                                    PERSONAL ASSISTANCE!! 

In my quest for a reliable and trusted partner for a highly important and lucrative venture cum 
investment, I came across your contact as a reliable partner for this venture. 

I am Mr.  Phill  Iseeh, one of the senior Accountants of FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (FNB). 
To highlight you on this proposal, there is an account opened in this bank since 1980 till 1990 
after which, nobody has operated on this account again till date. 
After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money 
out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr. Andreas B. Smith, 
a foreigner, and a miner at Kruger gold co., a geologist by profession who died since 1990. No 
other person knows about this and my investigation further proved to me that his company does not 
know anything about this account and the amount involved as he made it his personal account. The 
money outstanding before his death was (USD 18.5 Million) Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand 
United States Dollars.

I am now contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a national with a 
local bank account here. But can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in US 
dollars and the former owner, a foreigner. I implore you to act as foreigner and beneficiary to the 
fund as I will then intimate you on the processes abound as well as procure all the necessary 
documents required to lay claim to the money. 

If you are capable and willing to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my 
instructions and advice for our mutual benefit I shall highly appreciate. I need trusted person in 
this business because I do not want to make mistakes; I need your strong assurance and trust. With 
my position now in the office I can effect transfer of this money to any foreigner's reliable 
account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my arrival in 
your country for disbursement. On the alternative, you can come down here to South Africa for us to 
meet one to one. 

Send me your private telephone and fax numbers upon receipt of this proposal, if you genuinely want 
to assist and be a co-partner. As soon as you receive this  money into a foreign account or any 
account of your choice where the fund will be safe. I will proceed to your country for onward 
percentage distributions and investment. I need your full co-operation to make this work 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 later immediately. I will use my position and influence to 
effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance 
forms of the ministries and foreign exchange departments. 

At the conclusion of this business, for your assistance, 25% of the total amount will be  accrue 
for you, 70% for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the 
process of the transfer .I implore you to maintain the absolute confidentiality of this 
transaction. If you’re interested and willing to assist me on this business proposal, please reply 
to this email address:

Your earliest response is urgently awaited. 

Truly Yours,
