I am Baruti Giddens an Eastern Cape Province based travels trading with a 
company StarSky Travels & Tours (Pvt) Ltd. I am making this contact with you 
based on your last name searched via internet if you willing to assist me

with sincerity, trust and Confidentiality. I have decided to seek a 
confidential co-operation with you in the Execution of the deal described 
hereunder for the benefit for us and hope you will keep it as a top secret 
because of the Nature of this transaction.

Within August 2008 I received contact from drilling and production Larsen 
Energy Ltd to arrange Airplane tickets to senior manager for Maintenance 
Technician and his family summer holiday trip to Dallas USA, we agreed and 
charged his family through the company $6,500 but sometime September 2008 I 
check my account and confirmed $650,000 was mistakenly transferred from the 
Washington Mutual Bank, Houston Texas United States (US). I issued a 
complain to that bank on January 15, 2009 to clarify the remitter statue and 
it was confirmed that from Larsen Energy Ltd carried the transfer but 3 
weeks later I received telephoned from the banker explained that man is 
death and his wife restated that his late husband didnít notify any transfer 
error of that nature which means it is accurate transaction,  I have issued 
a check to that bank twice to my clients, now This amount $610,000 
represents the balance of the total Value amount wired onto my bank account 
needs an authorization from the man family or next of kin with any foreign 
bank account/US bank account you will provide by filling in an application 
through Ministry of Justice here in South Africa and the Washington Mutual 
Bank in Houston for the transfer of rights and privileges of the fund before 
the Bank will carry about transfer to your account in principles gotten 
approval to remit by Key Tested Telegraphic Transfer (K.T.T).i want if you 
can visit me in person so that we will have talks in respect of this 
transaction since you have same last name with the man family, I can not 
travel due to my health conditions. I have examined the root cause of 
stalled progress from the bank workers to steal the fund out of my account 
since there was delay from that family to come forward to claim the fund 
after I officially complained incident. The business itself is 100% safe, on 
your part provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. 
Also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful 
execution of this Transaction. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope 
that you will not disappoint me. Endeavor to contact me immediately through 
my private Phone NO +27-714126765 or reply this offer by email contact

I want to assure you that my partners and I are in apposition to make the 
payment of this claim possible as soon the bank in Houston contact for 
permission, provided you can give me a very strong assurance.  And also to 
guarantee that your share will be secured and please, remember to treat this 
matter very confidential, because i will not comprehend with any
form of exposure. Once again, remember that time is of great essence in this
