Dear Friend,

Good day, as you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because,
I believe everyone will die someday.  My name is Edward Dennis; I am a
business merchant of Norway nationality but presently residing in Britain.

I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.  It has defiled all forms of
medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live,
according to medical experts. 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 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 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 when God
gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life 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 as well as a few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, 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 the Norway, Oman, Algeria and Malaysia.

Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself
anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and
distribute the money, which I have there to charity organization 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 contended with
what I have left for them. The last of my money, which no one knows of, is
the huge cash deposit of Six Million United States Dollars: 6, 000, 000, 00
that I have with a Bank. I will want you to help me collect this deposit
and dispatch it to charity organization. N/B: Kindly note that 25% of this
funds must go to the tsunami victims, 60% to other charity organization and
15% for your effort and time, as I am using my Lap Top computer to
communicate with you.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to
charity organizations.

Note: You should please respond to my email if you are interested in
carrying out this assignment on my behalf God be with you.

Edward Dennis.
