Dear Sir/Madam, RE: TRANSFER OF $ 25,000.000.00 USD (TWENTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLAR) 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 sharing. 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 ADDRESSE:........ BANK A/ NO:........... BENEFICIARY NAME:..... A/C ROUTING NO/SWIFT CODE: AND YOUR PRIVTAE TELEPHONE 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.
