Dear Friend, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me because I believe everyone will die someday. My name is El-Hassan Ahmed,I am a merchant in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirate.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late due to my laxity in carrying for my health.It has defiled all forms of medicine 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 my primary interest and focus was only my business.Though I am very rich,I was never generous.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 it is obvious that God has called me,I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends.I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and I have decided to give arms to charity organizations and give succour and confort to the less priviledged in our societies.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 here in the U.A.E. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly,I cannot do this my self anymore.I once asked a member of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money to three charity organizations and to the less priviledged in Bulgaria and Pakistan he refused and kept the money to himself.Hence I do not trust him anymore as he seem not to be contended with what I have left for him. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Fourteen Million Two Hundred United State Dollars (14.2m USD) that I have with a Security Company in Europe for safekeeping.I will want you to help me collect this deposit and disburse it to some charity organizations and to the less priviledged in your country. Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this disbursement.I have set aside 20% for you for your time and patience.If you are willing and ready to assist with this project,pls e-mail me without delay at: firstname.lastname@example.org While I await to hear from you,may God guide and reward you in all your endevours as you make me realise my last dreams and wishes. Remain blessed. Dr.El-Hassan Aziz
