Dear Friend,
As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I
believe everyone will die someday. My name is Alhaji Tanko 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 articularly 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 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 thisworld 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 propertyand assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a fewclose friends. 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 the last good deeds I have done on earth. So far, I havedistributed 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 charityorganization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, but 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 ofTwenty One million dollars $21,000,000,00 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. I have set aside 25% for you and for your time.
Yours Sincerely
Mr Alhaji Tanko
