Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Gracia A Romanies. Credit
officer of Capitec Financial Bank. I have a concealed business suggestion
for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client names withheld who was an
Iraqi Business Man and also Deals on Arms with the South African Government
made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of
Nineteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only (US$19.5)
in my branch. Upon maturity several notices were sent to him, even during
the war, again after the war several notifications were sent and still no
response came from him. We later found out that my client and his family
had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home in Iraq.
After further investigation it was also discovered that my client did not
declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of
his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my
office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Nineteen
Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my
bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is
that according to the laws of my country at the expiration ten years the
funds will revert to the ownership of the South African Government if
nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, I contacted you
after lot of search which I believe that you bear the same surname with my
deceased client which I want to present you as one of his surviving family
member so as to enable you put a claim as the next of kin of my late client
and we shall slip the funds as soon as it get to your nominated account.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall
come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the
necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to my client,
all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with
your full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job.
After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in
for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of
probate/Administration in your favour for the movement of the funds to an
account that will be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in
the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will
prepare all the necessary documents.
Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning
this issue.

Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we
shall share in the ratio of 65% for me, 30% for you and 5% for any expenses
incurred during the course of this operation. Should you be interested
please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication,
you can write me via my email box and I will
provide you with more details of this operation. Your earliest response to
this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards.
Gracia A Romanies.
