Dear friend, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mr.Mark Spencer .I am 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. God be with you. Mark Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org
