Dear Friend,


I am Mr.Zango Thomas a director in the Department of Agricultural
Resources gauteng province Republic of South Africa.Forgive my indignation
if this message comes to you as a surprise. I am
contacting you concerning a deal which i have on ground and i require your
support and trust to execute it perfectly.During our auditing in this
department,I came across some amount of money belonging to a deceased
foreign contractor in this department: Mr.Sheu Yuan-dong who died with
his wife and their only daughter on February 16,1998 in a plane crash. His
file has been dormant in this department without any claim of the fund in
our custody from his relation before my discovery to this development.The
STATES DOLLARS).Please View the website below:

The fact that you are not a taiwanese will not pose any problem for the
successful transfer of this fund into your account.All arrangementS to
claim this fund as the Bonafide next of kin to the deceased has been put
in place and directives will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate
your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit your self from
this great business
opportunity.Here in the Republic of South Africa as a civil servant,I am
not allowed to operate a foreign account. This is the actual reason why it
will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next
of kin to this department.The law stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after Nine years, the money will be transferred into the state
as unclaimed funds.The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this
business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner.

As a native of south Africa i cannot stand as next of kin. I dont want
this money to go into the state treasury as unclaimed Bill.Be assured,this
transaction is 100% risk free. In conclusion of this transaction,you will
be entitled to 40% of the total sum as gratification,while 50% will be for
and 10% will be set aside for expences in the course of this
transaction.Please ensure to keep this a "top secret" as I am still in
service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with
you. I will fly down to your country for the sharing of the funds
to percentages indicated above and further investments will be discussed.

Please keep this proposal a top secret, even if you dont want to be a part
of this deal.I look forward to receiving your urgent reply to  notify
me of your decision.

Yours faithfully,
Mr.Zango Thomas
