Dear friend,

Greetings to you in the name of our heavenly God. This mail might come to
you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come
into your mind; but please, consider it a divine wish and accept it with a
deep sense of humility. My name is Kelly Abiodun. I?m a 55 years old man. I
am British living in Dubai (United Arab Emirate). I was a merchant and owned
two businesses in Dubai. I was also married with two children. My wife and
two children died in a car accident six years ago.

Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I
lived for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the
loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I
have been helping orphans in orphanage/ motherless homes. I have donated
some money to orphans in Sudan, South Af! rica, Cameroon, Brazil, Spain,
Austria, Germany and some Asian countries. ! Before I became ill, I kept $15
Million in a long-term deposit account in a finance company .

Presently, I?m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for
oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have
told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see
this money distributed to charity organizations. Because relatives and
friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live
with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.

Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and the
interest accrued from the company and distributes it amongst charity
organizations. Use your judgment to distribute the money and feel free to
reimburse yourself when you have the money for any cost you incur during the
process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations.
I?m willing to offer you a ! reward If you are willing to help; please reply
to as soon as you can.

May the good Lord bless you and your family.

Kelly Abiodun.
