Assalamualaikum ,

 My name is SALIM IBRAHIM a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.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 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 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 (Twenty  million five 
hundred 
thousand u.s dollars) that I have with a finance/Security  Company abroad. I will want you to help 
me 
collect this consignment and dispatched.
 
 Allah be with you.
