FROM: DENNIS NAIDOO E-MAIL: email@example.com HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL. ==================== Dear Sir/Madam, Please accept my apology if this letter comes to you as a surprise since I believe that we don?t know each other before now, but for the purpose of introduction, my name is Dennis Naidoo, the Auditor of AMALGAMATED BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (ABSA). There is an account opened in this bank in 1980, but since the death of the account owner, no surviving beneficiary has come forth to claim this fund. After going through some old files within the bank for the second quarters of the year, I discovered that if this money is not remitted out of this country immediately, it will be forfeited for nothing or better described as ?retired account by Board of Directors of the bank who actually will use this money in enriching a few already over-rich bank owners. On further investigation, I discovered that even the company (Kruger Gold Co) where the late account owner who was a foreigner worked as a miner/geologist have no knowledge of the existence of this account or about the fund involved (US$26,M) TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS. As the money is in US Dollars account and can only be approved to a foreigner with some required information as the next of kin, I am contacting you to establish a relationship and possible transfer of this money into your nominated account outside South Africa. Also, everything concerning the payment and transfer of this money would be done legally with all the necessary paper work processed and submitted to the bank to enable the payment into your nominated bank account. It is very essential that I have your full cooperation/undivided commitment to make this noble transaction be successful as the management of the bank is prepared to approve the remittance of this money to any foreigner who comes forth as the beneficiary. In order to assist me realize this golden opportunity, 25% of the total sum will be earmarked as your share while 10% shall be set aside for any incidental expenses which may occur in the eventual payment and transfer of this money. Please indicate your willingness to assist me with this transaction by sendind an email to the address as stated above. Due to my sensitive position within the bank, let us keep this transaction in top confidence and be assured that this business is a 100% risk free. Expecting to hear from you soonest. Best Regards, Dennis Naidoo
