Dear Friend,
I am Al-Yusuf,A merchant in Dubai, United Arab Emirate (UAE). I have been diagnosed with Cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine; Right now I have only about a few months to live, according to my Medical Doctor. I have not particularlylived my life so well, as I never really cared for myself but the Oil business.
Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I 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 Allah gives me a second chance and heal me I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.
I have sowed a seed for my healing 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 Allah to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have
decided to give arms to charity organizations and give succor and comfort to the less privileged of the Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina Victims, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth so far, by distributed some of this money to some charity organizations in India.
Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self
anymore.I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts in Saudi Bank and distribute the money which I have there to charity
organization and to the less privileged in Bulgaria and Sudan. They cashed the money but kept it only to themselves. Hence I do not trust them anymore,as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them already.
The last of my money, which no one knows of, is the huge cash deposit of Twenty Two Million United States Dollars ( US$ 22 Million) that I have in one of of the Security Finance Company in Europe since the year 2003 waiting for payment.
I want you to collect this deposit on my behalf and disburse it to the Tsunami Earthquake victims in Asia for the less privileged. Please send me a mail to indicate your wiliness to assist in this disbursement. I will set aside 10% for you for your time and efforts. I need your urgent reply with the below complete information.
