Dear friend, 

Greetings to you in the name of our heavenly God. 

This mail might come to you as a surprise and the 

temptation to ignore it as unserious could come into 

your mind; but please, consider it a divine wish and 

accept it with a deep sense of humility. My name is 

simon taylor. 

I,m a 65 years old man. I am British 

living in Dubai (United Arab Emirate). I was a 

merchant and owned two businesses in Dubai. I was 

also married with two children. My wife and two 

children died in a car accident six years ago. 

Before this happened my business and concern for 

making money was all I lived for. I never really 

cared about other values in life. But since the loss 

of my family, I have found a new desire to assist 

helpless families. I have been helping orphans in 

orphanage/ motherless homes. I have donated some 

money to orphans in Sudan, South Africa, Cameroon, 

Brazil, Spain, Austria, Germany and some Asian 

countries. Before I became ill, I kept $5 Million 

in a long-term deposit account in a finance/security 

company . Presently, I,m in a 

hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for 

oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to 

talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a 

few months to live. It is my last wish to see this 

money distributed to charity organizations. Because 

relatives and friends have plundered so much of my 

wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the 

agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any 

of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to 

help me collect the deposit and the interest accrued 

from the company and distributes it 

amongst charity organizations. Use your judgement to 

distribute the money and feel free to reimburse yourself when you 

have 

the money for any cost you 

incur during the process of collecting and 

distributing the money to charity organizations. . 

I,m willing to offer you a reward If you are willing 

to help; please reply as soon as you can through my private email address

simontaylor73@googlemail.com. May the 

good Lord bless you and your family. 

Regards, 

simon taylor
