My name is Mr Shadak Sheriff, A Bahrain national I have
been diagnosed with Oesophageal 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 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 moreto 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 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, Somalia 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 organization in
Bulgaria and Pakistan, 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 leftfor them. The last of my money which no one knows
of is the huge cash deposit of Eighteen Million dollars($18,000,000,00)
that I have with a finance House abroad. I will want you to help me
collect this deposit and despatch it to charity organizations.
KINDLY NOTE you can reach me back via my direct email address email@example.com and
THAT 20% of this funds must go to the tsunami victims
another 10% for your effort and time.
