Unlike the usual 419 scam mails, “Jose Patrick” did not state the
amount of money that is involved in the scam though he claims that he
is “rich”. That is normally a “mistake” because people don’t like to read long junk mails unless they see some big numbers. But due to the widespread 419 scams, most experienced surfers will treat either mails as scams, with or without the amount of money stated.

He claims to be donating to charity and has recruited 2 other helpers from the internet. Now his family wants him dead, and he urgently needs someone to help him donate money to charity organisation?

Do you think a really rich man, needs a total stranger from the internet to help him distribute money to the charity? The hospital can surely use some of the money to give free treatment to the poor.

This is a scam. We certainly hope that the whole story is real, especially the part that he is dying. ūüėÄ

Dear friend,

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. Jose Patrick, a merchant in London, but taking
treatment in
Ireland. 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

Recently,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
and as well as some few close friends. I have decided   to give alms
charity organizations, as I want this to be one of   the last good deeds
 do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some
organizations in the  U.A.E,  London and Ireland. And I have also met
people on the net who   have  helped me distribute money to
organizations in their  country. Now my   health is deteriorating
badly,I really need you to  help me distribute  the last of my
You might be wondering why   I did not ask my close  relatives to
over this task. But I once  asked members of my family to close one of
accounts and donate the   money, which I have there to
organizations in Bulgaria ; they  closed the account but refused to
the money   to the organizations, some of them even fled away with
some of
the money  while the rest  shared the remaining among money
themselves.   From the way they are acting around me tells that they
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

I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to
organizations and let them know that it is I Jose Patrick that is
this generous donation. I am writing this from my   laptop computer in
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

blessed my beloved,
Jose Patrick
