Dear Friend, My name is Mark Brown,a merchant in Spain.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.It has defiled 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 business. Though I was very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused 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 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 also 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, Algeria 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 organizations in Asia and U.K, 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 ten million dollars $10,000,000.00 that I have with a finance institution in Europe. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatche it to charity organizations. I have set aside 20% for you once you do this for me.May the Lord be with you.Please remember to keep this known to yourself alone and I for now,as I am doing this as a contribution to life on earth.I will also appreciate if you provide me with your contact phone numbers,so that i can call you and put you through the whole process.I will really appreciate your quick response. Yours Faithfully, Mark Brown. PLEASE REPLY TO MY PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS:email@example.com
