I am MR. DAVID ANDREW, the Chief Auditor of the NedBank of South Africa (Ned Bank).  I got your 
contact address from the Trade and Exhibition Centre here in Johannesburg and you are the only 
person that I have contacted in this business with believe that you will not let me down and we 
will work together to develop trust and confidence in this business.  
After going through some old file in the records department, I discovered that there is an account 
opened in 1980 belonging to the late Mr. Jerome N. Snaga a foreigner and a miner at Kruger Gold 
Company a geologist by profession and since 1990 nobody has operated the account following Mr. Sna 
gas death in 1990.  Since then, no other person knows about this account, and the amount involved 
I would like to first transfer US$12 million into your overseas account as a foreigner because Mr. 
Snaga was a foreigner then later I will transfer the remaining US$70 million before joining you in 
person for disbursement and investment opportunity which you will be an asset to it.   
I am only contacting you because of your foreign status as this money cannot be approved to a local 
bank here, but can be approved to any foreign account because the money is in a foreign currency 
(US dollars) and former owner of  the account, Mr. Snaga was a foreigner. Because of the need to 
involve a foreign account, I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the 
management is ready to approve the payment to whoever has the correct information to this account, 
of whi ch I will give you later, if you are able to handle such amount in strict confidence and 
trust according to my instruction and advice for our mutual benefits because this opportunity will 
never come  again in our lives.  
I need a trustworthy person in this business because I don't want to make a mistake and I need your 
strong assurance, trust and  reliability. With my position now in the office and the influence of 
the top bank director of the South African Reserve Bank, I will make sure that this money is 
transferred into any reliable account, which you can provide with the assurance that this money 
will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for my sharing. 
Your physical presence is also welcomed in South Africa in which the transfer will be done in your 
presence.  I will destroy all the documents of the transaction immediately you receive this money, 
leaving no trace in any place.
I have the tendency to invest my own share of the money in your country in expectation to a sound 
management and a good capital returns according to your advice. 
Rest assured you stand no risk of any kind as the fund belong to us now, therefore after the 
eventual stage of the transfer of this fund, I am offering you 30% of the total fund, 65% will be 
for my investment while 5% will be set aside for expenses that m ight be incurred during the cause 
of the transfer of the fund.
I strongly believe that associating with you to embark on this fund transfer and other business 
ventures will derive a huge success there after. I will use my position to effect approvals for 
onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance form from the ministries 
and foreign exchange department. 
I am counting on your sense of confidentiality, as it is my desire that you keep this to yourself 
and endeavor to furnish me with your private telephone (mobile preferably), fax numbers and your 
bank details where you would like the first payment to be transferred into for a quick attention.
Looking forward to your urgent respond. 
Yours truly,
