Dear Friend, Good day brother and may the peace of God be with you. I feel quite safe and satisfied dealing with you in this charity project. Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, But 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, 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. Mr. Salim Azeez Jarvi 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 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 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 no one knows of is the huge cash Deposit of over three hundred thousands pounds which is half a million dollars( $730,000.00 )that I have with a finance firm in the united kingdom. I will want you to help me deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. I have set aside 10% for your time. God be with you. Mr. Salim Azeez Jarvi
