Dear Sir or Madam,


I want to transfer ($125,000.000.00 USD) One Hundred & Twenty five million 
United States Dollars from a Prime Bank here in South Africa to an oversea 
account. First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this 
transaction. This is by virtue of it's 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 unward investment.You 
can either provide us with an existing account or to set up a new Bank 
account immediately to receive 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.

I am the personal account officer to the great late INDUSTRIALIST who has an 
account in one of the top banks here in South Africa. The account was opened 
in 1998 and he died in 2003 without a written or oral WILL and since 2003 
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 nothing.

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 proved to me as 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$125 Million (One Hundred & Twenty five 
Million United States Dollars) only. 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 youare interested to do this business with me.There is no 
risk in this business.

The informations will be as follows

Bank Name:
Bank Address:
A/C Name:
A/C Number:
Swift Code:
Your Telephone:

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 

We will start the first transfer with Twenty five million [$25,000.000] Upon 
successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall 
re-apply for the payment of the remaining balance of $100 Million to your 
account. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not 
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 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. At the conclussion of the transfer you 
will take 35%,5% will be for any expenses both parties incurred in the 
process of this business and the remaining 60% 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.

Contact me urgently via  email for further details.

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

Yours Faithfully,

Mr.John Paul
