Dear Sir/Madam, 

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe
everyone will die someday. 

My name is Dr Joseph Michael, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been
diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late, due to my
laxity in carrying for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, 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. Though I am very rich, I was never
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus 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 a different way from how I have lived it. 

Now that God ! has called me, I have willed and given most of my properties
and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few
close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I
have decided to give arms to charity organizations and give succour and
confort to the less priviledged in our societies, 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 healthhas deteriorated so badly, I
cannot do this my self 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 and to the less priviledged 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
fourteen million dollars($14m) that I have with a Security Company in Europe
for safe keeping. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
disburse it to some charity organizations and to the less priviledged. 

N/B:Kindly note that 40% of this funds must go to victims of Tsunami,
Hurricane Katrina , Hurricane Wilma and South Asia Earthquake ,50% to other
Charity Organizations around the World and 10% for your effort and time. 

I cannot talk with you on the phone due to my health situation, as I am
using my Lap Top Computer to communicate with you. You should respond to
this e-mail if you are interested in carrying out this assignment on my
Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this

I await to hear from you, may God be with you and your entire family. 

Remain blessed, 
Dr. Joseph Michael
