    I greet you in the Name that is above all names,As you read this, I
    don't want you to feel sorry for me, because,I believe everyone will die
    someday.My name is Mr Ibrahim Alawi, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been
    diagnosed with lung cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical
    treatment, and right now I have only few months to live, according to medical

    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 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 God gives me a second chance to come to this world I
    will live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God
    has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to
    my immediate and extended family members as well as few close friends
    of mine. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul, I have
    decided to give arlms 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, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that
    my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I
    once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and
    distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria
    and Pakistan, 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 no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of
    Nineteen Million Five Hundred US dollars (US$19,500,000.00), that I
    deposited with a company abroad. Acknowledge this message so that I can
    introduce you to my lawyer who will handle the transfer of receivership
    by you of the said funds. I will want you to help me collect this
    deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. My lawyer shall put you
    in the picture of the funds, tell you where the funds are currently
    being maintained and also discuss modalities including remuneration for
    your services. For this reason kindly furnish your contact information,
    that is your address, personal telephone and fax number for confidential

    God be with you,
    Mr Ibrahim Alawi "
    No good deed goes unpunished.

    you would think they would try to come up with a more beliveable story.
    I know your type, you think "I'll just get me a costume, rip off the neighborhood kids". Next thing you know, you've got a jet shaped like a skull with lasers on the front!
