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:

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 a Fax through my personal/direct fax number 27 11 507 
6266 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.
