Dear Friend,
As you read this mail, I don't want you to feel sorry for me because, I believe everyone will have 
a date with destiny in his or her lifetime.
My Name is Donald Duke, an Australian Gold merchant in New England,South Africa
I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer, and this sickness has defied all forms of medical 
solution and right now I have only a few months to live according to the latest medical reports 
given to me by my doctors .
I have not really lived my life so well, as philantropism never entered my scheme of things 
throughout my glorious years as oil magnate.
I was fully obsessed by my business empire thinking, thats is all there is to life. Though very 
rich, I was never generous, and never gave minimal consideration to the suffering populace of my 
country and other sub saharan countries that need immediate financial attention.
Now that I am totally incapacitated, I have decided to "Will" my properties to my family members 
and some charity organisations.
My previous attempts to reach these organisations through my family members hit the rock as 
everybody was interested in satisfying their unending desire to acquire wealth, wealth and nothing 
but wealth, hence my decision to reach far and near looking for someone that will assist me in 
distributing a specific amount of funds to these organizations.
So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the Angola, Congo, Malaysia and 
Ethiopia and Afghanistan.
Right now, my health has deteriorated so I cannot do this myself anymore, hence my search for 
person/persons to fulfill this service of humanity.
I therefore solicite for your assistance in distribubiting the sum of US$10.5 million (Ten Point 
Five Million United States Dollars) deposited in a Finance and Security Company abroad, to some 
designated charity organizations in Africa and some Middle East countries.
I have set aside 10% of the money for your efforts to carry out this assignment and will require 
utmost confidentiality for this assignment especially with special reference to my family members 
once you agree to do this service of humanity.
If this proposal appeals to you, kindly respond as soon as possible to my consultant Barrister 
Steve Bossman on:
Ensure that you give him the following details of yours: Full Name and Contact Address, Tele/Fax 
Numbers for easy communication. Pls contact him through his direct email address.
Thanking you in anticipation of your kind cooperation and looking forward to receiving your 
response soonest.
Yours truly,
