FROM: MR.JOSEPH MAGWAI. JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA. Tel: +27-7-3019-900-9. Email: email@example.com ATTN: DIRECTOR/CEO. It is indeed my pleasure to contact you as a reliable and trusted partner for a transaction of this magnitude. I am Mr. Joseph Magwai, In charge of Credit and Foreign bills of my Bank, AMALGAMATED BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (ABSA). I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank whose name is Mr. Andreas Schranner a citizen of Germany who perished in a plane crash [Concorde Air Flight AF4590] with the whole passengers aboard on 31 July2000. And for your perusal you can view this web site: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm Since the demise of this our customer, I personally has 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$25.5M (Twenty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which has been with my 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 to be the 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 after this period. In view of this, I got your contact through a trade journal. And I have agreed to give you 30% of the total if you can handle this transaction in ultimate sincerity and secrecy. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the application, bank's fax number and the next step to take. 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 fund transfer can be finalized within five working days, after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased. Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your decision including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quicker communication on received of this letter. Yours Sincerely, Mr. Joseph Magwai.
