As you read this, don't feel sorry for me, because it is the destiny of
everyman to die someday. I am William Jones a naturalised Briton by birth and a
business merchant based in the United Kingdom. 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 regret that I have not
particularly lived my life so well, as
I never really cared for anyone (not even myself), but my trade. Though I am
very well to do, I was never open handed; I was always hostile to people and
regarded them like they never had hopes of becoming as successful as myself.
Now I know that there is a lot more to life than just prosperity.

I believe that when I am given a second chance to come to this world, I would
live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that death is
eminent, I have willed and given most of my belonging to immediate and extended
family members, as well as a few close friends. I want Allah to be merciful to
me and accept my soul. Hence I have decided to support charity work; this is
what i want to be remembered for. So far, I have been able to reach out to a
few charity organizations in the Singapore, 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 aid me in giving of alms to those
organizations catering for the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan; they
refused and kept the resources to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them
anymore, as they seem not to be contempt with what I have left for them.

The last of my belonging which no one knows of, is the huge deposit of Eighteen
million US dollars that I have in a safe keeping company abroad, which I will
want you to secure and bestow to charity organizations.

Please endaevour to reply me via email: . For your
time and devotion, I have set aside a tenth of this for you.

God be with you.

William Jones
