Please post them here if you have them. IIRC, there was a website that collected them, too.
I apologize in advance for the weak search-foo, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I am having technical medical diffculties.
Thanks for your help!
Here is one I got the other day:
How are you and your family doing today? Hope all is well I got your contact address through email address directory.
As you read this, I don't want you to feel much sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.
My name is Mr. Sajid Omar Faruk; I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer, which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in carrying for my health condition which was discover after United State War Bombing in Afghanistan.
It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have since lost my power of speech and can only manage to write now; as that has been the only way I am able to communicate.
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 is 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 Brothers and as well as a few close friends.
I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I did on earth.
So far, I have distributed money to some charity Organizations in Afghanistan. Now that my health condition has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked brothers to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Pakistan; 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 only few of them know of is the huge cash Deposit that, I have with Security Company in abroad since this fund is out of my country that why i am seeking for your assistance.
I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations.
