Dear Beloved, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Anthony.E.Adams, I am an oil merchant that is living presently in London.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment,and it has also affected my hearing,which has made me to be deaf and dumb and right now I have only about a few days to live, according to medical experts. 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 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 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 property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul, so I have decided to give most of my wealth to charity organizations, as I want it to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the Oman, 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 charity organization 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 behind for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of twenty five million United States dollars( $25,000,000USD)that I have with a financial security Company. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and assist me distribute it to charity organizations. Get back to me as soon as possible through this my secure private email address EMAIL:email@example.com I have set aside 20% for you and for your time.God be with you.
