As you read this, don't feel sorry for me, because it is the destiny of everyman to die someday.I am Salem Khalid a naturalised briton by birth and a business merchant based in the United Kingdom.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.
It has defiled all forms of medical treatment,and right now I have only about a few months to live,according to medical experts.I regret that I have not particularly lived my life so well,as I never really cared for anyone(not even myself),but my trade.Though I am very well to do,I was never open handed;I was always hostile to people and regarded them like they never had hopes of becoming as successful as myself.
Now I know that there is a lot more to life than just prosperity.I believe that when I am given a second chance to come to this world,I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.Now that death is eminent,I have willed and given most of my belonging to immediate and extended family members,as well as a few close friends.I want Allah to be merciful to me and accept my soul. Hence I have decided to support charity work;this is what i want to be remembered for.So far,I have been able to reach out
to a few charity organizations in the Singapore,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 aid me in giving of alms to those organizations catering for the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan;they refused and kept the resources to themselves.Hence,I do not trust them anymore,as they seem not to be contempt with what I have left for them.
The last of my belonging which no one knows of,is the huge deposit of Four and half milion US dollars that I have in a safe keeping company abroad,which I will want you to secure and bestow to charity organizations.Please reply to my secured email address email@example.com
For your time and devotion,I have set aside a tenth of this for you.
Allah be with you.
