Dear friend, As you read this, I do not want you to feel sorry for me, because I believe everyone will die someday. Mr. Xian Young, a merchant in London, United Kingdom. I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer and have been in the hospital for a very long time. It has defied all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have about few months to live, according to the medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business and wealth. 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 till date. Now that God is calling me, I have willed and shared most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members,including 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 last good deeds I do on earth before Gods call. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.K, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has been 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 for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of 1 Million dollars united states dollars ($1.000.000) that I have with a finance and trust Company in Canada. I would want you to help me to collect this deposit on my behalf and distribute it to charity organizations in your country. I would want you to keep 25% of the funds to yourself and share the rest to charity organizations in your country. Reply this email as soon as possible even if you are not capable to handle this transaction on my behalf. My regards and Love to you and your family members. God be with you, Mr. Xian Young
