Dear beloved
As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me because I 
believe everyone will die someday.My name is William Simon I a merchant of 
Omani nationality.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.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 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.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 Oman,Algeria 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 fifteen million seven 
hundred thousand dollars 15.7 million US that I have with a 
finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit 
and dispatche it to charity organisations.I have set aside 20% for you 
and for your time.Please contact me through my private 
email;( be with you.
William Simon
