Dear Friend, Greetings to you and your family in the name of God.I am personally contacting you in my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and painstaking efforts I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my last wish .My name is Robert Chavez, 47 yrs old and an American national who lived in Iraq. Until recently I had investments in oil and construction in Baghdad. Since the war started in this country my life has been thrown into severe mystery. I lost my wife and two children to bombs dropped in the city. Today, I?m in a hospital in Demark with very fatal injuries and I have lost my ability to talk. My doctors have indicated that my chances of survival are very slim. I have therefore decided that part of my fortunes should be distributed to charity works to help victims of the war in sudan, iraq and other war zones and the rest part held in trust by you and use in future for charity purpose. Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I lived for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families and victims of humanitarian crisis. Shortly after the first gulf war I deposited the sum of USD$8.5 million dollars with a financial company in Europe,given the complete ruin and disorder in the country I have no knowledge of any relative who would be available to help me carry out this last wish. Please I want you to help me collect the deposit from the company in Europe and distribute it accordingly. I want you to use your discretion and judgement to re-emburse yourself at the end of the day for all expenses you will incure during the collection and distribution of funds. If you are willing to help, please reply as soon as you can so we can look at your reward and the things you need to do to collect the money. Lastly, A list of this orgainization you intend to distribute this funds to will be highly appreciated. Upon your reply I shall send you the certifiate of deposit and ownership certificate that was issued at the time I deposited the Funds with them. I will also be sending to you my international passport upon your reply. May the good God bless you and your family. Endeavour to reply through my secured email address;email@example.com Thanks/ Regards.
