              BUSSINESS OFFER

In my quest for a reliable and trusted partner for a highly important and lucrative venture cum 
investment, I came across your contact as a reliable partner for this venture. 
I am Mr.Mayo Kennedy, one of the senior Accountants of AMALGAMATED BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (ABSA). To 
highlight you on this proposal, there is an account opened in this bank since 1980 till 1990 after 
which, nobody has operated on this account again till date. 
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 for nothing. 
The owner of this account is Mr. Ben Andreas, a foreigner, and a miner at Kruger gold co., a 
geologist by profession who died since 1990. No other person knows about this account or anything 
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation further proved to me that 
his company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved as he made it his 
personal account. 
The money outstanding before his death was (USD 26 Million) Twenty Six Million United States 

I am now contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a national with a 
local bank account here, But can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in US 
dollars and the former owner, a foreigner. I implore you to act as foreigner and beneficiary to the 
fund as I will then intimate you on the processes abound as well as procure all the necessary 
documents required to lay claim to the money, If you are capable and willing to handle such amount 
in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit I 
shall highly appreciate. 
I need trusted person in this business because I do not want to make mistakes; I need your strong 
assurance and trust, With my position now in the office I can effect transfer of this money to any 
foreigner's reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact 
pending my arrival in your country for disbursement. On the alternative, you can come down here to 
South Africa for us to meet one to one, to enable us sign a binding agreement. 
As soon as you receive this money into a foreign account or any account of your choice where the 
fund will be safe. I will proceed to your country for onward percentage distributions and 
investment. I need your full co-operation to make this work because the management is ready to 
approve this payment to any foreigner, who has correct information of this account, which I will 
give to you immediately you show's your interested. 
I will use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to 
your account with appropriate clearance forms of the ministries and foreign exchange departments. 
At the conclusion of this business, for your assistance, 25% of the total amount will be accrue for 
you, 70% for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process 
of the transfer. 
I implore you to maintain the absolute confidentiality of this transaction. 
Your earliest response is urgently awaited. 

Mr.Mayo Kennedy
