Greetings Dear Friend, Compliments of the day to you and your family. I am very sorry to embarrass you with this email as I did not mean to intrude in your privacy if not for the peculiar situation I have found myself. I have contacted you because of your resume as I believe you have what it takes to carry out the request I seek of you. I am currently suffering from a terminal disease called Hepatitis B and my doctors have informed me that I have a few months to live and I want to try and do something special with my life now that the end is near. I do not mean to make you feel bad or feel sorry for me but I believe I can make an impact in this world before I pass on as I am now a born again Christian. Before I was diagnosed with the disease I was a very successful businessman who made a lot of money but also lived a very rough life filled with too much lust for women and more money. In the course of my illness my family members have bled me dry of nearly all my possessions and abandoned me to my fate. I presently have no friend or family as I am all alone in this hospital. Luckily I have some money totaling two million five hundred thousand us dollars that I had stashed away in a finance facility somewhere in Europe and I would be willing to donate all of it to charity. All I want is for a foundation to be set up in my name so I would always be remembered for my good deeds in life after I pass on. If you are willing to assist you would get a handsome percentage of the money and also a place in heaven as God would abundantly reward you. Please get back to me ASAP so I can give you more details. Thanks and God bless you. Neilson Hylton
