{(RE: TRANSFER OF ($172,654,000.00 USD}

Dear Sir/Madam!!

sincerely ask for forgiveness for I know this may seem like a complete 
intrusion to your privacy but right about now this is my option of 
communication. This mail might come to you as a surprise and the 
temptation to ignore it as unserious could come into your mind; but 
please consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of 

I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional 
approach to starting a relationship. I am  Mr. jacob zuma,the personal 
account officer to the great late diseased who has an account in one of 
the top banks here in South Africa. The account was opened in 2001 and 
he died in 2004 without a written or oral WILL and since 2004 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 
and Govt. of South Africa will confiscate the funds for their personal 
use which I personally don't want such incident to happen being that 
this is a great opportunity for me. 

My contact is for you to please 
assist me to transfer the fund ($172,654,000.00 USD) One Hundred & 
Seventy Two Million Six Hundred And Fifty Four Thousand United State 
Dollars from a Cooperate Bank here in South Africa to an 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 because this business is my life. 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 & Ministries here proved to me as 
well that he was single as at the time of his entry into the Republic 
of South Africa. The amount in this account is USD ($172,654,000.00 
USD) One Hundred & Seventy Two Million Six Hundred And Fifty Four 
Thousand United State 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 to you immediately, if you are interested to do this 
business with me. There is no risk 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 Fifty million 
[$50,000.000]. Upon successful transfer without any disappointment from 
your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining balance 
of $122,654,000.00 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 for you. So you should 
provide me with your correct account details where you will like the 
fund to be transferred to, 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 45%, 6% will be for any expenses both parties incurred in 
the process of this business and the remaining 49% will be 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 
the processing of the transfer of the fund to your account without 
further delay. If you are interested, please forward the following 
information as below: 

{1} Your Name/company's name and full address, 
{2} Bank Name:............ 
{3} Bank Address...
{4} Account 
{5} Swift Code...{if any}
{6} Account Holder's Name:

Upon the receipt 
of the above details, payment will be activated by the feeding of your 
data into payment system, followed by a signal that will be sent to the 
paying bank to remit funds into your nominated bank account within 5 
official working days of receipt of the above information. Contact me
