Dear Friend, Your first reaction to this mail will be total rejection, scare and may be unbelief, owing largely to the atrocities people commit these days. But this mail comes from a devastated, sorrowful and emotional laden soul that needs compassion from a kind and good spirited person to wipe away my tears, perhaps when I am gone beyond this sinful world. As an international subject, therefore, with due respect and apology, I want you to handle it very discreetly, confidentially and with utmost secret. As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Richard Morgan a merchant in Dubai,in the U.A.E.I worked with Zambian Ministry of Mining and Resources for eight years as a contractor, 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 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 alms 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, 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 Eight million Five Hundred United States dollars $8,500,000,00 that I have with a Finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside 20% for you;10% for My lawyer and the the balance 70% should be used for sponsoring charity organisations all over the world and for enhancing the life of the less priviledge people in the world. Please if you are able to render me this assistance i will advise that you immediately establish contact with my lawyer NAME:Mr.Graham Stephens TEL:31 647 398 293 EMAIL:email@example.com He has been my family legal adviser for the past 14 years and i repose a lot of trust in him and i believe that he will be able to guide you through completion of the transaction with the security company. God be with you. Richard Morgan KINDLY RESPOND TO:firstname.lastname@example.org
