Dear Friend, This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. After searching through the internet. I am contacting you to let us assist children of conflict, to help children affected by war and disaster, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will Die someday. Let me start by introducing my humble self, I am James Carl, a merchant here in London, presently taking medical treatment. Now, I have been diagnosed with Prostate cancer that was discovered very late due to my uncaring attitude for my health. It has defiled all form of medicine and right now, I have only about a few months to live according to medical experts. To be sincere with you, I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business and money. Though I am wealthy, 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 I know my time is almost up, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends. 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 Myanmar, Indonesia, China, and Africa at large. Now that my health has Deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked Members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money Which I have there to some charity organizations in Myanmar,Indonesia,China and Africa at large, they refused and kept the Money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be content with what I have left for them. The last of my money is the huge cash deposit ($400,000) that I have With a security firm. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations and let them know that it is I, Mr.James Carl . That is making this generous donation. I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time to come. You can reply me through my private email address: firstname.lastname@example.org As soon as I receive your sincere response, I will hence give you all the Necessary details of how this can be done. I pray that you will support And assist me with good heart so that I can be able to achieve my goal. If you accept to help me do this, I promise you a reward of 30% of the ($400,000). Thank you for understanding. James Carl . I own the under listed companies James Carl and associates James Carl Logistics (Removals, Relocation, Delivery and Storage).
