From: Mr. John William, Brazil. Dear Sir As you read this, I don’s want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mr. John William, a merchant doing business in Asia and Middle East. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to edictal expects in a private clinic here in London, where I am presently lying on my sick bed waiting for death. 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 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 will 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 properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided to give arms to charity organizations in U.A.E, Algeria, Indonesia, India and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of my account and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization and to the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan; they refused and kept the money to there selves. Hence, I do not trust them any more, as they sin not to be contented with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposited of Fifty Six Million US Dollars that I have, deposited with a security company in Europe for safe keeping. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and disburse it to some charity organization and to the less privileged. The contact of the security company in shall be given to you to enable you make enquiries as soon as you indicate your interest to work with me and claim this consignment. But you should not disclose the content of the consignment to them, because the consignment was deposited with them as CONFIDENTIAL FAMILY TREASURES, not money for your information. Also mind you that the certificate of deposit and the necessary documents which will authorized them to open up communication is with me. Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this disbursement. I have set aside 30% for you, for your time and patience. You can e-mail me at (firstname.lastname@example.org) while I wait to hear from you, may God be with you and your entire family. Please note: I am sending you this mail secretly against my doctor’s advice to remain incommunicado with anyone, as this will deteriorate my present condition. Remain blessed.
