Dear Friend
My name is Engr Tomas Helstrum, A Swedish national 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 if 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 has called me, I have willed and given most of my property  and assets to 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 the last good deeds I do on  earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity Organizations in the U.A.E, Somalia 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 them self.

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 Twenty Eight Million dollars ($28, 000, 0 00, 00) that I have with a finance House  Abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. N/B: KINDLY NOTE THAT 20% of these funds must go to the TSUNAMI  VICTIMS; also 20% should go to the HURRICANE VICTIMS in the United State of  America and another 10% for your effort and time. You can also reach me through this email address
I await your prompt response.
