Greetings dear,

This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not
met before. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any
pains so I decided to contact you through this medium. As you read this, I
don't want you to feel bad about the situation because I believe everyone 
will die someday.

My name is Rafiq Rehman, a merchant in Dubai, in the United Arab
Emirates(UAE).I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal cancer
that was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my health. It
has defiled all forms of medication 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

Although I am very rich, I was never generous, never willing to spare time
 and help people but only focused on my business as that was the only
thing I cared for.  Now I regret all these 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 if God gives me a second chance I would live my life a
different way and  lead a better life.

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 as well
as a few close friends and schools in the UAE.

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 donated money to
charity organizations in the U.A.E, London and Ireland. Now that my health
has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself any more. I once asked
members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money to
charity organizations in Bulgaria but they tricked me and embezzled the
money. 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 is the huge
cash deposit that I have with Financial Firm Abroad .I will want you to
help me collect this deposit and distribute it to charity organizations
and let them know that I, Rafiq Rehman is making this generous donation.

I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait
for my time to come since the sickness has bedridden me for several
months. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me in good heart.

God be with you
Mr. Rafiq Rehman
