Another do-gooder spam scam. This time allegedly from an aging Brittish citizen, hospitalized in Dubay.
It’s another one of those wellfare scams where a formerly greedy businessman wants our help to give away their life savings to good causes.
I think the idea is to wake the plan to grab the money for myself, and in the process loose a couple of thousand dollars in fees and bribes, necessary to lift the funds from the bank.
Go figure for yourself:

greetings to you in the name of our heavenly God.
This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come into your mind; but please, consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility. My name is Graham Lee I,m a 59 years old man. I am British living in Dubai (United Arab Emirate). I was a merchant and owned two businesses in Dubai. I was also married with two children. My wife and two children died in a car accident six years ago.
Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I lived for. I never really cared about other values in life. But since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families. I have been helping orphans in orphanage/ motherless homes. I have donated some money to orphans in Sudan, South Africa, Cameroon, Brazil, Spain, Austria, Germany and some Asian countries. Before I became ill, I kept $4.5 Million in a long-term deposit account in a finance/security company .
Presently, I,m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.
Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and the interest accrued from the company and distributes it amongst charity organizations. your share of will be 30% of the total money for your help and for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations. .
I,m willing to offer you a reward If you are willing to help; please reply as soon as you can. May the good Lord bless you and your family.
