Dear Sir/Madam,
With due respect, I introduce myself to you for a better relationship. I Mr James Zulu  AUDITOR of FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA(F.N.B). Your contact is courtesy of Business online network via Internet as I decided to contact you for this beneficial transaction that is 100% risk free.
During auditing, verifications/investigations in our bank at the end of last fiscal (financial) year, I discovered the sum of (US$30M} THIRTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS in a dormant account belonging to MR ANDREA SMITH ,a German  international businessman who died along with his family in the November 5th,2003 plane crash in
Abidjan west Africa. Our investigations revealed no survivor or NEXT OF KIN/RELATIONS for claims as we have long been expecting someone to forward applications for claims as it applies to banking REGULATIONS hence this proposal for your perusals.

However, I kept this information (SECRET) confidential within my jurisdiction to enable us submit claims and transfer this fund through a  trustworthy person whom we shall present to our bank as the BONAFIDE “NEXT OF KINâ€? to the deceased.
We intend to credit this fund into any of your nominated (designated) offshore bank account for investments.Meanwhile, all domestic arrangements for claims has been put in place awaiting your acceptance to participate. I will give you directives and what to do as soon as I receive your positive response.
Kindly understand that we could not carry out this on our own based on the simple fact that we are civil servants and legally excluded from operating foreign account and too, it will raise eyebrows on our side in terms of transfer being staff of the bank. Moreover, this fund belongs to a foreigner and demands same as next of kin to claim it. Hence your contact for   successful operation. My colleagues and I has resolved to offer you 20% of the total sum as commission, We will invest 75% of our share in your country provided it is profit oriented. 5% of the total fund will be set aside to re-emburse all expenses that will be incurred in the course of  running this transaction such as telephone and other minor expenses. I am assuring  you of a smooth and successful transaction provided you display maturity and observe confidentiality.
And it will interest you to know that the Reserve Bank(Apex) will approve credit of this fund into your account as contract payment or as an inheritance to abstain you from all queries regarding the source (origin) of this fund and will provide you the(beneficiary) with contractual (data) details to certify your bank or  government if the need arises. Therefore, be kind to clarify the following for my consideration:
1. Can your account accommodate this fund in your local bank  or do you have an account outside your country where you may consider safe for this fund ?.
2. What are the tax obligations in your country as I desire a low/free tax zone?.
3. What are the interest rates on long/short term fixed deposit in your local banks?.
4. What other lucrative investments would you suggest as I intend banking, real estate and hotels if they are good business venture in your Country?.
5. Can you be able to make residential documents and purchase a house for me and my family to relocate and settle in your country after the transaction?

Kindly indicate your private telephone and fax numbers for more effeicient communication.
Looking forward to your anticipated urgent response.
Best regards,
Mr James Zulu
