From: V. Jackson I am Mr. Vuyo Jackson, the manager, Credit and Foreign Bills of BIDVEST BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer whose name is Chung Timothy, (Mr.), who died in a plane crash [Korean Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers onboard on August 6, 1997. Since the demise of this customer, I personally have 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$15.5M (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a very long time. 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 long in the bank else it will be return to the bank escrow account as unclaimed funds. In view of this I got your reference in my search for someone I will use in this great opportunity. For your assistance I am willing to give you 40% of the total amount. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you letter of application, which you will type, sign and send back to me to enable me start the process. 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 five banking days. I now solicit for your assistance to present you as the next of kin to the deceased as every other arrangement has been concluded by me. Please go through this message carefully and if you are interested, kindly notify me urgently via my private email addresses: (firstname.lastname@example.org), as time is of great essence in this transaction. Upon your acceptance to assist me I shall provide you with more information. Sorry and over look this business proposition if it offends your moral and ethic values. Have a wonderful day, Mr. Vuyo Jackson.
