“Patrick Berger” claims to be a “native of Britain” sending me this email from “sickbed”. Odd then that he managed to send the email from South Dakota in the United States. But then he is odd – he’s not dying and he’s not rich – he’s a scammer. Ignore him, otherwise he will start asking you to send him your money.
My name is Mr Patrick Berger, a native of Britain , I have been diagnosed with 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.
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 Africa , 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 a financial institute abroad .I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I am writing this from my laptop computer in my sickbed where I wait for my time to come. I pray that God uses you to support me.
Looking forward to your hearing from you.
Mr Patrick Berger
