Dear Sir/Madam,

           RE: TRANSFER OF $ 25,000.000.00 USD

I am Mr.Fredrick Weller, the Auditor General of Africa
development banks here South Africa, during the course of
our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account
opened in the bank in 1993 and since 1995 nobody has
operated on this account again. After going
through some old files in the records I discovered that the
owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money
is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it
will beforfeited for nothing.

The owner of this account is Mr. Howard Sweeney, a
foreigner, a miner and an industrialist.He made millions of
dollars before he died isteriously .Since 1993 no other
person knows about this account or anything concerning it.
My investigation proved to me that the account has no other
beneficiary and that Mr.Howard Sweeney until his death was
the manager Sweeney Coy.(pty). SA. We will start the first
transfer with six million dollars [$6,000,000.00] upon
successful transaction without any disappoint from your
side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining
amount to your account.

The amount involved is (USD 25M) Twenty Nine million United
States Dollars only. I want to first transfer$6,000.000 [Six
million United States Dollar] from this money into a safe
foreigners account abroad
before the rest, but I don't know any foreigner. I am
revealing this 
to you with believein God that you will never let me down in
this business. Also send your private telephone number and
fax number including the full details of the account to be
used for the deposit.

I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down
in this business proposition. With my influence and the
position of a bank official whom is working in our favour we
can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account
which you can provide with assurance that this money will be
intact pending our physical arrival in your country for

So you should provide me with your correct account detail
where you will like the fund to be transferred or you can
set up a new account for the transfer even an empty account
is ok. The A/C Details have to be arranged as follows,

BANK NAME:............
BANK A/ NO:...........

The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction
immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any
place and to build confidence you can come immediately to
discuss with me face to face after which I will make this
remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your
country at least two days ahead of the money going into the
account. At the conclusion of this business, you will be
given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5%
will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during
the process of transferring.
I look forward to your earliest response contact me in
my private email address

Best Regards,
Mr.Fredrick Weller.
