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 Mr. Jamal Yusuf. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Leukemia cancer and 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 
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 also 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, Malaysia and some countries 
in Africa. 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 United States 
Dollars US$8,000,000,00 that I have with a 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, your time and also any expenses that you might incurred during this 
Great task.
God be with you.
Mr. Jamal Yusuf.
