone/Fax Number and Country. Your response should be sent to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your anticipated response and do have a great day. Regards Saddiq Al-Tayyib
