Another Internet Scam: From Nelson Williams

Dear Beloved Friend,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Nelson Williams. merchant in United Kingdom, in the UK 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. 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 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, Malaysia and some countries in Africa. 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, 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. I have to seek for ur email from the chamber of commerce in your embassy just to avoid those internet scammers because people can not differentiate who is real or not. I am currently in one of the hospital undergoing treatments.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Three million dollars $3,000,000,00 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations in your country. I have set aside 30% for your time and for your expenses.
God be with you.

Yours Faithfully,
MR, NELSON WILLIAMS.
