Poor Mr. Shehu Abdul is dying. :sniff:

Although I know him not, Mr. Abdul is such a generous man now that he’s dying. Perhaps I should send him flowers as thanks for offering me a hunk of his enormous wealth? And his greedy family is just horrible, taking advantage of a sick and dying man. I only wish I knew how much of his wealth I will be getting.

Dear Friend,
This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. I humbly crave your indulgence in sending you this mail. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i decided to contact you through this medium .As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.
My name is Shehu Abdul, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal Cancer that was discovered very late due to my laxity in 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. 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 I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends and Schools in the UAE. 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. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria; 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 is the huge cash deposit that I have with Financial Firm Abroad .I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and let them know that it is I Shehu Abdul 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 that God uses you to support and assist me with good heart

God be with you(Masallam).
Shehu Abdul

NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I don’t want anything that will jeopardize my last wish. and Also I will be contacting with you by email as I don’t want anybody to know because they are always around me.

It’s a scam. The FBI is very interested in these things. Drop them a line.

My god, the man is dying! Have you no compassion?

My favorite variation of these was a Nigerian guy trapped in the International Space Station because of the cancelled US space shuttle flights after the Columbia disaster.

Well if that doesn’t tickle your sucker bone I don’t know what will.

Esophogal & Prostate cancer. Just how big were those cigerettes he was smokin?

I think the problem was that he was blowing it out his ass.

Wait a minnit! That one was for real. Right? What?
Dang! And I was gonna use that 10 mil to retire on

Duck! We have incoming! :wink:

I would’ve come back to this thread, but I was out finding just the right bouquet of flowers for Mr. Abdul and picking out a new car. I figure Mr. Abdul is good for at least a million smackaroos, so I was trying to decide between a Ferrari and a Hummer.

He told me he was good for at least 5 - I’ve put the payment down on the Hummer and the Ferrari. All I have to do now is hotmail him my bank details, my SS and a copy of my driver’s licence and wait for the $ to roll in. Should I send the advance fee of $10,000 in cash??

Well, you wouldn’t want to be left out, since it’s apparent that he’s being very generous to several of us. And since it’s apparent he has little time left, we’d better get those deposits to him immediately.

P.S. astro’s and Shirley’s comments made me snort.
