My Name is Mr. Abdul Raham,i am 55years old. Am a citizen of Saudi Arabia, but i am resident in Cayman island. I was born an orphan in 1952. I have no father or mother, and i have no relatives.I struggled and Worked Hard and Almighty blessed me abundantly with riches. I used to be a dealer in gold, diamonds and tantalite. I have no wife but i happend to have a child of 5Yrs from my late wife who happens to die of Cancer of the Breast. For 2 years now i am seriously sick. 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 year to live, according to my Medical Doctor. I have not particularly lived my life so well since after the death of my wife four years ago, as I never really cared for myself but the 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 God gives me a second chance and heal me I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.
Please i have sowed a seed for my healing; I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate orphans childrens and as well as a few close friends.I want God 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 Victims, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have donated money to Some charity organizations. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I Cannot do this my self anymore. I once asked a close friend of mine to close one of my accounts in Saudi Bank and donate the money which I have there to charity organization and to the less Privileged in Bulgaria and Sudan-Africa he cashed the money but kept it only to himselves.
Hence, I do not trust him anymore, as he seem not to be contended with what I have left for him already. The last of my money, which no one knows of, is the huge cash of Twenty Two million(22 Million US DOLLARS) deposited in the Vault of a financial institution in Europe for Safekeeping. I want you to collect this deposit on my behalf and disburse thus 30percent of the total amount among the Mudslide Earthquake Victims in Asia, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita, Hurricane Wilma and for the less rivileged, 30percent for you for your time and efforts and 40% (percent) for my only child for his upbringing as you will be responsible for his education,health and other activities. So i need your urgent reply so that I will not have to go on sourcing for a credible person to handle this project, please if this is what you Know that you can handle kindly respond back to me with the information below.
