Dear Sir/Madam, 


I am John Nkosi (FCAA), the chief accountant of African Development 
Bank Of South African (ADBSA). There is an online account opened in this 
bank in 1999 and since 2006 nobody has operated this online account. 
After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I 
do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. 
The owner of this account is Mr. Smith B. Zafer, a foreigner, and a 
miner at Kruger Gold Company. He Was a Geologist by profession and he died 
since 2000. No other person knows about this account or anything 
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation 
proved to me as well that this Company does not know anything about this 
account and the money involved is Fifteen Million United States Dollars 
(US$ 15 Million). You are the only person that I have contacted in this 
Business; so Please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next 
step to take immediately. Send also your telephone and fax . 
Meanwhile, I am contacting you because of the need to involve a 
foreigner with a foreign account as a beneficiary. I need your full 
co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve 
this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this 
account, which I will give to you as soon as you indicate your sincerity to 
co-operate with me, and capability to handle such amount in strict 
confidence and trust, according to my instruction and advice, for our mutual 
benefit because this opportunity may never come again in my life. I 
need a truthful and God fearing person in this Business because I don't 
want to make a mistake so I need your strong assurance and trust. With my 
position in the office I don't want anything that will jeopardize my 
job so I advice that we should make secrecy and confidentiality our 
primary working condition, bearing in mind that I am a public servant. I 
will also use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and 
onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance 
forms from the ministries and foreign exchange department. I will 
compensate you adequately depending on the terms we shall agree on 
subsequently. You can get back to me on this email address:
I look forward to your earliest reply. 

Yours sincerely,
