Dear Sir 
I know that this massage will come as a surprise to you since we don't know each other, but for the 
purpose of introduction, I am MR. DANIEL DIMELANG, THE CHIEF AUDITOR of First National Bank of 
South Africa (F.N.B). First and foremost, I apologize using this medium to reach you for a 
transaction / business of this magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access 
reposed on this medium. Be informed that a member of South Africa Export Promotion Council (SEPC) 
who was at the Government delegation to your country during a trade exhibition gave your enviable 
credentials / particulars to me. I plead to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the 
execution of the deal described hereunder for the benefit of all the parties concerned and hope you 
will keep it as a top secret because of the nature of this transaction. 

There is an account opened in this Bank in 1998 and since 2006 nobody has operated on this account 
again. After going through some files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this 
money urgently, it would be forfeited. The owner of the account is Mr. Smith Andreas, a foreigner 
and miner at Kruger Gold Company, a geologist by profession, who, as learnt from his last known 
work place, unfortunately died in 2005, and ever since no person knows about this account or 
anything concerning it. The account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as 
well that his company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is 
US$21,750,000.00 (Twenty-One million, Seven hundred & Fifty thousand United States dollars). 
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because the money cannot be approved to a local bank here 
but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in United States dollars and 
the former owner of the account/fund Mr. Smith Andreas was also a foreigner. We will sign an 
agreement and be rest assured that it is 100% risk free and a genuine business. Please reply 
urgently so that I can inform you of the next step to take immediately. Send also your private 
phone numbers, email address including details of the account (a new account may be good for this) 
to be used for the deposit and transfer. 
I want us to meet face to face or sign a binding agreement to bind us together so that you can 
receive this money into a foreign account or any account of your choice where the funds will be 
safe. I will fly to your country for withdrawal and sharing and other investments. 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 immediately 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 because this opportunity may never come my way again 
in life. I need a truthful person in this business because I don't want to make mistakes. I need 
your strong assurance and trust. 
With my position now in the office, I can transfer this money to any reliable foreign account that 
you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your 
country for sharing. All documents of transaction will be destroyed immediately we receive this 
money, leaving no trace to any place. You can also come to discuss with me face to face after which 
will make remittance in your presence and two of us will fly to your country at least two days 
ahead of the money going into your account.
I will apply for annual Leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to receive 
this fund in your account. 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, you will be given 25.6% of 
the total amount, 59% will be for us while the 14.5% will be for expenses we might incur during the 
process of transfer. 
I look forward to your earliest reply through my e-mail address:

Best regards,
