Dear Beneficiary,
My name is Mr Adam Guy. I am the newly appointed  Director South Africa Reserve Bank and the 10th Director of the Bank. I assumed duty as Director for South Africa Reserve Bank on June 4, 2015 at the Bank's Corporate Head Office following the confirmation of my nomination by the Senate of the Federal Republic of South Africa.
However, acting in my capacity as the newly-appointed Director of the Bank, I have been mandated by the Senate National Assembly to check through the statutory disk of every payment pending during the last quarter of the year. Hence, your payment file has been forwarded to my desk for final approval. Therefore, after vetting and verification about the source and origin of your funds, I am convinced 100% that the $5,500,000.00 dollars part payment is a legitimate contract/inheritance claim. Hence, I have granted approval for the release of the $5,500,000.00 dollars in your favor.
For this reason, your payment has been rightfully approved and will be paid out directly into your bank account via "automatic swift transfer" from our Electronic transfer unit. Already, all transfer processing has been concluded in line with the new (SARB)  Payment Policy. But before the $5,500,000.00 dollars can't be credited into your bank account yet, because a "Payment Release Code" must be issued to you personally from the Electronic Transfer Unit, which will enable your funds to be credited into your bank account within 3 working days. Issuance of the "Payment Release Code" is in total compliance with the Principles of the Banking Codes on Money Laundering and it is also in accordance with the new (SARB) Payment Policy. Hence, issuance of the "Payment Release Code" attract a fee of $320 dollars only and the $320 dollars is the ONLY FEE you will be requested to pay for the final release of your funds.
However, on the note of receiving your inheritance funds, you are requested to reply back to this mail with your full name, address, Phone Number and the details of your receiving bank account as well as make arrangement to secure and send the issuance fee of $320 dollars only for the "Payment Release Code".
I am expecting to receive your earliest reply with your details alongside your receiving bank account details, as well as the details of payment for the $320 dollars. for questions and enquiry please call me on +27-061-980-9361
Yours Sincerely,
Foreign Operation Dept Director
P.S: Please note that all other authorities handling your payment has been stopped by the FBI. Hence, the SOUTH AFRICA RESERVE BANK (SARB) has been appointed as the sole authority in-charge of your fund release. Therefore, you are advised to stop further communication with any other office or financial institution handling your payment to ensure a smooth and successful remittance of your payment to you while we look forward to your response as quickly as possible.
