My name is Mr. Peter Nkosi, the manager, Credit and Foreign Bills of BIDVEST BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank with account number 908-14-255-114 whose name is Chung Timothy, (Mr.), who died in a plane crash [Korean Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers onboard on August 6, 1997. And for your perusal you can view this website Ref: /WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list

Since the demise of this customer, I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$15.5M (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come up as his next of kin. And the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay long in the bank else it will be return to the bank escrow account as unclaimed funds.

In view of this I got your contact through a trade journal when I was ma king a research on a foreigner I will use in this great opportunity. For your assistance I am willing to give you 40% of the total amount. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the letter of application which you will type sign and send back to our Bank to enable us start this processing of this claim.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be completed within five banking days of receiving your response, after you apply to the bank as next of kin to the deceased. I now solicit for your assistance to present you as the next of kin as every other arrangement has been concluded by me.

Please go through this message carefully and if you are interested in assisting me, kindly notify me urgently via my private email addresses: (, as time is of great essence in this transaction. Upon your acceptance to assist me I shall provide you with more information.

Till I hear from you I will not contact anyone, have a wonderful day.

Mr. Peter Nkosi.
