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 

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

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.
