Dear beloved,

My name is Hameed Toure, A Bahrain national, As you read 
this story, I do not want you to feel sorry for me as I know everyone 
will die someday. I have been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer and 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 was 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 ismore to life than just wanting to have 
or make all the money in the world.

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, Somalia 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 Eighteen Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand 
United States ($18,500,000.00) that I have with a finance House abroad. 
I will want you to help me collect this deposit and despatch it to 
charity organizations.

Please note that 20% of this funds must go to 
the hurricane katrina victims and another 25% for your effort and time 
and the remaining funds can be disbursed to other charity 

I will provide you with further details immediately I 
hear from you. Please respond through this email address as I might not 
be checking the email I used in sending this message to you:  mr.
