From: Assistant Director International Remittance Department ABSA Bank Limited South Africa. Dear, URGENT BUSINESS DEAL I would like to start by introducing myself as Mr. Johnson Alex, the Assistant Director of the above-mentioned department in the ABSA Bank of South Africa. I have been directed to contact you urgently on a very important confidential deal, which needs immediate attention. The decision to contact you was based on the fact that we trust your capability to receive on our behalf a sum of US$22,000,000.00 (Twenty Two Million Five hundred United States Dollars). This sum in question was a credit balance of a Foreigner, an oil Merchant/Contractor, a Geologist by profession and a Miner at KRUGER GOLD COMPANY LTD who died since AUGUST 6, 1997 in [Korean Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers onboard. And for your perusal you can view this web site: http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list. This credit was held with our banks here in South Africa and the Director of Account/Operations approached us since he cannot transfer this fund alone without going through us (i.e. The International Remittance Department). With our position and experience, we have worked out the modalities in such a way that the transaction will take seven bank working days to accomplish. On the receipt of your approvals, I will be in a very good position to give you details on the agreed sharing ratio. This may come as a surprise to you but as we progress, I will be able to explain to you how I got your contact. Meanwhile, we are 100% positive that you can handle this therefore, contact me on +27- 7816 17110. Or E-mail: email@example.com ,or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you receive this urgent message. I am anticipating your urgent response while thanking you in advance for your understanding and co-operation. Yours sincerely, Mr. Johnson Alex.
