Dear Friend, My name is Mr. Henry Kagiso Thapelo, a staff with the Credit and Foreign Bills of Standard Bank of South Africa . I am writing you in respect of an account that belongs to a foreign customer (Mr. Chung Timothy) of our bank who died in a ghastly plane crash [Korean Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers on board on August 6, 1997. For your perusal you can view this website Ref: http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list Since the death of the deceased, nobody has come forward to claim his funds of US$15,500,000.00 hence I am seeking your assistance to act as the next of kin because the funds will not be released unless somebody applies. I'm giving you 25% for your assistance. Note that this is 100% risk-free business as long as you keep this confidential. Include your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication.
