I sincerely hope that this letter will not come to you as a surprise
Or embarrassment, since upon each other we have never laid eyes
I am deeply sorry if I have in any manner disturbed your privacy
Let me introduce myself, I am Dr Christopher F. S. McGee

I was into currency exchange business, a British national from the UK
I have been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer and it won't go away
According to the docs, now I have only a few months to live
I didn't lead my life well, never wanted to give

But now God has called me, did I mention I was stupendously rich
And giving away all my money has become a real bitch
I gave some to my family to pass it on to those in need
But they kept it all to themselves in a show of unmitigated greed

I have two millions dollars ($2,000,000.00) with a financial institution abroad
I'd like you to help me give it to charity, choose any of your own accord
I shall communicate with you, and of the transfer give further detail
Whatever your decision, I thank you for taking the time to read this email

(Sydney, Australia - 2008)
