FROM ALHASSAN BALA MOHAMMED Private Email: email@example.com Dear friend, Let me introduce my self to you, I am Alhassan Bala Mohammed. I have a serious sickness which has failed all medical treatment and right now I have only about a few months more to live on this earth, I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so; I have decided to give alms to the less privilege around the world, as I want this to be one of the last of my good deeds on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some organizations in the Asia, Pakistan and Sudan. 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 a motherless baby's home 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 no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of U.S$ 10m (Ten million United States Dollars) in two metallic trunks. This trunks were deposited in 2004 with a trusted Security Company abroad. I want you to help me collect the trunks and dispatched the funds therein to reputable charity organizations. I have also set out 10% of this money to be giving to the less privileged in Sri lanka, Indonesia and Thailand 10% has being set aside for you and for your time. If this proposition interest you,and you really want to assist me, kindly forward the following information to me: Your name, telephone number(s) and residential address. Please understand that these requested information will enable me gain trust and confidence in you as need to prepare all documents in your favor to make you the new beneficiary to the trunks. Note that I made the deposit as a diplomatic consignment and no one is aware of the content except you. Kindly respond through my private e-mail address.
