Dear Friend,

This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not
yet met.
After searching through your country's Chamber of Commerce and industry
here in Dubai I am contacting you to assist me, I have to say that I have
no intentions of causing you any pains as you read this. I don't want you
to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.

My name is Mr. Thomas Grey, a merchant in London, but presently taking
treatment in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. now. I have been
diagnosed with Prostate and Esophageala cancer that was discovered very
late due to my uncaring attitude 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, I was 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. 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 I know my time is near, I have willed
and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended
family members and as well as a 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 did on earth.

So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the
United Arab Emirates, London and Ireland. Now that my health has
deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked
members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money
which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria, 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 is the huge cash deposit that l have with
security firm abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
dispatched it to charity organizations and let them know that it is I
Thomas Grey 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.

You can reply me through my private email address:

As soon as l received your sincere response l shall hence disclose all
vital details to you. I pray for you to support and assist me with good

Be blessed my beloved,

Thomas Grey.
