Dear Friend.,
 I am Thomas James., A Portugal national 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. I am 
very rich, but was never generous; I have given most of my assets to my immediate family members.
I have decided to give alms to charity organizations. I cannot do this myself
anymore because of my health. I once asked members of my family to give some money to charity 
organizations, they refused and kept the money. I have a huge cash deposit of Eighteen Million 
dollars with a finance House abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch 
it to charity organizations. You will take out 20% of these funds for your assistance. 

Thomas James
