Dearest friend,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I
believe everyone will die someday. My name is Steve Douglas,I am a
merchant of Omani nationality but presently residing in London. I have
been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.It has defiled all forms of
treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according
to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared
anyone(not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my
as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I
know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all
money in the world.

I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I
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 alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the
good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some
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
which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan,
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 for
The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of
eighteen million dollars 18,000,000 that I have with a Security Company
Europe. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatche
to charity organizations. I have set aside 20% for you and for your

God be with you.

Steve Douglas
