Dear Beloved My name is william simon I am a Oil merchant of Oman nationality but presently residing in london.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .It has defied all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well according to God's will Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and my business 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. 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 have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. 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. I want you to help me claim a huge cash deposit of eighteen million dollars 58,000,000 deposited in a Finance Company before my illness and dispatche it to charity organizations. Get back to me through my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org I have set aside 20% for you and for your time. God be with you. william simon NB : Call me on my number +44 7031904374 london,uk
