Dear Sir,
Pardon my approach without a prior consent.
My name is Mr Joseph Amanda , one of the FNB Bank manager here in South Africa
pretoria Branch.
I am a South Africa citizen married with two kids.
I have packaged a financial transaction that will
benefit both of us. As a FNB manager pretoria branch,it is my duty to send
financial reports to my head office in the capital city of pretoria
On the course of the last  three years 2002 end of the 
year report, I discovered that an account with US$
4 Million (FOUR MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) is declared dormant.
This account belongs to a foreign investor late Mr GodeFroid Bukuru.

I conducted a routine check and I discovered that he is death. So in my quest
to locate his family,proved unsuccessful before I got your contact.
The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money
remained after five years the money will be transferred into banking
treasury as unclaimed funds if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to
stand in as the next of kin to the depositor Late Mr GodeFroid Bukuru.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly
connected to this money thus I am compelled to request
for your assistance to receive this money into your
bank account.  
I agreed that 35% of this money would be for you as foreign partner,
while the balance will be for my colleagues and me. We will visit your
country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated
above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me and my colleagues
and trust is our watchword in this transaction.
 I do need to assure you that there is practically no risk involved
in this transaction. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer.
I shall provide all relevant depository documents,
that might be required, and as a banker I will use my
office to provide information that might be required.
Looking forward to hearing from you, incase of any
question do not hesitate to phone me on my mobile
number + 27-839-676-477 anytime.   

Mr Joseph Amanda .
