Hope this day finds you well?, Am Mr HASSAN IBRAHIM a merchant from Dubia,
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 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 is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.
Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and asse ts 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 also 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, Algeria, India 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. I will want you to help me collect my last deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations which I deposited in security/finance house abroad,
Which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of (Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand U
.S dollars) I have set aside 25% for you, then 5% for any expenses insured.
Mr. Hassan Ibrahim
