For Your Attention Please!
Happiness keeps you sweet, trials keeps you strong, sorrows keeps you
human, failures keeps you humble, success keeps you glooming, and but
only God keeps you going! You are so special!
My name is Mrs.Angelina Gibson a British Merchant in Caribbean Island. I
have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer, which wasdiscovered very
late, due to my laxity in caring for my health. This sickness has defiled
all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to
live, according to medical experts. I have since lost my power of speech
and can only manage to write now; as that has been the only way I am
able to communicate.
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 is the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all,
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 the Almighty gives me 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. I want nature and the Almighty God in Heaven
to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided to give
the remains of my wealth to charity organizations, as I want this to be
one of the last good deeds I did on earth.
So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the
Caribbean Island, London and Ireland. Now that my health has
deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself any more. I once asked
members of my family to close one of my accounts in Switzerland and
donate the money in the account to the motherless/charity homes across
Africa, Europe and America organizations, they refused and kept the money
to themselves. 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 only few of them know of is the (US$19M) cash
deposit that I have with a financial firm. I will want you to help me
collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and please
earn only 20% of the money as your fee for the distribution. Please let
me know if you are interested in helping me out.
May the Almighty God remain with you as you help.
