I am Khumalo Jeffery, Head Accounts at First National Bank   Management Section of a well-known 
Bank here in South Africa. One of our accounts with holding balance of US$15,500,000 (Fifteen 
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) has been dormant for some years. From my 
investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account is a Hong Kong National by name Engr 
Wing Chiu Lee, who died in an automobile accident along Pretoria N1 High-Way. Since then nobody has 
done anything as regards to the claiming of this money as he has no family member that is aware of 
the existence of either the account or the fund. Several attempts to trace any of his relative were 
unsuccessful, and also Information from the National Immigration office states that late Engr Wing 
Chiu Lee was single on point of entry into South Africa.

Our Financial Institution is presently and by law the custodian of the money belonging to the 
deceased, whose account I am responsible for monitoring and officiating. Since we got information 
about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or business associate to come and claim his 
money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or business 
associate to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately no one did. It 
is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and 
release the money to your account as the next of kin or business associate.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remains dormant after eight years; 
the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for your 
assistance and maximum co-operation as a foreign citizen is highly needed to release this fund. A 
30% of the total sum will be allocated to you after a successful transfer of the money into your 
account, and 70% will be for me and my associates. Please note that I don't have any asses to 
withdraw or claim this money because it was insured by the deceased. I will indulge you at this 
point to understand that this is privileged information and must be strictly confidential.

I have confidentially discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to 
find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles 
as the fund is Legitimate and does not originate from drug or money laundry.

On your interest, please reply as soon as possible.

Yours truly,

Khumalo Jeffery

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
