As-salam 'alaykum,
  I am HASSAN IBRAHIM a merchant in DUBAI,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 
I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared 
for anyone (not even myself) but my business.  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  all the money in 
the world.
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.I want God to be merciful to me and accept my souL.,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, and India. 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.
If you are interested, please send your prompt reply  if you will be 
kind enough to assist, as i we want you to help collect my last deposit 
and dispatched to charity organization.
 May the almighty Allah bless you
