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. My name is Mr.John Spencer, a 
merchant in London, but taking treatment in Dubai, in the U.A.E. now I have been diagnosed  with 
prostate and  esophageal cancer that was discovered very late due to lack of caring for my  health. 
It has defiled all form 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, Iwas 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.
Recently, I use to say to my self that if God should give me a second chance I would have live it 
differently way from how I have lived.I was meditating on my hospital bed and something told me 
that God is giving me a second chance by keeping me alive though doctors said I wonít last  long.
I know my time is near, thatís why I have willed and  given most of my properties and assets to my 
immediate and extended family members  and as well as some 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. 
And I have also met two people on the net who have helped me distribute money to charity 
organizations in their  country. Now myhealth is deteriorating so badly, I really need you to  help 
me distribute  the last of my fortune. You might be wondering why  I did not ask my close relatives 
to pick over this task.
But 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 closed the account but refused to donate 
the money  to the organizations, some of them even fled away with some of the money  while the rest 
 shared the remaining among money among themselves.  From the way they are acting around me tells 
that they want me dead  so that they can talk about inheritance. Hence, I do not trust them  
anymore, as they seem not to be content with what I have left for  them. The last of my money which 
 is a huge cash deposit that I have  with a security firm abroad will be put  in your care if only 
you will agree.

I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and let them 
know that it is I John Spencer  that 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.

I pray for you to support and assist me with a good heart.  But  the  choice is yours

Please you can contact me through this email

Be blessed my beloved,

John L. Spencer.
