Hello, My name is Mrs. Marie Roberts, , A Businesswoman I have been diagnosed esophageal Cancer that was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all form of medicine 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 focus 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 am gives a second chance to come to this world, I would live my life a different way from how I have lived. Now that I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends and Schools. 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. I have whole heartedly donated to victims of Tsunami following that unfortunate incident. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria; 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 is the huge cash deposit that I have with Financial Firm Abroad . I have set aside 20% of the total amount $1,500,000.00 One million five hundred thousand dollars) for you and your time and patience for carrying out this duties.This means you will keep $300,000 (three hundred thousand dollars) for yourself and donate the rest to any charity organisation. Kindly Contact my lawyer through this email address (email@example.com ) so that he can arrange the release of the funds I am writing this from my hospital bed where I wait for my time to come. Yours truly, Marie Roberts, NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I donít want anything that will jeopardize my last wish. And also I will be contacting you by email as i donít want anybody to know because they are always around me.
