As you read this, don't feel sorry for me, because it is the destiny of
everyman to die someday. I am Mr. David Weir a business merchant in the
United Kingdom. I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has defiled
all forms of treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to
live, according to medical experts. I regret that I have not particularly
lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself),
but my trade. Though I am fortunate to be very well to do, I was never open
handed; I was always hostile to people and regarded them like they never had
hopes of becoming as successful as myself. Now I know that there is a lot
more to life than just prosperity. 

I believe that when I am given a second chance to come to this world, I
would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that death
is eminent, I have willed and given most of my belonging to immediate and
extended family members, as well as a few close friends. I want god to be
merciful to me and accept my soul. Hence I have decided to support charity
work; this is what i want to be remembered for. So far, I have been able to
reach out to charity organizations here in the U.K and a few in 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 aid me in giving of alms to those
organizations catering for the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan; but
they refused and kept the resources to themselves. I have come to a point
where i have decided to not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be
contented with what I have left for them. The last of my belonging which no
one knows of, is the huge deposit of eigteen milion US dollars that I have
in a safe keeping company, which I will want you to secure and bestow to
charity organizations. 

Please endaevour to reply me on my confidential email address of  for intimacy to this effect. For your time and
devotion, I have set aside a tenth of this for you. 

Best regards, 
David Weir.
