Dear friend,

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. My name
is Mr. Donald D Powell, a merchant in London, but taking treatment in Dubai,now
I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal cancer that was discovered
very late due to lack of 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. Recently, I use to say to my self that if God should give me a second chance I would have live it differently way from how I have lived. I was meditating on my hospital bed and something told me that God is giving me a second chance by keeping me alive though doctors said I won?t last long. I know my time is near, that?s why I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as some 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 earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, London and Ireland. And I have also met
two people on the net who have helped me distribute money to charity organizations in their country. Now my health is deteriorating so badly,I really need you to help me distribute the last of my fortune. You might be wondering why I did not ask my close relatives to pick over this task. But I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organizations in Bulgaria ; they closed the account but refused to donate the money to the organizations, some of them even fled away with some of the money while the rest shared the remaining among money among! themselves.From the way they are acting around me tells that they want me dead so that they can talk about inheritance.

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 which is a huge cash deposit that I have with a security firm abroad will be put in your care if only you will agree. I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and let them know that it is I Donald D Powell 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. I pray for you to support and assist me with a good heart.

But the choice is yours Please you can contact me through this email address

Be blessed my beloved,
Donald D Powell

Subject: Please help me.

Hello.

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 my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have
there to charity organization in Bulgaria, they refused and kept the money to
themselves. 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 is the
huge cash that I deposit in a bank in England Uk.

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
generous donation.

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.

If you can help respond back to me on my private email:

Khalid Yussuf

Welcome to Scamwarners.
We don't support closing scammers' free email accounts. You've arranged for this one to appear on search engines, but he'll have to get a new one now which we won't know about.
Don't worry about it though, it's a natural reaction to receiving scam email, but an action that has little effect on scammers.
