        [RE: TRANSFER OF US$168.559 MILLION TO YOUR
ACCOUNT.] 

I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important
business. Though, this medium (Internet) has been
greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it
because it still remains the fastest medium of
communication. However, this correspondence is
unofficial and private, and it should be treated as
such.

At first I will like to assure you that this
transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both
parties.

My name is Dr Johnson Mandela, I am  the operational
manager in account management section in charge of
credit and foreign bills of one of a prime banks here
in South Africa. On  a routine  inspection I
discovered  a  dormant  domiciliary  account  with  a
Balance of US$168,559,000. 00 (One hundred and sixty
eight million five hundred and fifty nine thousand U.S
dollars only}. The account holder[The deceased] was
believed to be incharge of Former Iraq President,
Saddam Hussein secret CRUDE OIL transactions in Africa
before his death. On further discreet investigation, I
also discovered that the account holder has died long
ago with his family on a fatal Auto-accident leaving
no beneficiary to the account and no other person
knows about this account.

I am in close contact with the manager of the bank
here who is my partner and he is willing to approve
the transfer to any reliable and trustworthy foreigner
with foreign bank account because the former operator
of the a/c is a foreigner. I am certainly sure that he
has no writen or oral WILL attached to the account ,no
beneficiary and nobody will come again for the claim
of this money. It is only a foreigner who can claim
this money with legal claims to the account
holder which I will provide to you if you are
interested, therefore I need your cooperation in this
transaction. This money will remain useless in this
dormant account if I did not transfer the fund out to
a foreign account.

I will provide the necessary information and documents
needed in order to claim this money. I only need your
cooperation as a foreigner to provide your safe bank
account information for the transfer. All arrangement
that will ensure a smooth transfer of the fund to the
account which you are to nominate is already in
place.You should provide me with your correct account
information for the transfer and your direct cell
phone lines for easy communication. I wish for utmost
confidentiality in handling this transaction. 

At the conclussion of this transaction, your share
will be 15% of the total transfer sum, 80% for me and
my partner while 5% will be set aside for any expenses
both parties might incure during the process of the
transfer. The fund will be transferred to your account
in two parts. I will first transfer USD 38 Million to
your account as a test transfer. I will fly over to
meet you after the successful transfer for sharing
according to the agreed percentages. I will have the
remaining balance of USD130,559 Million transferred to
your account only after the successful sharing of the
first transfer without any disappointment from your
side.

Let me hear from you URGENTLY by Email me. You can
also fax or call me for more detail. 

Best Regards, 
Dr.Johnson Mandela,
