Asalam alaikum Friend,

My name is Hashem Ahmed 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 onlyabout 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 
all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money 
in the 

I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different 
from how I have lived it. Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property 
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. 
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 
The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash  of (Twenty million five hundred 
thousand u.s dollars) that I have in a fixed deposit account with a finance/Security firm abroad. I 
want you to help me put claim to  this funds that i have with the finance/security firm abroad and 
dispatched it to charity  organizations. I have set aside 15% for you and for your time. 
God be with you. 
Hashem Ahmed
Please do get back to me with this email so i could give you 
the full details about the funds.
