(RE: TRANSFER OF $172,654,000.00 

Dear Sir/Madam!! 

I sincerely ask for forgiveness for I know this may seem like a 
complete intrusion to your privacy but right about now this is my 
option of communication. This mail might come to you as a surprise and 
the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come into your mind; but 
please consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of 

I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional 
approach to starting a relationship. I am Mr Mr.Walter Muwandi, the 
personal account officer to the great late diseased who has an account 
in one of the top banks here in South Africa. The account was opened in 
2001 and he died in 2004 without a written or oral WILL and since 2004 
nobody has operated on this account again hence the money is floating 
and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for 
and Govt. of South Africa will confiscate the funds for their 
personal use which I personally don't want such incident to happen 
being that this is a great opportunity for me. 

My contact is for 
you to please assist me to transfer the fund ($172,654,000.00 USD) One 
Hundred & Seventy Two Million Six Hundred And Fifty Four Thousand 
United State Dollars from a Cooperate Bank here in South Africa to an 
oversea account. First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in 
this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly 
confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your ability and 
reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude. I 
solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the said amount into your 
safe account for onward investment.

You can either provide us with 
an existing account or to set up a new Bank account immediately to 
this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, 
as long as you will remain honest to me till the end of this important 
business trusting in you and believing that you will never let me down 
either now or in future because this business is my life. The owner of 
this account is a foreigner and no other person knows about this 
account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary 
and until his death he was the manager of the company. My investigation 
through the National immigration department & Ministries here proved to 
meas well that he was single as at the time of his entry into the 
Republic of South Africa. The amount in this account is USD 
($172,654,000.00 USD) One Hundred & Seventy Two Million Six Hundred And 
Fifty Four Thousand United State Dollars .

As a matter of fact, I 
have decided to transfer this fund abroad for investment. Your 
assistance as a foreigner is necessary because the management of the 
bank will welcome any foreigner who has correct information to this 
account which I will give to you immediately, if you are interested to 
do this business with me. There is no risk in this business. With my 
position and my personal contact with the manager of the bank, the 
money can be transferred to any account you can provide with assurance 
that this money will be 
intact pending our physical arrival in your 
country for sharing. We will start the first transfer with Fifty 
million [$50,000.000]. Upon successful transfer without any 
disappointment from your side, we shall
re-apply for the payment of the 
remaining balance of $122,654,000.00 Million to your account. I am only 
contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to 
a local person here, but can 
only be approved to any foreigner who has 
the correct information of the account, which I will provide for you. 
So you should provide me with your correct account details where you 
will like the fund to be 
transferred to, or you can set up a new 
account for the transfer even an empty account is ok. At the conclusion 
of the transfer you will take 45%, 6% will be for any expenses both 
parties incurred in the process of this business and the remaining 49% 
will be for me. As soon as I hear from you and upon your strong 
assurance that you will not let me down once the fund goes into your 
account I will then start the 
processing of the transfer of the fund 
to your account without further delay. If you are interested, please 
forward the following information as below: 
{1} Your Name/company's 
name and full address, 
{2} Bank Name:............ 
{3} Bank Address...
{4} Account No:.........

sent to the paying bank to remit funds into your nominated bank account 
within 5 official working days of receipt of the above information.
