Dear Sir/Madam, 

I am Mr Casper Lamprecht, Bank Manager of a reputable bank in Johannesburg,Gauteng Province, and 
Republic of South Africa. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.On 
feb 27, 2002,a British Oil Consultant/contractor with the South African Mining Corporation, (Name 
deliberately with held) made a numbered time (Fixed)Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at 
[$13,500.000.00 USD. Thirteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars] in my branch. 
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.

After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the South 
African Mining Corporation, that the depositor died from an automobile accident. On further 
investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next 
of kin was fruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that the depositor did 
not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,US$13,500,000.00 is still sitting in 
my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No 
one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of Republic of South Africa,at the 
expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the South African Government 
if nobody applies to claim the fund.Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a 
foreigner to stand in as THE NEXT OF KIN to the depositor so that the fruits of this old man's 
labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt governmen

This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the 
attorney will prepare the Necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next 
of kin.We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarisation of the WILL and to 
obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour for the 
transfer. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the 
transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.The money will be paid into your 
account for us to share in the ratio of 65%for me and 35% for you.There is no risk at all as all 
the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch 
Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please 
reply immediately via the private email address .Upon your response, I shall then provide you with 
more details and relevant documents that will help you unders
and the transaction.

Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.Also,Please 
observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable 
for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my email address.

Best Regards.

Mr.Caper Lamprecht.
