Attn: [RE: TRANSFER OF $113,000,000.00] I want to transfer ($113,000.000.00 USD) One Hundred and Thirteen Million United States Dollars from a Prime Bank here in South Africa to oversea account.First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude. I solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the said amount into your safe account for onward investment. You can either provide us with an existing 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 of this important business trusting in you and believing that you will never let me down either now or in future. My name is MR.ROBERT CASE, I am was the personal account officer to a great late INDUSTRIALIST who has an account in one of the top banks here in South Africa. The account was opened in 2000 and he died in 2003 without a written or oral WILL and since 2003 nobody has operated on this account again hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than three years without claim hence the money will be re-called to the government treasury as unclaimed after this long period of dormancy. The owner of this account is a foreigner and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the manager of the company. My investigation through the National immigration department proved to me as well that he was single as at the point of his entry into the Republic of South Africa. The total amount in this account is USD$113 Million (One Hundred and Thirteen Million United States Dollars Only). As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer this fund abroad for investment. Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary because the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner who has correct information to this account which I will give you immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me. There is no risk involved in this business.With my position and my personal contact with the manager of the bank, the money can be transferred to any account you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. We will start the first transfer with Thirteen Million [$13,000.000]. Upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining balance of $100 Million to your account. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local person here, but can only be approved to any foreigner who has the correct information of the account, which I will provide to you. So you should provide me with your correct account detail where you will like the fund to be transferred or you can set up a new account for the transfer even an empty account is ok. At the conclusion of the transfer you will take 35% for you, 5% for any expenses incurred in this business and the remaining 60% for me. As soon as I hear from you and upon your strong assurance that you will not let me down once the fund goes into your account I will then start to process the transfer of the fund to your account without further delay. Contact me urgently for further detail email@example.com Thanks. Yours Faithfully, Mr. Robert Case.
