I am the Computing Auditor of a prime bank in South Africa.I
have a very urgent and confidential business proposition for
you.In 1985, A Miner  made a time deposit in a bank Which I
am presently the Computing Auditor.
He did not declare any next of kin in his application paper.
The money is very  big and no one knows the source of this
money because apparently the time frame of his employment
with the  company here in Africa does indeed preclude such a
large amount of money.It can be assumed that he brought his
money over from his country or previous place of work but
that is open to peculation.However,the point is that he is
dead and his employers are not aware Of this money,and
therefore it can be safely assumed that no one will ever
come forward to claim this money,he died in 1992.
The total sum (inclusive of accrued interests) is
$34,000,000.00USD still sitting in my Bank in the Dormant
Account Portfolio. No one will ever come forward to claim it
now or in the future and  according to our banking
laws,after 15 years,the money will automatically reverted to
the Federal Government Treasury if the Account owner is a
foreigner and is certified dead but with you a foreigner
applying for the transfer of this fund to your nominated
account anywhere in the world and all documents backing the
transfer legally secured and there is certification that the
funds being transferred are from non-criminal sources we
will have no problems.
In short this will be a proper and legal money  transfer and
there will be no related risk! We will have to process the
initial paperwork to obtain approval from the Probate
Registry (Ministry of Justice) and obtain the Letter of
Administration empowering you as Sole trustee/executor to
the deceased Estate after which I will use my position and
influence in the bank to effect onward transfer of this
money from our bank to your nominated account. If you
therefore agree to be the official Beneficiary,then please
note that you will be required to avail me with a bank
account (a bank account with zero Credit Balance is ok).Your
full address, phone and fax,full name and brief background
information on you (CV).As soon as I receive a positive
response on your willingness to assist me then I will
initiate the processing of the transfer and in about 7
working days the money will be in your nominated bank
account for us To share in the ratio of 50% for me and 50%
for you. 
This transaction is guaranteed to succeed without any
problems. If you agree to assist me by sending me the above
requested Information, I will give you my complete address,
including phone/ fax etc and any further clarifications you
may require.
God Bless You.
