Mr Johnson is dying. His illness has “defiled” all kinds of treatment. He tells me he’s rich and wants me to help give his money to charity. Do I believe him? You bet I don’t. Nor should you. He’s just a scammer. Delete his email and don’t reply.

Dear friend,

This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have
not yet met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you
any pains. My name is Mr. Johnson Sampson, a merchant in London, but
taking treatment in Holland, now I have been diagnosed with
prostate and esophageal cancer that was discovered very late due to
lack of 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 know my time is near, that’s why I have willed and given most of my
properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as some 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 the U.A.E, London and Ireland. And I
have also met two people on the net who have helped me distribute
money to charity organizations in their country. Now my health is
deteriorating so badly,

I really need you to help me distribute the last of my fortune. You
might be wondering why I did not ask my close relatives to pick over
this task. But I once asked members of my family to close one of my
accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity
organizations in Bulgaria ; they closed the account but refused to
donate the money to the organizations, some of them even fled away with
some of the money while the rest shared the remaining among money
among themselves.

From the way they are acting around me tells that
they want me dead so that they can talk about inheritance. Hence, I do
not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be content with what I have
left for them. The last of my money which is a huge cash deposit that
I have with a security firm abroad will be put in your care if only
you will agree.

I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity
organizations and let them know that it is I Mr Johnson Sampson 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 for you to support and assist me with a good heart. But the
choice is yours

Be blessed my beloved,
Johnson Sampson
