Dear Friend, Greetings to you, my name is Mrs. Carol Lamir widow to late Mr.Hassan Lamir former owner of Petroleum & Gas Company here in Kuwait . I am 68 years old, suffering from long time Cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obviousthat I won't live more than 2 months according to my doctors. This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don't want you to pity me, but I need your assistance and trust. My late husband died early last year from Heart attack, and during the period of our Marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth.The doctor has advised me that I will not live for more than 2 months, so I have now decided to spread all my wealth to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America , Asia, Africa and Europe . Am sorry if you are embarrassed by my mail, I found your e-mail address in the web directory, and I have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive, please you can ignore it and please accept my apology. Before my late husband died he deposited the sum of Twenty million United States dollars (USD$20.000.000.00 Million) in a Finance Firm in Europe some years ago, that's all I have left now, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charity, so that when I die my soul can rest in peace. The funds will be entirely in your hands and management. I hope God gives you the wisdom to touch many lives. That is my main concerned 20% of this money will be for your time and effort,while 5% will be set aside for any miscellaneous expenses that may be incurred and the remaining 75% goes to charities that will appreciate your assistance for this projects. Please reply back to me on this e-mail: The doctor has stopped me from receiving and making calls due to my health condition. God bless you. Best Regards Mrs Carol Lamir
