From: Mr. Barry Mapule. TEL: +27 83-368-3978 EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org In order to transfer out (US$15 Million) Fifteen Million United States Dollars from First National Bank (FNB). I have picked up the trust and courage to write you this letter with divine confidence that you are a reliable and honest Person who will be capable for this important business transaction believing also that you will never let me down either now or in the future. My name is Mr. Barry Mapule a senior Auditing Officer with the FNB in South Africa There is an account opened in this bank in 2007 and since 2010 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited to the government. The owner of this account died since 2010. No other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is (US$15 Million) Fifteen Million United States Dollars. I want to transfer this sum of Fifteen Million United States Dollars into a safe foreign account abroad. I am contacting you based on the fact that you are a foreigner because this money can only be approved for payment to a foreigner, more so it cannot be approved by any local bank here, as this money is in US Dollars hence the former owner of this account is a foreigner too. I know that this proposal will come to you as a surprise as we don't know ourselves before. However I got your contact from a trade consultant here in South Africa though I did not disclose the purpose of my seeking for a foreign business partner to him. I have involved a very senior official in the Operational department and we have agreed that after the transfer of the money into your account, you shall be entitled to 30% of the total sum. We the officials will take 60% while 10% is for expenses. All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure 100% risk free situation on the side of both parties. All things being equal, this transaction will be concluded within 10 working days as soon as we hear from you. Please treat with utmost confidentiality. Contact me as quickly as possible through my private phone number +27 83-368-3978 or email address email@example.com Kind Regards, Mr. Barry Mapule.
