This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet
met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i
decided to contact you through this medium.
As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe
everyone will die someday. My name is Khalid Yussuf, a merchant in Dubai, in the
U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal Cancer that was
discovered very late due to my laxity in caring 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.
I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for
anyone not even myself but my business. 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 if i have 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 near,
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 and Schools in the
UAE. 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. So far, I have distributed money to
some charity organizations in the U.A.E, England and Ireland. Now that my health
has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self
any more. I once asked members of
I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity
organizations and let them know that it is I Khalid Yussuf that is making this
I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed in England where I
wait for my time to come. If you are interested to help me i will give you more
information about this like the amount that i deposited in the bank and Contact
of the bank so you can contact them. I will also send you pictures of my self
when in the hospital.
Note that you will take 20% out of the funds and give 80% to the charity
organizations. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me with good heart
God be with you.
