Dear Sir/Madam,


I am John Nkosi (FCAA), the chief accountant of African Development
Bank (ADB). There is an online account opened in this bank in 1999 and since
2001 nobody has operated this online account. After going through some old
files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out
urgently it would be forfeited for nothing.

The owner of this account is Mr.Smith B. Zafer, a foreigner, and a miner at Kruger Gold Company. He 
Was a Geologist by profession and he died since 2000. No other person knows about this account or 
anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as 
well that this Company does not know anything about this account and the money involved is Ten 
Million,five hundred thousand United States Dollars (US$10,500,000 ). You are the only person that 
I have contacted in this Business.

Please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take  immediately. Send also your 
telephone and fax numbers. Meanwhile, I am contacting you because of the need to involve a 
foreigner with a foreign account as a beneficiary. I need your full co-operation to make this work 
fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct 
information of this account, which I will give to you as soon as you indicate your sincerity to 
co-operate with me, and capability to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust, according 
to my instruction and advice, for our mutual benefit because this opportunity may never come again 
in my life.

 I need a truthful and God fearing person in this Business because I doní»t want to make a mistake 
so I need your strong assurance and trust. With my position in the office I don't want anything 
that will jeopardize my job so I advice that we should make secrecy and confidentiality our primary 
working condition, bearing in mind that I am a public servant. I will also use my position and 
influence to effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your
account with appropriate clearance forms from the ministries and foreign
exchange department. I will compensate you adequately depending on the terms we shall agree on 
subsequently. You can get back to me on this email address:

I look forward to your earliest reply.

Yours sincerely,
