Hello Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics
although, I wish to use this medium to get in touch with you first because
it's fastest means. I believe it will be a surprise to you as we have never

Please forgive this unusual manner of contacting you. My name is Al Walid
A Saudi Arabia national. I have been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer .
It has defied 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
Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and
focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret
this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make
the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to
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 U.A.E, Somalia 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 Six
Million dollars ($6,000,000.00) that I have with financial institution
abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to
charity organizations.
N/B: KINDLY NOTE THAT 80% of these funds must go to victims of recent
disasters and another 20% for your effort and time. Upon receipt of your
response, I shall communicate with you, and let you know the details of the
transfer. Whatever your actions and your decision, I thank you for taking
the time to read this email
