Mr. Simon Robson

This is simply a copy of one email that has been going around the net for years. He's taken out the arabic name and then said he is from Portugal, not the UAE. Slightly unfotunate that he has chosen an English name and then pretended that he is from Portugal.

Of course, this is a fake, a scam. There is no pile of money. You will be asked to pay a series of fees in advance. For travel, for bribes, for legal fees and so on.

The criminal will simply keep any money you send him. Nothing will ever be sent to you.

Ignore it, it's fake.

Kindest Attention:

My name is Mr. Simon Robson. I am from Portugal. I have been diagnosed
with esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, 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
focused  on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I
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 God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property
and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as few
close friends .I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so,
Ihave decided to give alms to charity organizations and those in Need,
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 when I was well. Now
that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and
distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in United
States, Asia, Middle East & Europe, they refused and kept the money to

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 no one knows of is
the huge cash deposit of Twenty Million United States Dollars ($20,
000,000.00) that I have with an Asset Management / Vaulting Company
Abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to
charity organizations and use it to help those in Need.

N/B: Kindly note that 40% of this funds must go to victims of
Tsunami,Hurricane Katrina , Hurricane Wilma and South Asia Earthquake ,
55% to other Charity Organizations around the World and 5% for your effort
and time.

I cannot talk with you on the phone due to my health situation, as I am
using my Lap Top Computer to communicate with you. You should respond to
this e-mail if you are interested in carrying out this assignment on my
