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 i will 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. Email (Private): firstname.lastname@example.org Kind Regards, Mr.Alhassan Bala Mohammed.
