My Dear,

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. Fidel Fernando, a
merchant doing business in Asia and middle East. I have been diagnosed
with Esophageal Cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity
in caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right
now I have only about a few months to live, according to edictal experts
in a private clinic here in London, where I am presently lying on my sick
bed waiting for death.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 will
live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has
called me, 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 want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided
to give arms to charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria, Indonesia,
India and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot
do this myself any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of
my accounts and distribute the money, which I have there to charity
organization and to the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan; they
refused and kept the money to selves.Hence, I do not trust them any more,
as they seem not to be contented with what I have left for them.

The last of my money, which no one knows about, is the huge cash deposit
of Fifty Six Million US Dollars that I have, deposited with a security
company in London for safekeeping. I will want you to help me collect this
deposit and disburse it to some charity organizations and to the less
privileged.The contact of the security company in London would be given to
you for enquiry as soon as you indicate your interest to work with me and
collect those boxes.

But do not open up the content of the consignment to them, because the
consignment was deposited with them as CONFIDENTIAL FAMILY TREASURES, not
money for your information. Also mind you that the certificate of deposit
and the necessary document which will authorized them to open up
communication are with me.Please send me a mail to indicate if you will
assist me in this disbursement.I have set aside 30% for you, for your time
and patience.may God be with you and your entire family.Please note: I am
sending you this email secretly against my doctor?s advice to remain
incommunicado with anyone, as this will deteriorate my present condition.

Remain blessed.
Mr. Fidel Fernando
