Dear Friend,

My name is Mr Malcolm Santos I am from Portugal, Please take this serious. 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 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 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 few close friends .I want God to be merciful to me and 
accept my soul so, I have decided to give arms 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 left for them. The last 
of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Thirteen Million Five Hundred United 
States Dollars ($13,500,000,00) that I have with a Finance Vaulting Unit Abroad. I will want you to 
help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations.

Kindly note that 35% of this funds must go to the tsunami victims,55% to other Charity Organization 
and 10% for your effort and time.I cannot talk with you on the phone due to my health situation, as 
I am using my Lap Top Computer to communicate with you. You should respond to this e-mail if you 
are interested in carrying out this assignment on my behalf.

God be with you.

Mr.Malcolm Santos
