Dear Friend, Greetings and complement of the season.I am Mr. Rafael Zumala Auditor General of one of the prime banks here in South Africa, This letter might surprise you because we have not met neither in person nor by correspondence,but please you should exercise some patience and read through my message. I have a very urgent and confidential business proposal for you. We want to transfer to overseas account ($126,000.000.00 USD) One hundred and twenty six million United States Dollars) from a Prime Bank in Africa,from our bank. I have the courage to look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important Business,believing that you will never let me down either now or in future. HOW THE MONEY CAME ABOUT: There is an account opened in the bank in 1996 and since 2000 nobody has operated on this account again,after going through some old files in the records I discovered that if I do not remitte this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr Laurie T Pierre, he is a foreigner and an industrialist,he died since 1999,and since then no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it. secondly he did not clearify his next of kin in his deposition form when he deposited this fund in our bank. The account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that his company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is ($126,000.000.00 USD). Finally,at the conclusion of this business,you will be given 25% of the total ammount,70% will be for me , while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incured during the process of this transaction. I look forward to your earliest reply at my private:email@example.com Please you should include your phone and fax number for easly communications. You can call me with my phone number TEL: 27 766 410090 . Rafael Zumala.
