FROM :Mr.Campbell William EMAIL:email@example.com CITY :Manchester City (WA) 20515 Greetings, As you read this do not feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone must die one day, Introducing myself, My name is Mr. Campbell William, from New Zealand, based in London. I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in carrying for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have since lost my power of speech and can only manage to write now, as that has been the only way I am able to communicate. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business. Though I am rich, never generous, I am, always hostile to people and only focus on my business as that is the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this 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 if God can give me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived before. Now that I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and also close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul, now I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in UK, Brazil and Ireland. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and South Africa, 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 left for them. My last money which only few of them knew of is the huge cash deposited with my Bank in UK LONDON. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. If you are willing and able to assist me, kindly reply me through this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Regards, Mr. Campbell William.
