ASSIST ME URGENT REPLY Greetings in the name of the lord. I pray that this email reach you in good health and state of mind.The contents of this email might prove slightly unbelievable to you,but I ask that you peruse through the contents with uttermost attention and thorough concentration. I am Dish Khushab a Pakistani national who worked with the Zambian ministry of mines and industry for 35years. I was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer and the doctors have made it absolutely lucid that this disease is terminal. The doctors were not exact about how long I have to live but I am in the know that the disease has ravaged my body and left me at the mercy of endless cocktail of drugs been administered to me. The drugs have gone a long way in alleviating the pains, but I still feel my life gradually ebbing away. My only consolation is that I lived a life worthy of emulation and good heartedness; I have touched the lives of thousands of children and sick individuals across the world and I wish and hope that this illness will not impede the realization of my life time dream and ambition of expending my resources and time towards helping the less privileged and opportune world over. I acquired a considerable sum of money through my resourcefulness and effectiveness through the duration of my stay in zambian. These monies are currently lodged in a finance institution in Europe. I am desperately in need of your assistance and guidance in the dispatch of these monies for the sole purpose of ameliorating the suffering of thousands of sick, poor and down trodden individuals ecumenically. My desperation has been pushed to the limit particularly now that the financial institution has issued me an ultimatum to either procure these monies or have it confiscated or rendered unserviceable. This ultimatum was prompted by the fact that the time schedule upon which these monies were deposited with the finance institution in Europe will elapse in three weeks. I lost my wife and two kids in a plane crash two years ago. I do not have any existing family member to my knowledge to assist me in procuring these monies before the stipulated time. I established this contact with you solely out of need and desperation, communication with you was completely fortuitous and serendipitous. I will ask that you inform me of your decision to assist or decline,please ensure that you make your decision based on nobility and humanity. Your assistance will remain forever invaluable and beneficial to thousands of children across the world. Kindly send your reply enclosing your full Contact Address and Private email address to my private email address ( email@example.com ) for confidentiality. Remain blessed. Best Regards, Dish Khushab.
