From: Daniel Wilson Reply to:email@example.com My sincere regards, I know this may seem like a complete intrusion into your privacy but right now this is the only option of communication available to me. My name is Daniel Wilson, from Sydney, Australia. I am sending you this email from the confines of my hospital room, I have been diagnosed to be suffering from Oesophageal Cancer, to my greatest bewilderment; my doctor informed me that I have only a few months to live due to the spread of the cancer to other areas of my throat and upper chest. The news was so devastating to me, that I decided to stay within the confinement of my hospital room and live out my last days on earth quietly. I asked that my hospital room be equipped with a laptop so that I can take care of some outstanding issues. One of which is my desire to donate a sizable amount of money to cancer research institutes and other deserving charity organizations. I wish that you receive the funds, and assist me in disbursing the funds to the above mentioned organizations. Please, donít mind the time taken from your busy schedule to work with me on this sole act of charity, because I will surely compensate you for your time and assistance. Indicate your wiliness to assist me by sending an email to my private email box (firstname.lastname@example.org) by doing so I will be able to send you more details. Kind Regards, Daniel Wilson
