Dear friend,

This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the
fact that we have not
yet met. I have to say that I
have no intentions of causing you any pains.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for
me,because, I believe
everyone will die someday. My name
is MrJohn Spelling,a merchant in london, but taking
treatment in dubai,in the U.A.E. now I have been,
diagnosed with prostate and esophageala cancer
that was discovered very late due to my a 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
any one 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 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 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.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, London and Ireland. 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 security firm
Abroad .I will want you to help me collect this
deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and
let them know that it is I John Spelling that is
making this generous donation. I am writing this from my
laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for
my time to come. I pray for you to support and
assist me with good heart.

be blessed my beloved,

John Spelling.
