Dear Friend,

In our search for a trustworthy individual to work with us on a very
important and confidential project, we came across your esteemed profile
through our Chambers of Commerce and Industries. My name is Mr. Mbeki
Sisulu, a principal executive officer in the audit department of the
Peoples Bank (PBSA) here in South Africa. During the yearly preliminary
in-house auditing of accounts, I discovered an account opened in 1995 and
since 2000 has remained dormant which means that nobody has been operating
it up till date. The total amount in this account is $15,500,000.00
Million less accrued interest.

Working together with the audit manager, we decided to investigate this
account for more information. We discovered that the owner of this
account, a foreigner has died inter-state leaving no heirs or next of kin
who could make a claim.

Presently, we are the only two people in our organization with access to
this information and we have decided to keep it that way and claim the
money for ourselves using a third party who will take the place of the
deceased (next of kin). We will supply the necessary information on the
deceased and ensure that the claim application is giving immediate
approval. Documents like the death certificate will be arranged and
forwarded to you for onward submission to the bank.

The project is risk-free, as we will use contacts that hold strategic
positions in the bank to effect a successful completion of the project,
and also ensure that all traces of our mutual involvement are completely
wiped off. These presents no problem as all documented evidence will be
directly under their supervision.

We have earmarked a commission of 25% of the total amount for you. A
further 5% will be set aside to cover expenses on both sides, which will
include expenses incurred in processing this claim. The remaining 70% you
will help us invest in a profitable stocks and shares in your country. We
would like to get your decision to this proposal as soon as possible. On
receipt of your decision, we will fax you or email you explicit details of
the already completed groundwork on this project.

You can contact me at all times on the above email account for more

Best regards,
Mbeki Sisulu
