                            URGENT & CONFIDENTIAL PROPOSAL!!

I hope this may not constitute sort of embarrassment to you.First I must solicit
your confidence in this transaction,This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential 
and top secret. But I am assuring you that all will be
well at the end of the day. I have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this
transaction, as I wish to rely on your discreteness and ability in transaction of
this nature. Let me start by introduce my self properly to you, My name is Mr.Joseph
Jolobe, I work as the Regional Manager of ABSA Bank Limited, Johannesburg, South
Africa.There was a Non Resident Account opened in my Branch and for the past 6
years, this account was dormant without operation and at the same time nobody has come to claim
the account with its closing balance of US$26million.

This has made be to trace the source and origin of the funds and the beneficiary
starting since the year 2005 and today I have gathered every
report confirming that the Beneficiary was a Top Government Official in his country
and now have passed away six years ago leaving no legal inheritance instructions on
the account. The families have no idea that such funds exist because the account was
opened with a different name in order to maintain the privacy of the account in
question.On this note, this account will be converted into the bank treasury by the
end of the year if no one has come for the claiming of the funds.Therefore,I write
to you to know if you will endorse this offer so that I will present you as the Next
of Kin to claim the funds while official documents will be prepared to support our
claims. This is a straight forward deal without any risk attached.Our sharing ratio
will be 60:40 should incase if you are interested.Please forward me your personal
data,including your telephone numbers for discussion of this offer in further
details in my personal email (

Yours sincerely,

Mr.Joseph Jolobe.
