Dear Friend. Before I will introduce myself, I would like to assure you that this is Not a junk mail. I hope and pray to GOD that I have the right person.As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, Ibelieve everyone will die someday. My name is Mr faroog yousuf, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. 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 onmy 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 a different way from how I have lived it. Now that Godhas called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assetsto my immediate and extended family members as well as a few closefriends. 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 thelast 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 nottrust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I haveleft for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of twenty seven million dollars $27,000,000,that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. i will reward you for your time and patience. reply me with your full contact information for more private and confidential communication. God be with you. Mr,faroog yousuf
