Dear Friend, My name is Mr. Alexis Simon I am merchant of Omani nationality.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 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,the Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth and 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 eighteen million dollars 18,000,000.000 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my relatives and my late wife relatives are not Christians and I don't want my hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers . I lost my late wife 3years ago and we were married for eleven years without a child she died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/Security Company Europe. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. I will want you to email me via my private email :email@example.com I have set aside 20% for you and for your time. God be with you. Mr. Alexis Simon
