Dear Friend, It is indeed my pleasure to write you this letter, which I believe will be a surprise to you as we have never meet before and I am deeply sorry if I have in any manner disturbed your privacy. Please forgive this unusual manner of contacting you, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me,because, I believe everyone will die someday, and am contacting you because i really do need your help, and i want you to help me with all your effort and time for just seven to fourteen workings days of your time. I want you to be honest and truthful with me that you will help me with my last wish as a dying man. I am Mr.Saeed Ahmed a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. November 13,2009 I lost my wife and my only son in a car accident ever since then, I have decided not to remarry again because i love my wife so much. February 2010 i was 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 a deposit of Eighteen Million Dollars $18,000,000,00 in side two boxes that I have with a Finance/bank Abroad. I will want you to Act as my Beneficiary who will help me contact the Finance/ bank Abroad on my behalf to discuss the terms and condition of getting this deposit money out from their custody and also helping me to dispatch it to different charity organizations which i will render to you later Because this is one thing that will make me die a happy man The reason why i can't allow any member of my family to assist in to get my money from the Finance/bank Abroad is because I have once asked members of my family to close one o f 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. I have set aside 30% for you and for your time. Do get back if you are interested so i can ask my lawyer to arrange for you a power of attorney that will give you full legal backing as my beneficiary. Kindly get back to me with trust and sincerity that you will help me on this regards. Here is my personal mail box: firstname.lastname@example.org Regards. Mr.Saeed Ahmed.
