Dear beloved one, As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.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 have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself)but my business. Though I was very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people andonly 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 that if given a second chance to come to this world,I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Due to my deteriorating health, 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. In order to receive mercy and my soul accepted, I have decided to give also to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, 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 money which I have there to charity organizations in Asia and U.K, they refused and kept the money to them selves. 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 thirteen million dollars that I have with a finance institution in Europe. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. I have set aside 10% for you after you complete this mission.Please reach me through this email address with your response. Also remember to keep this known to yourself and I alone for now,as I am doing this as a contribution to life on earth.I will also appreciate if you provide me with your contact mobile and home phone numbers,so that i can make arrangements to call you and give you more information regarding this. I will really appreciate your quick response. Bless you, Donald Burlock
