Urgent/Confidential Business Proposal:

From: Mr. Khumalo Bhafana
Email Address:
01 April 2009.

I am Mr. Khumalo Bhafana, Senior Staff, with a Bank here in Johannesburg -
South Africa. I got your contact while searching for a reliable someone to
contact for this transaction in regards to a business transfer for a huge
sum of money in a dormant account.

I need your assistance to transfer to overseas Twenty Million United
States Dollars Only (US$20,000.000.00).  I am seeking your humble
assistance to provide either an existing bank account or set up a new Bank
account to receive this fund, even an empty account can serve this
purpose, or you help to seek an honest and, reliable businessman who can
assist us. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make
any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that this
transaction is being handled by me and my colleagues, who are also
departmental heads in the same bank.

During the course of our auditing we discovered a floating fund in a
domiciliary account opened in the bank in 2000 and since 2004 nobody has
operated on this account, after going through some old files in the
records we discovered that the owner of the account who is a foreigner
died in Madrid Bombing of 11th of March 2004,without any traceable next of
kin hence the dormant nature of the account and if nobody come to claim
this funds it will be re- channel to government coffers as unclaimed

If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the
trust I have bestowed in you.

I require you to provide the following information:

Your full names:
Telephone number:

I await your swift response via my personal email:

Mr. Khumalo Bhafana
