OF ($ 18,000,000.USD)

My name is Micheal  Biko, and I 
work in the International operation 
department in a Local Bank here in 
South Africa. On a routine inspection I 
discovered a dormant 
domiciliary account with a BAL. Of 18,000,000 (Eighteen 
Million USD) 
on further discreet investigation, I also discovered that the 
holder has long since passed away (dead) leaving no beneficiary to 

The bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the 
operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from Iraq in particular 
and I am 
certainly sure that he is dead, and nobody will come again 
for the claim of 
this money A foreigner can only claim this money with 
legal claims to the 
account Holder; therefore I need your cooperation 
in this transaction.

I will provide the necessary information needed 
in order to claim this 
money, But you will need to open an account 
where this can be transferred. 
If interested send your private 
Telephone No. And Fax number including full 
details of the account to 
be used for the Deposit I wish for utmost 
confidentiality in handling 
this transaction as my job and the future of my 
family would be 
jeopardized if it were breached.

The informations will be as 

Bank Name.........
Bank Address........
A/C Number..............
Swift Code No..............
Routing Number................

I want to assure you that the 
transaction is without risk if due process is 
followed accordingly. 
Finally I will give you 25% for your corporation.
I look forward to a 
favorable response from you.

Thank's for your maxinium co-operation 
and remain blessed.

Best Regards,

Micheal  Biko.
