MY TRUE STORY !!! Private Email: email@example.com Dear friend, Let me introduce my self to you,I am Alhassan Bala Mohammed. 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 have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer . It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months more to live on this earth, I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so; I have decided to give alms to charity organizations round the world, as I want this to be one of the last of my good deeds on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan and Sudan. 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 , 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 U.S 17.5m Dollars in two metallic trunks. This trunks were deposited in 2002 with a trusted Security Company abroad. I want you to help me collect the trunks and dispatched the funds therein to reputable charity organizations. I have also set out 10% of this money to be giving to the less privileged in Sri lanka, indonesia and Thailand 10% has being set aside for you and for your time. If this proposition interest you,and you really want to assist me,kindly forward the following information to me: (1) Your present contact address. (2) Your private phone numbers including mobile. (3) Your private fax number. (4) Your complete names starting with your surname first. You should understand that these information requested will enable me to prepare the letter of authority in your favor and as well enhance communication with the security company, making you the new beneficiary to the trunks. Note that I made the deposit as a diplomatic consignment and no one is aware of the content except you. You are to respond through my personal and safe email address. God be with you.
