I am Mr. Thato Lucas Mbalula manager, First securities of FNB of South Africa. In July 2010, we structured funds for one of my customer by the name of MR. ABU-BAKR YUNIS JABR a Numbered Time Deposit, valued at $40,500,000.00 (forty Million, Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) under NON-DISCLOSURE ACT. I got your contact from your country’s business directory book that I saw in South African Chambers of Commerce and industries office and I decided to reach you because presently I am desperate need of a trust worthy foreign person for this proposal.
The owner of this account is COL. MUMMAR GADDAFI, late Libyan president who died since 2011 during Libya uprising and NATO invasion in Libya. No other person knows this account or anything concerning it as it was structured by his personal Aid, MR ABU-BAKR YUNIS JABR who died alongside him, the account has no other beneficiary and no investigation proved to me as well that his family does not know anything about this account and the money involved is forty Million, Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars ($40,500,000.00). I want us to first transfer US$20 Million from this money into your safe overseas account before the rest can be transferred. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local bank here, but only be approved to any foreign account been it personal or investment account.
In accordance with South African Government Law, at the expiration of 5 ( Five ) years, the money will be reverted back to the ownership of the Government of South African if nobody comes forward for the claim. Consequently, I want to present you as the next of kin or associate to this late customer; hence you are a foreigner like him and the $20,000,000.00 (forty Million, Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) will be transferred first to your Bank account and after the successful transfer of the money will be shared in the ratio 65% for me 30% for you and 5% to cover all accountable tax; expenses after the deal.
There is no risk involved; we cannot release the fund from his account unless applies for claim as the next-of kin to the deceased or an associate as indicated in our banking guidelines and Banking ethics of South Africa. It may interest you to know that I can secure from the probate an order of mandamus to present you as the family foreign partner / beneficiary) I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you as soon as you indicate your sincerity to co-operate with me, and capability to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit because this opportunity may never come again in lives.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message before we negotiate percentage on your response for conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for us for investment purposes. If this proposal is acceptable to you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.
