FROM THE DESK JACOB ALEXANDER (ESQ) TEL:27-78-229-4871 ADDRESS:NO 20 BOTHA CRESENT SANDTON JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA HELLO, GOOD DAY. RE:MUTUAL BENEFIT BUSINESS PROPOSAL I am writing this email in regards to the tsunami disaster, which has claimed so many lives including the live of my Client MR. MUHAMMED SADIK I am MR.JACOB ALEXANDER and my client is the chairman of a company here in South Africa that deals with Gold Mining and Exportation. The last time I heard from him was on the 19th of December 2004, when he confirmed to me that he has arrived Thailand with his family safely and hope to return back to South Africa before 5th of January 2005. From all verifications and records from the embassy it shows that my client is among those that have been dead with his family. The bank where his assets are deposited worth Valued at US$10,500, 000.00 (Ten Million Five Hundred United States Dollars) has issued me a notice as his legal adviser to provide the next of kin. I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for this notification. I have made several inquiries to their embassy to locate any of my clients extended Relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful and I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$10,500, 000.00 (Ten Million Five Hundred United States Dollars) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money 45% to me and 35% to you and 20% will be sent to their country for charity to support the lives of dying people over there. Note that I personally will notarize all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Yours Sincerely JACOB ALEXANDER(ESQ)
