Assalamu'alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,
Alhamdulillah As you read this mail, you will understand the reason I choose to
contact you through this medium. My name is Dr. Sheikh Amin Al-obeid, (69yrs) a
former member of Lebanese parliament and one time deputy to the ambassador of
Lebanon in Bangkok, Thailand, in 1987. Now i live in London and co-founder of
islamic aid charity organisation.
I have been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer (cancer of the throat) for 5yrs
now. I have come to the reality of this world, because it is the destiny of
everyman to die someday. The cancer has defiled all forms of medical treatment,
I have only few months to live according to my medical experts. My only regret
now is my inability to donate charity and humanitarian project to less
privileged, poor and disables in the society. Though I am very well to do, i
was never open handed; I was always hostile to people and regarded them like
they never had hopes of becoming as successful as myself. Now I know that there
is a lot more to life than just prosperity.
Now that death is eminent, I have willed and given most of my belonging to
immediate and extended family members, as well as a few close friends. I want
God to be merciful to me and accept my soul. Hence I have decided to support
charity/humanitarian work; this is what i want to be remembered for. So far, I
have been able to reach out to a few charity organizations in Africa. Now that
my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to aid me in giving of help/alms to those
organizations taking care for the less Privileged in Asia, middle east. They
sometimes shortchanged the amount or kept the resources to themselves. Hence, I
do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contempt with what I have
left for them.
The last of my deposit now is an equivalent of (US$3,130,000.00) which no one
knows about, is the deposit of Three Million, One Hundred & Thirty Thousand US
dollars that I have in a bank (UNITED OVERSEAS BANK (UOB) THAI PCL) in Bangkok,
Thailand while I was assistant to the then ambassador of Lebanon to Thailand. I
have advised the bank manager and the director of International remittance
dept. of the bank that the balance and it's accrued interests should be
transferred to four individuals I shall direct to them from Asia, middle east,
Africa and Europe. I would want you to contact the remittance director to
transfer to you 25% of the US$3,130,000.00 and it's accrued interests.
Please Dear Brother, understand that this is for charity and humanitarian
projects only. Endeavour to use it judiciously especially for donation to world
disasters like earthquake, cyclones, floods and storms and for the less
privileged, disables and religious schools.
