Dear friend,

greetings to you in the name of our heavenly God.This mail might come to
you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come
into your mind; but please, consider it a divine wish and accept it with a
deep sense of humility. My name is William Mark I,m a 55 years old man. I
am British living in Dubai (United Arab Emirate). I was a merchant and
owned two businesses in Dubai.

I was also married with two children. My wife and two children died in a
car accident six 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 orphans in orphanage/
motherless homes. I have donated some money to orphans in Sudan, South
Africa, Cameroon, Brazil, Spain, Austria, Germany and some Asian
countries. Before I became ill, I kept $4.5 Million in a long-term deposit
account in a finance/security company .

Presently, I,m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for
oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors
have told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to
see this money distributed to 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 and
the interest accrued from the company and distributes it amongst charity
organizations.  your share of  will be 30% of the total  money for your
help and  for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and
distributing the money to charity organizations.

    I,m willing to offer you a reward If you are willing to help please
reply as soon as you can. May the good Lord bless you and your

William mark
