My dear friend, I have received your mail and i must first of all show my appreciation ,over the fact that you have given heed to the entreaty of a dying man. Like i had told you in my previous mail, i lived a very reckless life when it mattered most. All i thought about was my various investments, it is that same care free attitude that is going to cost me a lot now. When i discovered this ailment, it dawned on me that i had been living a very vain life.Then the need to affect the lives of those in need became very paramount in my thoughts. This appears to be a case of mercy after death as i no longer have the strength to do those things i used to do when i was still very full of life. My dear friend , in my resolve to actualize my dying wish, i have been able to support charity to a very large extent around the middle east and europe. Then my health became a sorry tale, that at this particular point in time, i live at the mercy of various drugs and operations which certainly can not remedy anything. My close family members are however not happy with the way i have disbursed everything of mine to the motherless babies and the less privileged. That was why they failed to help me actualise my dream of supporting charity. They held for themselves the funds i made available and went as far as even trying to terminate my life when the hour(though very short )has not come. All relationship with me has been severed ,and they are of the opinion that the last of my fortune has been spent. Incidentally, the sum of twenty four million dollars (united states) lies in a security company in Europe , and well packaged in a consignment. That is the last i have here on earth after my medical bills have been estimated and all expenses paid pending when i shall be no more. These funds i wish to entrust to you , to help propagate the works of charity where ever your location is. By so doing, i would need your utmost sincerity and honesty to carry the venture along successfully. It would be required of you to furnish me with your full names and address, telephone and fax numbers , to enable me put a letter to the security company, making you the eligible beneficiary to the funds with them. Once this is done, you shall make arrangements with them on how the funds would be transferred to your location. I beg of you to deal with me honestly and render me your assistance to the fullest of your capacity. you would be helping a dying man. Most importantly you would be touching the lives of a huge number of people. I hope i would be able to count on you while i wait impatiently for the time to come. My bones are slowly cleaving to my skin. I hope to hear from you as soon as possible. Warmest Regards, Larry Moore.
