subject: FROM ROLAND GOAM
My name is Roland Goam I am from Greece Please take this serious, I am taking this liberty anchored on strong desire to ask for your assistance for help. Your consent and urgent attention will greatly be needed, devoid of apprehensions. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. It has defied 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. Now that i have been diagnosed with this deadly disease I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as few close friends, i lost my wife and son in a fatal accident a few years ago 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, Somalia and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I can not 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 in Bulgeria and Haiti, 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 United States Dollars($10,000,000) that I have with a Finance Vaulting Unit in Europe.I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations.I,am willing to offer you a reward If you are willing to help.
please when replying indicate Your full name email, cell phone number so that My personal confidant will call you and give you details on how the funds will be transfered to you.
