PLEASE READ AND RESPOND TO MY CRY !!! Dear beloved one... As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Nick Benson, a merchant in Brazil. 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 was 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 also 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 U.A.E, Haiti,chile 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 organizations in Asia and U.K, 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 U.S$ 18m (Eighteen million United States Dollars) in two metallic trunks. This trunks were deposited in 2004 with a trusted Security Company in Europe. I want you to help me collect the trunks and dispatched the funds therein to reputable charity organizations. I have set aside 10% for you and 5% to settle any expenses including your phone bills or any incured expenses. May the Lord be with you. Please reach me through my personal email address of: firstname.lastname@example.org Remember to keep this known to yourself alone and I for now, as I am doing this as a contribution to life on earth. I will also appreciate if you provide me with the following informations, so that i can put you through the whole process. (1) Your complete names (2) Your private phone numbers including mobile (3) Your present contact address I will really appreciate your quick response. Once again this is my personal e-mail address: email@example.com God bless you, Mr.Nick Benson
