From: The Manager Credit and Foreign Bills ABSA Bank of South Africa Harfield, Pretoria South Africa. Tel: +27 76 697 5949 Email:email@example.com Attention: Sir/Madam, My name is Mr. Douglas Baloyi, the Manager, Credit and Foreign Bills of ABSA BANK SOUTH AFRICA. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank with account number :908-14-255-114 whose name is Andreas Schranner (Mr.), a German property magnate age 64, his wife Maria, 62, their daughter Andrea Eich, 38, her husband Christian, 57, and their children Katharina, 8 and Maximilian, 10, all perished in the jet. [Concorde AF4590] With the whole passengers on-board on Monday, 31 July, 2000, 13:22 GMT 14:22 UK and for your perusal you can view this website below: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm 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$18.5M (Eighteen 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 more than eight years, because the money will be recalled to the Bank Treasury as "Unclaimed Fund" after this period. In view of this I got your contact through a Trade Journal when I was making a research on a foreigner I will use in this great opportunity. For your assistant, I am willing to give you 25% 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 Fill, 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 (5) banking days of receiving your response, after you apply to the bank as a "Relation" to the deceased. When you receive this letter, kindly send me an Email through my direct/personal I.D: firstname.lastname@example.org to signifying your decision. Please include your Private Tel/Fax Numbers for quick communication regarding this great opportunity that will definitely benefit both of us. Yours Truly, Mr. Douglas Baloyi.
