-- Dear Beloved, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is AHMED HASSAN a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. 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 am 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 into 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 alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I have done on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria 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 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. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Twenty One million dollars $21,000,000,00 that I have with a finance Company abroad.I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside 25% for you and for your time. NOTE; IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY THROUGH MY PRIVATE EMAIL:email@example.com Regards Mr. Ahmed Hassan.
