Dear Friend

This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it
as unserious could come into your mind; but please consider
it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility. My name is
Jose A.
Martinez. I am a 54 years old man, I am Cuban currently residing in Dubai
(United Arab Emirate).

I was formerly living in Cuba and served under Castro`s government but had
to run into
self exile after the ruling Government of Fidel Castro closed in on my
family on accusations of anti-government greetings to you and your
lovely statements, I was once married with two children but my family
also my wife and children escpe to america before they where one of those
vitim in world trade centre.
l did made a lot of money serving Castro and on
getting to UAE, I have been a merchant here in Dubai dealing in
Ornamentals, Oriental Carpets and Artifacts and life was very smooth
for me until about three(3) years ago when I was first diagnosed of Cancer
of the Larynx.Before this happened my business and concern for making
money was all I lived for, I never really cared
about other values in life. But since the loss of my family and hometown,
I have
found a new desire to assist helpless families.
I have been helping orphans orphanage/motherless homes. I have once
donated some money to orphans in war ravaged Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan and
some East European Countries.
Before I became ill, I kept $ 4.5 Million in a long-term deposit vault of
a security/finance company and I didn`tstate any next of kin when the
money was deposited and if I died without stating any the money will
go into the coffers of the security company and I don`t want this to
happen. I have left the hospital and presently receiving treatment in an
acupuncture clinic, I have been undergoing treatment for Oesophageal
Cancer at the hospital.

I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I
have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see
this money distributed to charity rganizations.Because relatives and
friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot
live with the
agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg
you in the
name of God to help me collect the deposit and distribute it amongst
charity organizations. Use your judgement to distribute the money and feel
free to reimburse yourself when you have the money for any cost you incur
during the process of collecting and distributing the money to charity
organizations. I am willing to offer you a reward If you are willing to
help, please reply as soon as you can
Looking forward to hearing from you soonest.

Best wishes,

J. A Martinez
