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 AZIZ AL SHERIFF, a merchant in Safat,in (Kuwait)I was 
married with two children.
My wife and two children died in a car accident six years a go. 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 
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 twenty million united states dollars 
that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit 
and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside only 10 % for you and for your time.
Reply me at your earliest conveniece for more directives.

God be with you.
