Thanks for your willingness to assist me in distributing the money, I am sending to you copies of my pictures to you to justify my reason for contacting you. I have been greatly disappointed by my family members they have failed to carry out all the instructions I gave to them when I shared all my assets to them.
As I write you this mail everybody has abandoned me in the hospital. The most painful aspect is my wife, I hear that she is now having an affair with another man, she could not even wait for me to die. I am happy that my wish is about to be carried out, since my immediate family has decided to act wickedly, I have sworn that they shall not know about this money. It must go to charity so that I can make peace with my soul.
I strongly believe that life on the Earth is temporary, but our Soul is eternal and further
existence is defined by God and depends on how and what the man lived for. My disease is not a
punishment, but God's favour to me ,because I have clean my soul by it. Suffering always cleans. Also good deeds clean our soul. I deposited the money in an Asset Management company in Europe.
Note that you do not need to travel to the Country in other to take control of the consignment (money). The Asset Management company will deliver the consignment (Money ) to you in your house in your country.
You need to reassure me that you can handle this transaction and that you promise to
distribute the money to charity organizations especially those in need. I have been very rude to people all my life, that is the reason why I want to do a little good so that I can have peace in my soul and also when I die at least it will be on record that I helped changed somebody's life for good. I have completely realized that one can be happy only if he takes care of other people,
That is when one thinks of other's happiness
and what is to be helpful for others. I strongly believe that life on Earth is temporary, but our Soul is eternal and further existence is defined by God and depends on how and what the man lived for.
My trust and my wishes are sacred for you and I want you to be responsible not before me, but before God. I would have loved to speak with you, but unfortunately this cancer has made it almost impossible for me to speak. I feel serious pain each time I want to speak. We can always communicate through the e-mail. Please answer these questions
(1) You’re Full Names.
(2)How old are you?
(3)Are you married or not, if yes how many children?
(4)What do you do for a living?
(5) Private telephone number?
Please note that I do not intend to cause you any problems, this money belongs to me, all you need to do is to help me distribute it as I have instructed. The doctors informed me that I have about Eight weeks to live, so you can see why I am desperate to conclude this project before I pass away. I thank God that He sent me my teacher (Jesus Christ) who gave me the most important and useful knowledge about soul. Now my soul is preparing for the most important thing to face God.
As soon as I hear from you, I will notify the fiduciary company that I have nominated you to collect the consignments on my behalf. Note that this must be kept Confidential between me and you until the consignment (money ) gets to your possessions.
I hope to hear from you soon.
May God bless you and your family,
