DEAR,
 
 
I WAS CONVINCED TO WRITE TO YOU AFTER RECEIVING INFORMATION ABOUT THE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN 
YOUR COUNTRY FROM YOUR COUNTRY'S EMBASSY IN PRETORIA SOUTH AFRICA. 
 
MY NAME IS MR LAWSON MNANDI, A SENIOR AUDITOR WITH THE AMALGAMATED BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (ABSA). I 
AM PRESENTLY WORKING AT THE ABSA BRANCH IN MIDRAND DURING THE QUARTERLY AUDITING OF THE BANKS 
ACCOUNT LAST YEAR, 
I DISCOVERED THAT THERE IS A DORMANT ACCOUNT THAT HAS NOT BEEN OPERATED  FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS, 
ON FURTHER INVESTIGATION I DISCOVERED THAT THE ACCOUNT BELONGS TO A FOREIGNER MR JOHN WILLIAMS, THE 
FORMER OWNER OF SAFARI FARMS LTD MIDRAND, MR WILLIAMS AND HIS  FAMILY WAS KILLED BY ARMED ROBBERS 
IN HIS FARM HOUSE ON THE  5TH OF APRIL 1998 HENCE NOBODY HAVE OPERATED THE ACCOUNT SINCE THEIR 
DEATH. 
IN 2003, THE BANK OBTAINED AN ORDER OF MANDAMUS TO LOCATE THE DISTANT RELATION OF THE FAMILY TO 
RELEASE THE MONEY TO THEM, SINCE THAT TIME NOBODY HAVE COME TO CLAIM THE MONEY. 
THE TOTAL AMOUNT IN THE ACCOUNT IS US$24.8M(TWENTY FOUR MILLION, EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED
