Obviously this person is mentally damaged, if he was such an obnoxious prick all his life finding out he's dying of cancer wouldn't change him, he would spend all his money as fast as possible to stop his family from getting it.
if he wants to give it to charity, a WILL would do it for him.

DEAR FRIEND,

MY NAME IS JOSEPH BROWN,A MERCHANT IN DUBAI,IN THE U.A.E.
I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH ESOPHAGEAL CANCER WHICH WAS DISCOVERED VERY
LATE,DUE TO MY LAXITY INCARING FOR MY HEALTH.IT HAS DEFILED ALL FORMS
OF MEDICINE,AND RIGHT NOW I HAVE ONLY ABOUT A FEW MONTHS TO
LIVE,ACCORDING TO MEDICAL EXPERTS.

I HAVE NEVER PARTICULARLY LIVE MY LIFE SO WELL,AS I NEVER REALLY CARED
FOR ANYONE NOT EVEN MYSELF BUT MY BUSINESS.

THOUGH I AM VERY RICH,BUT WAS NEVER GENEROUS,I WAS ALWAYS HOSTILE TO
PEOPLE AND I 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.

I BELIEVE WHEN GOD GIVES ME A SECOND CHANCE TO COME TO THIS WORLD I
WOULD LIVE MY LIFE IN A DIFFRENT WAY FROM HOW I HAVE LIVED BEFORE.

NOW THAT GOD HAS CALLED ME THROUGH THIS WAY I HAVE WILLED AND GIVEN
MOST OF MY PROPERTIES AND ASSETS TO MY IMMEDIATE AND EXTENDED FAMILY AND
AS WELL AS FEW CLOSE FRIENDS.

I WANT GOD TO BE MERCIFUL TO ME AND ACCEPT MY SOUL AND SO,I HAVE
DECIDED TO GIVE ALMS TO CHARITY ORGANISATIONS,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 ORGANISATIONS IN THE U.A.E ALGERIAAND
MALAYSIA.NOW THAT MY HEALTH HAS DETERIORATED SO BADLY,I CANNOT DO THIS MYSELF
ANYMORE.

I ONCED ASKED MY FAMILY MEMBERS TO CLOSE ONE OF MY ACCOUNTS AND
DISTRIBUTE THE FUNDS WHICH I HAVE THERE TO CHARITY ORGANISATION IN BULGARIA
AND PAKISTAN,THEY REFUSED AND KEPT THE MONEY TOTHEMSELVES.

HENCE,I DO NOT TRUST THEM ANYMORE,AS THEY SEEM NOT TO BE CONTENDED WITH
WHAT I HAVE LEFT FOR THEM THE LAST OF THE FUNDS WHICH NO ONE KNOWS OF
IS THE HUGE CASH DEPOSIT OF THIRTY FIVE MILLION DOLLERS($35,000,000,00)
IN EUROPE WITH A CARGO SHIPPING/SECURITY FIRM.

I WANT TO KNOW IF YOU CAN BE OF GOOD HELP TO DISPATCH THIS FUNDS TO
CHARITY ORGANISATIONS.

I HAVE SET ASIDE 10%FOR YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND PATIENCE.

MAY GOD BE WITH YOU AS YOU HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE A BOLD STEP TO HEAL THE
WORLD WITH ME OR EVEN IN MY DEMISE...

PLEASE REPLY TO MY PRIVATE MAIL BOX ,AS I WILL ONLY BE BUSY
ACCESSING MY PRIVATE BOX browny3k@netscape.net, WAITIMNG FOR YOUR
REPLY.

BEST REGARDS,

JOSEPH.

all-caps

by apotheon In reply to Latest email scam

Barring some kind of sick joke from a friend, any email that's all in caps just gets deleted (or occasionally ridiculed, if on a mailing list) by me anyway.

being a scam

by jdclyde In reply to Latest email scam

this person deserves to really get cancer and die. Preferably after many painful months, and after a week of being so sedated that he can't even recognise his family, this piece of sheet will leave the world a better place by not being part of it.

You must be one of the chosen ones!

by oneamazingwriter In reply to Latest email scam

I just read an article today that said the "victims" were just as guilty as the perpetrator because they were seeking to get money illegally from bank transfers. Some minister got stiffed out of $20,000.

I just don't trust anyone that appears out of nowhere saying they want to give me money, even in person I'll look at the fine print before accepting.

equal responsibility?

by frostbite In reply to naww

I don't fully agree with the victim and perpetrator sharing equal responsibility for this scam.

partial perhaps, anyway they already paid for it.

In any case it's a good, expensive lesson for being both greedy and stupid. Not a good combination.

I've been chosen , too.

by oneamazingwriter In reply to Latest email scam

I got a similar, not identical letter, yesterday. It arrived in my inbox and didn't go to Bulk mail. That surprised me to begin with. I rarely get anything in bulk mail at the address I used to join here, for I have only used it for here.
'Makes me wonder where the dude got his mailing list from.
