ATTN: THE PRESIDENT / DIRECTOR, Dear Sir, My name is Dr. Jerry Hopkins, Manager Credit and Foreign bills Department of NED BANK SOUTH AFRICA. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank, Cho, Kwi young (Mr.), an American citizen who died in a plane crash [Korean Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers on board on August 6Th 1997. And for your perusal you can view this web sitehttp://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list Since the demise of this customer, I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$5.2M (FIVE MILLION TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) which has been with our branch for many years now. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come up as his next of kin, and the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay for too long hence the money will be recalled to the bank treasury if no one claims it. In view of this I got your contact through a trade journal when I was making a search on a foreigner that will help us in this great opportunity. For your assistant I am willing to give you 30% of the total amount. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you THE NEXT OF KIN claim FORM for the immediate conclusion of this business. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be completed within few bank working days of receiving your response, after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased. Kindly send me a mail or call me signifying your interest. Please include your private Tel / Fax numbers for quick communication. I am waiting for your response. Yours Sincerely, DR. Jerry Hopkins E-mail: email@example.com Phone: +27737235165
