    An Email I Received

    This morning I checked my email, and I found this. Surprisingly, it was in my Spam folder.

    -----Inline Attachment Follows-----


    Dear friend,

    This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet
    met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains. My name

    is Mr. Stanley Alan John, a merchant in London, but taking treatment in
    Amsterdam, now I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal cancer that
    was

    discovered very late due to lack of caring for my health. It has defiled all
    form of medicine 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 focus 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. Recently, I use to say to my self that

    if God should give me a second chance I would have live it differently way from
    how I have lived. I was meditating on my hospital bed and something told me

    that God is giving me a second chance by keeping me alive though doctors said I
    won?t last long. I know my time is near, that?s why I have willed and given

    most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members
    and as well as some few close friends.

    I have decided to give alms 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, London and Ireland. And I have also met two
    people on the net who have helped me distribute money to charity

    organizations in their country. Now my health is deteriorating so badly, I
    really need you to help me distribute the last of my fortune. You might be

    wondering why I did not ask my close relatives to pick over this task. But I
    once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the

    money, which I have there to charity organizations in Bulgaria; they closed the
    account but refused to donate the money to the organizations, some of them

    even fled away with some of the money while the rest shared the remaining among
    money among themselves. From the way they are acting around me tells that

    they want me dead so that they can talk about inheritance.

    Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be content with what I
    have left for them. The last of my money which is a huge cash deposit that I

    have with a bank abroad will be put in your care if only you will agree. I want
    you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity

    organizations and let them know that it is I Mr. Stanley Alan John that is
    making this generous donation. I am writing this from my laptop computer in my

    hospital bed where I wait for my time to come. I pray for you to support and
    assist me with a good heart.

    But the choice is yours Please you can contact me through this email address:
    stanleyalanjohn[at]8u8.hk

    Be blessed my beloved,
    Mr. Stanley Alan John
    What should I do?

    Here you go with another big money collector, this morning too

    Dear beloved one,

    I am Paul Acarapi, a Bolivian national. 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 hence I want to change my life and pray that God accepts my soul when I finally pass on to the great beyond. I must confess that I am rich, but I was never generous. I have given most of my assets to my immediate family members.

    I have decided to give all my wealth to charity organizations. I cannot do this myself anymore because of my health. I once asked members of my family to give some money to charity organizations, but they refused to carry out my wish and kept the money to themselves. I need a God-fearing and honest person who can help me to distribute some funds to charity organizations. I have a huge cash deposit of Fifteen Million dollars with a finance House abroad. If you could be trusted, I will want you to help me collect this deposit and distribute it to charity organizations that you know. You will take out 25% of the funds for your assistance.

    Please let me know if you are interested in answering this call to work for God in touching lives of the less privileged and the needy.

    Regards,
    Paul Acarapi

    This man is not asking for money. He just wants to give it to me. Then I can donate it.

    If you want to be cynical, be cynical.


    Damn.

    You should send him all the information he needs so he can transfer these great sums to your account. Be sure to take enough out of the account for a good long drunk before you do. Just in case, like.

    Ever heard of bad Karma?


    I hope you all never end up in this situation.

    There are a lot of mean spirited people here!
    Give him your bank details and see what happens.
    And if, by chance, the local nick burst through your door yelling grab ur arse.....don't think, just do.

    He's obviously not a complete stranger... someone out of the past?
    Why else would he call Milkman his beloved?
