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 Bernhard
 Imerslund a merchant and a Norwegian by nationality but presently
 Residing in (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 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 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 eighteen
 million dollars $18,000.000 that I have with a finance/Security
 Firm abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
 dispatch it to charity organizations.You can reach me on my confidential email on

 I have set aside 20% for you for your time and patience. Please
 send a reply through this email address with your full contact
 telephone/fax numbers for confidential verbal details.
 God be with you.
 Bernhard   Imerslund
