Dear Friend,
Good day and God bless you. I feel quite safe and satisfy dealing with
you in this charity project. Though, this medium (Internet) has been 
greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still
remains the fastest,surest and most secured medium of communication.
However, this correspondence is purely private, and it should be
treated as such,i apologize if the content here under are contrary to your moral ethics,but i had to reach you through this medium As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me,because, I know everyone will die someday.My name is Mr. John calton a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal 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 more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.I have decided to give alms to charity organizations,as I want this 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, Algeria 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 all my accounts and sell off all my properties and distribute the money to charity organizations and keep only a certain % to themselves but they refused and with aid of my lawyer they
kept the money to them selves.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
Five million dollars $5,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security
Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
dispatch it to charity organizations.I have set aside 10% for your time.
God be with you.
for my own convenience
