Dear beloved,
i was trying to look for a good and honest person so i believe this may
reach you well,i desire in going into a business relationship with you as
in you working with you to achieve my aims and plan.My Testimonies may
come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. I have
to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i decided to
contact you through this medium . As you read this, I don't want you to
feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.My name is
IYESSA ISMAINA a merchant in England, 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 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 in 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,and Schools in the UAE. I want God to be merciful to
me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give also 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, 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 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 Ten million, seven hundred
thousand pounds(10,700,­000,000.00 pounds) that I have with a Financial
Firm Abroad.I will want you to help me collect this deposit gradually and
dispatch it to charity organizations and needies locally .I have set aside
10% of the total funds,for you and for your time.I will want you to help
me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations any
where in the world and let them know that it is I Iyessa Ismaina that is
making this generous donation. I will appreciate your utmost
confidentialit­y in this matter until the task is accomplished as I dont
want anything that will Jeopadize my last wish. I am writing this from my
Notebook computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time to come.You
can get back to me with my personal email I pray that God uses you to
support and assist me with good heart. God be with you. U can mail me here
on (
look forward hearing from you soon.
