Dear Sir, 
With due  respect, I introduce myself to you for a better relationship. I am Mr FRED MARTINS ,CHIEF 
AUDITOR of FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA(F.N.B). Your contact is courtesy of Business online 
network via Internet as I decided to contact you for this beneficial transaction that is 100% risk 

During auditing, verifications/investigations in our bank at the end of last fiscal (financial) 
year, I discovered the sum of (US$26M)TWENTY SIX MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS in a dormant account 
belonging to Mr. CHARLES NEMAN,a German  international businessman who died along with his family 
in the November 5th,2004 plane crash in Abidjan west Africa. Our investigations revealed no 
survival or NEXT OF KIN/RELATIONS for claims as we have long been expecting someone to forward 
applications for claims as it applies to our banking regulations. Information / verifications from 
reliable sources confirmed that his supposed "NEXT OF KINS" died with him in the crash. Hence this 
for your perusals. 

However, I kept this information (SECRET) confidential within my jurisdiction to enable us submit 
claims and transfer this fund through trustworthy person whom we shall present to our bank as the 
BONAFIDE "NEXT OF KIN" to the deceased. We intend to credit this fund into any of your nominated 
(designated) offshore bank account for investments.Meanwhile, all domestic arrangements for claims 
has been put in place awaiting your acceptance to participate.
I will give you directives and all needed   information as soon as I receive your positive 

Kindly understand that we could not carry out this on our own as based on the simple facts that we 
are civil servants and secluded from operating foreign account and too, it will raise eyebrows on 
our side in terms of transfer being staff of the bank. Moreover, this fund belongs to a foreigner 
and demands same as next of kin to claim it. Hence your contact for   successful operation. My 
colleagues and I has resolved to offering you 25% of the total sum as commission, We will invest 
70% of our share in your country provided it is profit oriented. 5% of the total fund will be set 
aside to re-emburse all expenses to be incurred in the course of  running this transaction such as 
telephone and other minor expenses. I am assuring  you of a smooth and successful transaction 
provided you display maturity and observe confidentiality.
And it will interest you to know that the Reserve Bank(Apex) will approve credit of this fund into 
your account as contract payment to abstain you from all queries regarding the source (originality) 
of this fund and will provide you (beneficiary) with contractual (data) details to certify your 
bank or  government if the need arises. Therefore, be kind to clarify the following for my 

1. Can your account accommodate this fund in your local bank without government intervention or do 
you have an account outside your country where you may consider safe for this fund ?. 
2. What are taxation in your country like as I desire a low/free tax zone?.
