Her om dagen fikk jeg et brev fra min gamle kompis Saeed Ahmed. Det står visst ikke så bra til med ham nå, han har visst pådratt seg kreft og skal snart dø. Han har levd et egoistisk liv, og kun tenkt på penger og seg selv. Nå har han imidlertid forandret seg, og skal gi bort det han eier og har til veldedige formål. Det synes jeg er lurt. Han vil dessuten ha bestevennen sin, som selvsagt er meg, til å hjelpe seg med å gi bort pengene, for han stoler ikke lenger på familien sin.

Han har 5 millioner dollar på en bortgjemt konto, og jeg skal få hele 30% av disse pengene som takk for hjelpen. Det synes jeg er en fin deal. Han er jo en kristen bror i nød, så dette er ikke noe å lure på. Og enhver person som vil gi meg 10 millioner kroner er en venn av meg. Jeg sendte selvsagt umiddelbart kontonummer, VISA-kortnummer og personnummer til kameraten min. Så nå er det bare å lene seg tilbake og vente på at pengene ruller inn.

Brevet fra ham og bildene han sendte med:

«Dear Friend,

Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and if it might offend you without your prior consent and writing through this channel.

As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Saeed Ahmed,I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.

It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, 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 focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.Butnow 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 would 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 a few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give also 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 five million dollars $5,000,000,00 that I have with a Security firm abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations.

I have set aside 30% for you and for your time.Please i want you to forward your full names and contacts address to me,so i can present it before my doctor to proceed further in this matter,i am with little strength please write back.

Here below is attached pictures of myself in the hospital bed.l am looking forward to read from you soonest,before i depart to meet the lord.Thanks and God bless you as you respond on time.

Saeed Ahmed.
