Subject: Dear Friend.
I am, Omar Jassim A merchant in Dubai, United Arab Emirate (UAE). I
Have been diagnosed with Cancer, which was discovered very late, due
To my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of
Medicine; Rightnow I have only about a few months to live, according
to My Medical Doctor. I have not particulalylived my life so well, as I
Never really cared for myself but the Oil business. Though I am very
Rich, I was Never generous, I only focused 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 Allah gives me a second chance and heal me I
would live My life a different way from how I have lived it. I have
sowed a seed For my healing 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 want Allah to be merciful to me and
accept my soul and so, I Have decided to give arms to charity
organizations and give succor and Comfort to the less privileged of the
Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina Victims,
As I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth so far,
By Distributed some of this money to some charity organizations in
India. Now that my Health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this
my self anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my
accounts in SaudiBank and distribute the money, which I have there to
charity organization And to the less privileged in Bulgaria and Sudan.
They cashed the money But kept it only to themselves. Hence I do not
trust them anymore,as They Seem not to be contended with what I have
left for them already. The Last of my money, which no one knows of, is
the huge cash deposit of Twenty-Two Million United States Dollars (US$ 22
Million) that I have in the Vault of The Finance Company in Europe as
valuable since the year 2003 for Safekeeping. I want you to collect
this deposit on my behalf and Disburse it To the Tsunami Earthquake
victims in Asia for the less privileged. Please send me a mail to indicate
your wiliness to assist in this Disbursement. I will set aside 10% for
you for your time and efforts.
feel free to send to me the following informations:
Your Full names:
Your Residential Address:
Your phone/Fax numbers:
to enable me to ,make an application to the security company to make
you the new beneficiary of my fund,I will also plead to you to always
pray for me because only Allah Heals.
