New Email Hoax
Dec 03, 2004
We have all seen the Ethiopian Businessman Hoax, where one is emailed and asked to set up an account so that this businessman can transfer millions to America, all you have to do is provide the account information, and you will receive hundreds of thousands for the effort. I am an IT guy, and one of the users this morning brought the following to my attention. Always nice to see the old chestnuts resurface with new life, enjoy.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for
me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My
name is Abdul-Razaaq Abdullah, a merchant in Dubai,
in the U.A.E.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.
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 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
close one of my accounts and distribute the money
which I have there to charity organizations 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 ten million dollars
$10,000,000.00 that I have with a finance institution
in Europe(Spain-"Lacaixa"). I will want you to help me
collect this deposit and dispatche it to charity
I have set aside 20% for you and some expences that
may incure during the proccess of these transaction.
God be with you. Also remember
to please keep this known to yourself alone and I at
least for now,as I am doing this as a contribution to
life on earth.I will also appreciate if you provide
me with your contact mobile/tel numbers,so
that i can forward them to my lawyer in London who
would contact you and guide you through the whole process.
I await your urgent response.

If he has a lawyer in London, why can't he do it?
