We want to transfer to overseas (US$168,559,000. 00 ) One 
hundred and sixty eight million five hundred and fifty nine thousand U.
S dollars only) from a Firstrand Bank Ltd South Africa, I am asking you 
to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who is capable and fit 
to provide an existing bank account immediately to receive this money, 
as long as you will remain honest to me till the end of this business, 
believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in 

I am Mr. Frank Smith, the CEO Public Sector of Firstrand Bank 
Ltd South Africa, during the course of our auditing I discovered a 
floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1995 and since 2002 
nobody has operated on this account again, and after going through some 
old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account 
died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit 
this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of 
this account is Mr. WALTER G. OPPLIGER, a foreigner, and an 
industrialist, and he died, since 2000. And no other person knows about 
this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no beneficiary 
and my investigation proved to me as well that MR WALTER G. OPPLIGER 
until his death was the CEO of DIAMOND OPPLIGER [pty]. S.A.  Your full 
operation is highly needed. Because the management is ready to 
approve this money (US$168,559,000. 00) to any foreigner who has 
correct information of this account.

I will use my position and 
influence to obtain all legal approvals. You will be given 25% of the 
total money, 75% will be for us and 5% will be for expenses both 
parties might incurred during the process of transferring.Please reply
