Dea Sir/Madam, I am Mr. Bobby Jose, Chief Accountant of one of the leading Bank in South Africa. I am writing to ask for your indulgence in re-profiling funds, which we want to keep under your supervision, for sharing among our self. The total amount involved is US$6,200,000.00 (Six Million, Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) only. I am only contacting you as a foreigner, because this fund cannot be approved to a local Bank here, as the funds are in US Dollars, belonging to one Mr. Morris Thompson. An American nationality, a businessman based in Johannesburg South Africa and London in UK. He died since 2000, in air crash along his wife & Daughter on 31/01/2000. You can confirm from this website http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ No other person knows about this account or anything concerning it and the account has no other beneficiary. The Strategy is to use our influence as Chief Accountant/Directors of the bank to approve the funds to you, as the next of kin to the depositor. This is very important because if no body put a claim for the money, the Board members of this Bank will share and divert the money for their own personal use as cases of other unclaimed accounts in this Bank has shown. I am promising and assuring you that as soon as the money is approved and transferred to your account, I will destroy all the documents in order to leave no trace behind. If you are interested please get back to me by mail or through the above phone number, for more details. I wait for your urgent and positive response. Regards, Mr. Bobby Jose
