DEAR FRIEND,
I AM DR, JAN DE VOS THE DIRECTOR IN CHARGE OF AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING SECTION OF AFRICAN MERCHANT 
BANK SOUTH AFRICA WITH DUE RESPECT AND REGARD. I HAVE DECIDED TO CONTACT YOU ON A BUSINESS 
TRANSACTION THAT WILL BE BENEFICIAL TO BOTH OF US AT THE END OF THE TRANSACTION.

DURING OUR INVESTIGATION AND AUDITING IN THIS BANK, MY DEPARTMENT CAME ACROSS A VERY HUGE SUM OF 
MONEY BELONGING TO A DECEASED PERSON WHO DIED ON 23rd OCTOBER 1999 IN A PLANE CRASH AND THE FUND 
HAS BEEN DORMANT IN HIS ACCOUNT WITH THIS BANK WITHOUT ANY CLAIM OF THE FUND IN OUR CUSTODY EITHER 
FROM HIS FAMILY OR RELATION BEFORE OUR DISCOVERY TO THIS DEVELOPMENT.

ALTHOUGH PERSONALLY, I KEEP THIS INFORMATION SECRET WITHIN MYSELF TO ENABLE THE WHOLE PLANS AND 
IDEA BE PROFITABLE AND SUCCESSFUL DURING THE TIME OF EXECUTION. THE SAID AMOUNT WAS US$20.MILLON 
(TWENTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS). MEANWHILE ALL THE WHOLE ARRANGEMENT TO PUT CLAIM OVER THIS 
FUND AS THE BONA FIDE NEXT OF KIN TO THE DECEASED, GET THE REQUIRED APPROVAL AND TRANSFER THIS 
MONEY TO A FOREIGN ACCOUNT HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE AND DIRECTIVES AND NEEDED INFORMATION WILL BE 
RELAYED TO YOU AS SOON AS YOU INDICATE YOUR INTEREST AND WILLINGNESS TO ASSIST ME AND ALSO BENEFIT 
YOUR SELF TO THIS GREAT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. IN FACT I COULD HAVE DONE THIS DEAL ALONE BUT BECAUSE 
OF MY POSITION IN THIS COUNTRY AS A CIVIL SERVANT IN THIS VERY BANK, WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO OPERATE 
A FOREIGN ACCOUNT WOULD EVENTUALLY RAISE AN EYE BROW ON MY SIDE DURING THE TIME OF TRANSFER BECAUSE 
I WORK IN THIS BANK.

THIS IS THE ACTUAL REASON WHY IT WILL REQUIRE A SECOND PARTY OR FELLOW WHO WILL FILE CLAIMS AS THE 
NEXT OF KIN TO THE BANK AND ALSO PRESENT A FOREIGN ACCOUNT WHERE HE WILL NEED THE MONEY TO BE 
RE-TRANSFERRED INTO ON HIS REQUEST AS IT MAY BE AFTER DUE VERIFICATION AND CLARIFICATION BY THE 
CORRESPONDENT BRANCH OF THE BANK WHERE THE WHOLE MONEY WILL BE REMITTED FROM TO YOUR OWN 
DESIGNATION BANK ACCOUNT.

MAY I AT THIS POINT EMPHASIZE THAT THIS TRANSACTION IS 100% RISK FREE AS I HAVE MADE ARRANGEMENTS 
FOR A SUCCESSFUL DEAL BEFORE CONTACTING YOU.
ON SMOOTH CONCLUSION OF THIS TRANSACTION, YOU WILL BE ENTITLED TO 40% OF THE TOTAL SUM AS 
GRATIFICATION, WHILE 5% WILL BE SET ASIDE TO TAKE CARE OF EXPENSES THAT MAY ARISE DURING THE TIME 
OF TRANSFER AND ALSO TELEPHONE BILLS, WHILE 55% WILL BE FOR ME.

PLEASE, YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO KEEP TOP SECRET AS I AM STILL IN SERVICE AND INTEND TO RETIRE FROM 
SERVICE AFTER I CONCLUDE THIS DEAL WITH YOU.I WILL BE MONITORING THE WHOLE SITUATION HERE IN THIS 
BANK UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE MONEY IN YOUR ACCOUNT AND ASK I TO COME DOWN TO YOUR COUNTRY FOR 
SUBSEQUENT SHARING OF THE FUND ACCORDING TO PERCENTAGES PREVIOUSLY INDICATED AND FURTHER 
INVESTMENT, EITHER IN YOUR COUNTRY OR ANY COUNTRY YOU ADVICE ME TO INVEST IN. I SUGGEST YOU GET 
BACK TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ON MY EMAIL, (janvxx3@netscape.net).

YOURS FAITHFULLY,
DR, JAN DE VOS
