Appealing to those of faith
Posted Oct 2005
Appealing to those of faith is an obvious ploy for scammers, alas they are more likely to trust, especially if they are of the same faith as the apellant

Greetings in the name of Allah.
This email message will be of interest to you if you are a true servant of Allah with a deep love for humanity
and also if you are touched by the series of strange and unfavorable events that have recently struck humanity
in various parts of the world ranging from the TSUNAMI DISASTER to the FAMINE in Niger and the recent
HURRICANE KATRINA disaster in the united states.
If you are a Muslim, this will be interesting to you if you are concerned about the bad name that have been tagged
on Islamism due to the fact that all cases of terrorism have been associated with Islamism. Is this actually what
Allah demands of us? Why do we allow group of religious fanatics to dictate the faith of this our great religion?
Anyway, I am formerly Miguel Marcos Llera from Iran but have lived most part of my life in Cuba .I was born into
a devoted catholic family. All through my life I have been doing business and I was into gold mining and selling.
I met our creator, the most holy and merciful one, Almighty Allah a while ago when I was having a business deal with
one of my partners from U.A.E and from that day I was given the Islamic bath and my name changed to Afzal Wahid Nasir.
Now my name is Afzal Wahid Nasir Llera.
On 10th February 2004, my family and I as well as my business partner took a flight from kish to sharjah and we flew
kish airline. We had a plane crash and 43 passengers died including all members of my family and my very good
friend/business partner .You can confirm this from the following websites.
After this tragic incidence, I was moved over to our home city where I am presently under serious medical attention
but so far I still have notimproved and my case is worse because Owing to the fact that I was born into a catholic home
and my family members know that i am now a devoted Muslim, they have neglected me and left me to suffer in pains.
I really do not understand why they should withdraw their love for me on religious grounds. I still love them anyway
and do not have anything against the Christians or any other religion.
My health position has not been encouraging and from the present development I can tell that I would not be able to
survive this whole pain anymore. I know any moment from now I will be on my way to be with our creator Allah.
What disturbs me is the mass of wealth that I have toiled for all my life which I am about to leave behind.
Am I going to leave it like that to waste or let my family members (who are already well to do) have it
when there are millions of people out there who need it more? That was the great question in my heart But by the
leading of Allah, I am taking this bold step to let you know that I want to leave in your care the sum of
US$12.6M(Twelve Million Six Hundred Thousand Dollars) which I Kept safe somewhere.
I would want you to use this fund for the enhancement and propagation of the word of Almighty Allah and the
major subject area should be channeled towards enlightening Muslims that Terrorism is not ordained by almighty
Allah and should be despised and fought against. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a
true servant of Allah who will utilize these funds the way I am going to instruct here in.
My main aim of doing this is for the propagation and upholding of the message of Islam especially in the subject
line stated above. My target area is the youth whom the future of any great country largely lies on. The
message of Islam must not only be preached and upheld, but also our youths have to be called back to the right
path and thereby reawaken their consciousness. High moral values must be upheld, promoted and inculcated
into these young lives. Also, a major part of the funds should be used for the poor and the needy.
Build old peoples home and orphanages and support as many widows and fatherless children that you can reach,
support those who have been stricken by War, famine or a disaster especially the Tsunami disaster that
struck our Asian brethren recently (May Allah preserve their lives), the Famine that is presently in Niger
and the Hurricane Katrina Victims in the united states.
For the fact that my relatives have turned their back on me and now considers me an infidel because of my faith,
know that if I entrust this to them, they will never utilize the funds for the purpose which it is
meant. On this note I am now resting my dream on your shoulders. Even as you agree to help me carry out this
uty I want you always remember that Allah won't ask what you did to help yourself, but will ask what you did to
For the now I cannot engage in any telephone conversation due to strict restrictions against the use of in my ward
due to the presence of some medical equipment which reacts to telephone waves (so I was told). If you
are interested in undertaking this divine assignment does get back to me to me via any of my private mail
addresses:email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Praise is due to Allah Who brought everything into existence and May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon our noble
Prophet Mohammed and those who follow his footsteps till the Day of Judgment. May the peace of Allah
rest upon you and your household and may he bless you richly as you respond to this call.
Afzal Wahid Nasir Llera.
