STRICKLY CONFIDENTIAL Mr. Mubul Nkhosi Telephone: + 27 732 755 494 Fax: + 27 112 197 218 Email: email@example.com ABSA Bank, South Africa. RE: MUTUAL BUSINESS PREPOSITION I am Mubul Nkhosi a personal Banker to late Mr.Morris Thompson an American who lost his life in a plane crash involving Alaska Airline's Flight 261 which crashed on January 31st.2000, including his wife and only daughter. Mr Morris Thompson aged 61 hailed from Fairbanks, Alaska in United States of America. He was one of the state's most prominent native and business leaders. All these you are very free to verify from the web link below for more information and clarification about his socio-economic status until his death. http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list Before the demise of my client, he had the sum of US$22.5Million(Twenty-Two Million, United State Dollars) being payment for the contract he executed with the South Mining and Gas Co-operation including land sales and procurements. I was at the last burial rights on February 5th, 2000 to pay my final respect to Late Mr. Morris Thompson. There I made thorough inquiries about his Next of kin but, discovered no one really knows about this fund currently sited with ABSA Bank of South Africa, Since then, His Attorney and I have made unsuccessive attempts to get his next of kin, relative or close friend to come forth and claim this fund but to no avail. And as personal banker, I cannot in any way claim it unless someone overseas does, so. I must not hesitate to inform you that just a forth night ago, a routine notification was sent to late Mr. Thompson's Attorney to provide a next of kin within the next few weeks and they will have it confiscated and forwarded to the nation's treasury account as an unclaimed fund. This is the agreement they have reached at the bank and they also reiterated that this is according to their banking guidelines. MY PROPOSAL: Owing to the fact that his only daughter who was the next of kin and the wife whom should have claimed this fund also perished in that fatal air crash, I want to place you as the next of kin to late Mr. Morris Thompson as the closest family confidants. Be informed that upon successful transfer of this money into your bank account, you shall have 35% of it as your share, while 65% for me and 5% will be set outside for any expenses incurred during the course of the transaction. I must also remind you that honesty and trust, transparency must be our watchword. Please include the following in your reply: (1.) Your Name and Address in full. (2.) A Private phone, Mobile and Fax number (3.) Occupation/Company Name and Address I look forward to receiving your reply soon and please note that this transaction is confidential and 100% risk free. Yours faithfully Mubul Nkhosi
