 This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have
 not yet met. I am contacting you to assist me, I have to say that I
 have no intentions of causing you any pains as you read this. I don't want
 you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die
 someday. My name is Mrs. Maryam Forsythe, a merchantress here in London,
 presently taking medical treatment. now, I have been diagnosed with
 Endometrial cancer (Cancer of the Uterus) that was discovered very late due to
 my uncaring attitude for my health. It has defiled all form of medicine
 and right now, i have only about a few months to live according to
 medical experts. To be frank with you, I have not particularly lived my
 life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my
 business and money. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was
 always hostile to people and only focus 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. Now
 that I know my time is almost up, I have willed and given most of my
 properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as
 well as a few close friends. I have decided to give alms to charity
 organizations,as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on

 So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations here in
 UK,United Arab Emirates and Ireland. Now that my health has
 deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked members of
 my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money which I have
 there to some charity organizations in Bulgaria, they refused and kept
 the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they
 seem not to be content with what I have left for them.

 The last of my money is the huge cash deposit ($5.5 Million) that I
 have with a security firm abroad . I will want you to help me collect this
 deposit and dispatched  it to charity organizations and let them know
 that it is I, Maryam Forsythe that is making this generous donation. I
 am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait
 for my time to come.

 As soon as I received your sincere response, I will hence give you all
 the necessary details of how this can be done. I pray that you will
 support and assist me with good heart so that I can be able to achieve my
 goal. If you accept to help me do this, I promise you a reward of 40%
 of the ($5.5 Million).

 Thank you for understanding.


Maryam Forsythe
