    Dear friend,

    Greetings to you in the name of our heavenly God. Thismail might come
    to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it asunserious could
    come into your mind; but please, consider it adivine wishand ccept it
    with a deep sense of humility.

    My name is Cliff Richards . I'm a 65 years old man. I amBritish living
    in Dubai (UnitedArab Emirate). I was a merchant and ownedtwo 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 makingmoney was all I lived for.

    I never really cared about other values inlife. But since the loss of
    my family, I have found a new desire to assist helplessfamilies.

    I have been helping orphans in orphanage/ motherless homes. Ihave
    donated some money to orphans inSudan,SouthAfrica,Cameroon, Brazil,Spain,
    Austria,Germany and some Asian countries.

    Before I became ill, I kept $15 Million in along-termdeposit account in
    a finance company . Presently, I'm in a hospital whereI have been
    undergoing treatment for oesophageal cancer.

    I have sincelost my ability to talk and my Doctors have told me that I
    have only a few monthsto live. It is my last wish to see this money
    distributed to charity organizations.Because relatives and friends have
    plunderedso much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the
    agony of entrustingthis huge responsibility to any of them.

    Please, I beg you in thename of God to help me collect the deposit and
    the interest accrued from the company anddistributes it amongst charity

    Use your judgement to distribute the money and feel freeto reimburse
    yourself when you have the money for any cost you incureduring the
    process of collecting and distributing the money to charityorganizations.

    I'm willing to offer you a reward If you are willing to help;
    please reply as soon as you can. May the good Lord bless you and your family.

    Pls contact me with this Email : [email protected]

    Cliff Richards.
