Dear Friend, I am Mr. Jason Kane, I trained and work as an external auditor for Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) South Africa, working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire South Africa region. An investor (name with-held) died without naming a next of kin to his fund in my bank. The amount is $15.5M and banking regulation/legislation in South-Africa demands that i notify the fiscal authorities after three years. The above set of facts underscores my reason to seek your permission to have you stand as the next of kin to the deceased. This funds will be approved and release in your favor as the next of kin if only you will adhere to my instruction and cooperate with me in one accord. I have all the legal and Banking details of my deceased client that will facilitate our putting you forward as the claimant/beneficiary of the funds and ultimately transfer of the $15.5M.Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a Foreigner to stand in as the next of kin of the funds deposited in my bank. I am writing you because I as a public servant, I cannot operate a foreign account. The proceeds of this account valued at 15.5 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money, 50% to me amounting to US$7,750,000.00 dollars and 40% for you amounting to US$6,200.000.00 and 10% amounting to US$1,550,000.00 for miscellaneous expenses that might arise. I would want you to understand that this is a DEAL. Do contact me immediately whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal. But where you are interested, contact me only through my private email address below for more details as time is of the essence in this business.
