Dear Sir, 


I am Mr. Mark Dube Principal treasury officer with Ned bank South Africa. I have decided to contact 
you through this medium based on a business proposal, which will be of mutual benefit to both of 
us. Please this letter contains some confidential materials and should be deleted from your mail 
box indicating that you are not interested concerning the proposal.                 

Mr. Ziya Bazhayev made a numbered time (Fixed) deposited for twelve calendar months, valued at US$ 
7,450,000.00 (Seven Million Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) in my branch. 
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a 
month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, National Mining 
Corporation that Mr. Bazhayev died from a plane Crash. You may follow the Link below to read about 
the plane Crash which cost Mr.  Bazhayev his life: .On further investigation, I found out that he 
did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made 
further investigation and discovered that Mr. Bazhayev did not declare any next of kin in all his 
official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. 

This sum of (US$ 7,450,000.00) is still sitting in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over 
with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it.  According to 
the South African Law, at the expiration of 9{Six} years, the money will revert to the ownership of 
the South African Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my proposal is 
that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Ziya Bazhayev so that 
this money will not be reverted by the government. 

If this request matches with your inward intention for success and greatness, then you are urged to 
make a quick response indicating your interest and readiness to participate and work with me to 
make this successful. You can contact me through my e-mail address. Please observe utmost 
confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us 
because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. 

Awaiting your urgent reply 
Thanks and regards, 
Mark Dube
