My name is William Stevenson a British merchant formally based in Dubai.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal 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 business.
Though I am 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 ore 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 Is About To Call 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 Africa and Asia including the Tsunami victims.
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 to charity organization instead they kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contented with what I have left for them.
Presently, I am still have a deposit with a bank that is yet to be disposed of. I Beg You In The name of God to Help Me Take The Money To Any Orphanage Home Close To You. I Believe That You Would Offer This Service For Humanity Sake. If You Can Help Me. Get Back To me.May the Good Lord Bless You And Your Family.Please get back to me via my personal email: steveswill_122@yahoo..com
I Await Your Response.
Thanks and best Regards,
