Mr. Peter Moyo,
South Africa Deposit Bank Ltd,
Johannesburg, South Africa.

My Dear,

I am Mr. Peter Moyo, manager of audit at the foreign remittance
department of the South Africa Deposit Bank. In my department, we
discovered an abandoned sum of US$14,700,000.00 (Fourteen Million, Seven
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only) in an account that belonged to
one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family, on
November 1998, in a ghastly plane crash.

Since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his
next-of-kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it
unless somebody applied for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased
asindicated in our banking guidelines. Unfortunately, nobody has come
forward to claim this money.

It is based on this that I have decided to establish a cordial business
relationship with you by contacting you. We want you to present yourself
as the next of kin through your relation with the deceased, so that the
funds can be remitted into your account. Moreover, we do not want the
money to go into a government account as unclaimed bills. The banking laws
and guidelines here stipulates that any account abandoned or is dormant
for a period of 10 years, is deemed closed and all money contained
there in forfeited to the government treasury account.

Now, it is being speculated that the above sum will be transferred into
the government account as an unclaimed fund on or before the middle of
2008, when nobody comes forward to lay claims. The reason for requesting
you to present yourself as next of kin, is occasioned by the fact that the
deceased (customer) was a foreigner, and we have access to his detailed
bio data which you will hold as a weapon to present yourself as the next
of kin.

The mode of sharing after a successful transfer of the money into your
account, shall be 65% for me. For the role you will be expected to play in
this deal, i have agreed to give you 25% of the total sum and 10% for the
expenses we are going to encounter by both of us in the course of this
transaction. Therefore, you are expected to reply this letter indicating
your readiness and interest to participate in this business.

After receiving your reply, you will be communicated to with the exact
steps to take. I expect your urgent response. I shall contact you for
further discussion on this matter, to enable us conclude this transaction
urgently without any delay or hitch.

Please treat this business proposal as strictly confidential for security
reasons considering my official position here in SADB. Do confirm your
positive disposition towards this transaction by
reaching me at (

Mr. Peter Moyo.
