Attn, 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 future. 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 co- 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 to[ email@example.com ] Regards, Mr.Frank Smith
