Dear friend, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Abdul Karim, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with lung 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 or anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I as never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on y 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 as called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets of my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of he last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to 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 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 hem anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left or them. The last of my money, which no one knows of, is the huge cash deposit of Ten million US dollar US$10,000,000), that I have with a Secret Bank abroad. Acknowledge this message so that I can instruct the deposit bank to wire the funds into your account. I will want you to help me collect this deposit cash and use it for charity organizations. For this reason kindly furnish your contact information, that is your address, personal telephone and fax umber for confidential purpose. Reply to my private email address: email@example.com God be with you. Abdul Karim
