Last week I received an email from Rina Patel (although her email address implies â€œDanielâ€ as first name), subject: â€œKindly Assistâ€. Rina is from Japan (although her/ Danielâ€™s email address is from Uruguay) and was married to an English man from the UK, called â€œLate Sir Patelâ€. Sir Patel â€œwas an oil explorerâ€ in Libya and Kuwait for twelve years. But in 2010 he died.
Rina is a lonely person â€“ not only because sheâ€™s a widow â€“ she â€œwas abandoned by relativesâ€, too. And now her doctor said that she only has a few days to live. But Rina is brave and made a plan for her last days on earth: She wants to spend them quietly. Rina is even fine with the hospital room: She was able to organize a laptop â€“ her connection to the world. Cause there are still â€œsome outstanding issuesâ€. Rina is going to donate an amount of money for a good cause. Two Million Pounds should be donated to cancer research institutes and other charity organizations â€“ but who could manage these transactions?
Rina thought that the internet could help and did an online research for â€œsome one remotely afar who can receive the funds from where it has been deposited and disburse the moneyâ€ to the deserving charity organizations. In Rinaâ€™s opinion I am the one. She will give me 25 % of the amount for my â€œtime taken from my busy scheduleâ€ to work with her â€œon this sole act of charityâ€. Half a Million Pounds for me? Not bad. But are these kinds of transactions safe?
Of course they are! Cause â€œthe Holy Spirit ledâ€ Rina do it this way. Her â€œdreams will rest squarelyâ€ on my shoulders until she receives my acceptance of this deal in her private email box (not Danielâ€™s email any longer) â€“ and her barrister will contact me as soon as he will be informedâ€¦
