                         REQUEST FOR URGENT TRANSFER

In my quest for a reliable and trusted partner for a highly
important and lucrative venture cum investment, I came
across your contact as a reliable partner for this venture.
I am Sir Richard Mbali, one of the senior Accountants of
on this proposal, there is an account opened in this bank
since 1980 . After going through it, I discovered that if I
do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited
for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr. Ben Andreas,
a foreigner and a miner at Kruger gold co., a geologist by
profession was with his Family on holiday in his country.
They died in one of the Coastal areas across Asia that was
hit by massive tsunamis triggered by the worst earthquake
in 40 years. The number of people killed throughout Asia
has now reached over 220,000 with tens of thousands still
You've read about more than 220,000 people killed from one
of the most devastating tsunamis in the world's history.
Every day the number gets worse.
No other person knows about this and my investigation
further proved to me that his company does not know
anything about this account and the amount involved as he
made it his personal account. The money outstanding before
his death was (USD 26Million) Twenty Six Million United
States Dollars.
I am now contacting you as a foreigner because this money
cannot be approved to a national with a local bank account
here. But can only be approved to any foreign account
because the money is in US dollars and the former owner, a
foreigner. I implore you to act as foreigner and
beneficiary to the fund as I will then intimate you on the
processes abound as well as procure all the necessary
documents required to lay claim to the money.
If you are capable and willing to handle such amount in
strict confidence and trust according to my instructions
and advice for our mutual benefit I shall highly
appreciate. I need trusted person in this business because
I do not want to make mistakes; I need your strong
assurance and trust. With my position now in the office I
can effect transfer of this money to any foreigner's
reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that
this money will be intact pending my arrival in your
country for disbursement. On the alternative, you can come
down here to South Africa for us to meet one to one.

Send me your private telephone number upon receipt
of this proposal, if you genuinely want to assist and be a
co-partner. I will also want us to meet face to face, to
enable us sign a binding agreement. As soon as you receive
this money into a foreign account or any account of your
choice where the fund will be safe. I will proceed to your
country for onward percentage distributions and investment.
I need your full co-operation to make this work because the
management is ready to approve this payment to any
foreigner, who has correct information of this account,
which I will give to you later immediately. I will use my
position and influence to effect legal approvals and onward
transfer of this money to your account with appropriate
clearance forms of the ministries and foreign exchange
departments. At the conclusion of this business, for your
assistance, 25% of the total amount will be accrue for
you,70% for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties
might have incurred during the process of the transfer.
I implore you to maintain the absolute confidentiality of
Your earliest response is urgently awaited.

Truly Yours,

Sir Richard Mbali
