(RE: TRANSFER OF ($ 178,000.000.00 USD}

Dear Sir,

We want to transfer to overseas 
($178,000.000.00 USD) One hundred and seventy eight million United 
States Dollars) from a Bank in Africa, I want to ask you to quietly 
look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to 
provide either an existing bank 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 for this important business trusting in you and believing in God 
that you will never let me down either now or in future.

i am Dr .k. 
martin , a consulting aditor of prime banks here is South Africa, i 
have the courage to crave indulgence for this imortant business 
believing that you will never let me down either now or in the future.
Some years ago, an American mining consultant/contractor with the South 
African Mining corporation, made a numbered time (Fixed) dopsit for 
twelve calender mouths valued $I78m United american dollars(ONE HUNDRED 
AND SEVENTY EIGHT MILLION US DOLLARS) in an account.On maturity, the 
bank sent a routine notification to his forwarding addrss but got no 

After a month, the bank sent another reminder and finally his 
contract employers,But the south African mining corporation wrote to 
infore the bank that he died without MAKING A WILL and all attempts by 
the American Embssy to trace his next of KIN was fruitless.

therefore , made further investigation and discovered that the 
beneficiary was an immigrant from Jamaica and only recently obtained 
American Citizenship. He did not declear any KIN or relation in all his 
official documents, including his Bank desposit paper work.this money 
DOLLARS ) is still sitting in my bank as dormant.

No one has ever come 
forward to claim it , and according to South African banking policy, 
after some years ,the money will revert to the ownership of the South 
African Government if the account owner is certified dead. This is the 
Situation ,and my proposal is that i am looking for a Foreigner who 
will stand in as the next of KIN to beneficiary, and OPEN A BANK 
ACCOUNT abroad to facilitate the transfer of this money.

this is 
Simple, all you have to do, to open an account any where in the world 
and send me its details for transfer. The money will then be paid into 
this account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me , 35% for you 
and 5% for expenses that might comeup during transfer process. 
is no risk at all , and all the paper work for this transaction will be 
done by me using my position and connections in the banks in South 

This business transaction is guaranteed And the first phase of 
the transfer will be ($78m USD)SEVENTY EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS as advised 
by our insider in the bank.if you are interested, please reply me 
immediatly through the above email-address. 

Please observe the 
utmostconfidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be 
most profitable for both of us because i shall require your assistance 
to invest some of my share in your country.

I Look forward to your 
ealiest reply. 

Yours Sincerely,
