Hello, I have written an earlier mail to you but no response. In my first mail I mentioned to you about my late client who deposited some fund with a Security/Finance Company here in SOUTH AFRICA before he died in a plane crash in Thialand in September 2006.Since his death I have received several letters from the Security/Finance Company where he deposited the fund before his death, to provide his next of kin or any of his relatives who can make claim to the funds before the end of the year or the Security/Finance Company will be left with no option than to confiscate the consignment and return the money back to the state. As it has been marked unclaimed for 3 years. I have conducted my personal search to see if I can make contact with any of his relatives but without success, it is in the course of my effort that I have to contact you. I have closely checked and since you bear the same surname with my deceased client it will be better to present you as the next of kin and the right beneficiary of the funds in the account. The total sum left in the account is $15M (Fifteen Million United States Dollars) I will provide you with all the necessary legal backing that is required until this money is paid out to you, and then we shall share it base on our agreement. So after consideration and you are interested in this business proposition, I will need your private telephone and fax numbers for direct communication on how the transfer will be effectively done. Please get back to me via e-mail for a more secured communication for now till this transaction I properly established FULL NAME: CONTACT ADDRESS: NATIONALITY: PHONE NUMBER: OCCUPATION: RELIGION: AGE/SEX: Thanks and God bless.
