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 MR. Nelson M. Buthelezi, one of the senior Accountants of (ABSA BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA) to highlight you on this proposal, there is an account opened in this bank since 1996 till 2003 after which, nobody has operated on this account again till date. After going through some old files in the records, 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. David Andreas, a foreigner, and a miner at ANDREAS GOLD CO. a geologist by profession who died since 2003. 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.
