Dear Friend,

This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not
yet met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains.
As you read this, I donít want you to feel sorry for me, because, I
believe everyone will die someday. My name is lrish Malik, a merchant in
Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with prostate and oesophageal
cancer that was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my
health. It has defied 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 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 focus 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 I know my time is near, 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 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, London and Ireland. Now that
my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I
once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the
money, which I have there to charity organizations in Bulgaria, they
refused and 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. The last of my money which is the huge cash
deposit that I have with a security firm abroad .I will want you to help
me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations.  I am
writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for
my time to come. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me with
good heart. Please your reply should only be sent to my alternative mail
lrish Malik.
