Dear friend,
greetings to you in the name of our heavenly God.
This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as
unserious could come into your mind; but please, consider it a divine wish
and accept it with a deep sense of humility. My name is Daniel Lee
I,m a 59 years old man. I am British
living in Dubai (United Arab Emirate). I was a merchant and owned two
businesses in Dubai. I was also married with two children. My wife and two
children died in a car accident six years ago.
Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I
lived for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the
loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I
have been helping orphans in orphanage/ motherless homes. I have donated
some money to orphans in Sudan, South Africa, Cameroon, Brazil, Spain,
Austria, Germany and some Asian countries. Before I became ill, I kept $4.5
Million in a long-term deposit account in a finance/security company .
Presently, I,m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for
oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have
told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see
this money distributed to charity organizations. Because relatives and
friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live
with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.
Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and the
interest accrued from the company and distributes it amongst charity
organizations. Use your judgement to distribute the money and your share
will be 30% of the total amount  for any cost you incur during the
process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations. .
That will be your  reward If you are willing to help; please reply
as soon as you can. May the good Lord bless you and your family.
Daniel Lee
