   I am Dr .GHANDOLFSMITH, a Deputy Chief Executive of Amalgamated Bank of
South Africa (ABSA PRIVATE BANK) ,this BANK is also a correspondant of London international 
branch,HSBC Bank,Plc.Level 26, 8 Canada Square LONDON. I am writing following an opportunity in my 
office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.Presently I am working in London and you can 
reach me with this number 0044 7031947996.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of 9.2 Million British Pounds Sterling (Nine 
Million Two Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign 
customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash 
of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only 
daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site indicated below for more 
       Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless 
somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking 
guidelines / regulations. Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only
daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund 
behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this 
department now decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or 
beneficiary of the funds for safe keeping and investment. Since nobody is coming for these funds 
and we don't want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law 
and guidelines in South Africa stipulates that such money after five years will be transferred into 
banking treasury as unclaimed funds.
 We agreed that 30% of this money will be for you if you assist us in claiming this fund, while the 
balance will be for my colleagues and I. Note that this transaction is confidential and risk free. 
As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me through my e-mail address at 
( and for further details. Please note that all 
necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you as has been finalised and this 
fund is not linked to scam and its alikes.
      Upon the receipt of your response to assist I will be able to put you in a clearer picture of 
what next to do.Do bear in mind if this transaction does not interest, please discard this e-mail 
and do not use it against me as what I am doing will risk me of my job I have laboured for yearsif 
 I crave your indulgence to make this a top most secret .
Best Regards,
