Dear Friend,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will 
die someday. My name is Petermann Klaus a merchant in London, the United Kingdom 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 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 united 
states dollars 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 also set out 10% of this 
money to be giving to the less privileged in Sri lanka,indonesia and Thailand 15% has being 
set aside for you and for your time. 

You are to respond through my personal and safe email address. God be with you.



Mr. Petermann Klaus.
