Peace be with you, Sorry for contacting you in this manner.i am presently hospitalised in Bahrain for Squamous cell Carcinoma(Cancer of the throat).I discovered your contact information by accident through a search engine while trying to locate a long lost friend.I felt you might be interested in assisting me in completing a task that is of utmost importance.Due to the terminal state of my illness i have a short time to live and i have a cash deposit of twenty million U.S dollars in a deposit company in Europe whose maturation date will soon expire and has to be urgently retrieved. I have no legal heir and the behaviour of my extended family members in recent times made me loose my trust on them.what the situation requires is that i nominate a claimant to this deposit which nobody else knows about for now.i have a contact in the deposit company who will faciltate the process of retrieving the deposit and transfer of the funds.I have no use for money for myself anymore,so i would like you to disburse 70% of the fund to charity organisations and 25% for your efforts after completing the process and the rest 5% for my contact in the deposit company who will faciltate the hitch-free completion of the process. This is totally legal and safe as you will see, it only requires absolute trust, transparency. And also confidentiality due to the large amount involved and the recent inter-governmental interests in international funds movement.With this i am sure you can now understand that the need for absolute confidentiality cannot be overstressed.All i require from you is sincerity and dedication. If you can do this just send a reply through this email address for further details. Yours Sincerely, Salaam
