Dear Friend,
I can't imagine how you will feel receiving a sudden business letter from a remote country in far 
Africa and probably from someone you are not closely related with. But all the same, I believe we 
do not 
need to be of blood relatives before we can establish cordial/business relationship. Having said 
this, I 
think it is very important at this juncture to introduce myself to you.
I am Mr. Jeffrey Zuma., Head: Enterprise Wide Risk and member of the executive and risk committees 
Rand Merchant Bank, South Africa. I got your information while browsing through internet in search 
of a 
reliable person who will assist me. This is an urgent and very confidential business proposition. 
On June 7, 2000,a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the South African Institute of Mining and 
Metallurgy, Mr. Kurt Kahle made a numbered time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued 
US$10,500,000.00,(Ten Million, five hundred thousand Dollars). Upon maturity, I sent a routine 
notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and 
finally we 
discovered from his Private Business School. employers, that On the 31st of July 2000, our client, 
with his 
37-year-old wife and his son Michael, aged eight died in the Air France concord plane crash bound 
New York in their plan for a world cruise, with other passengers abroad as you can confirm it 
yourself via 
the website below:

On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a "WILL", and all attempts to 
trace his 
next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Mr.Kurt 
Kahle did 
not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit 
in my Bank. This sum of US$10,500,000.00 has carefully been fixed in my bank for safekeeping. No 
will ever come forward to claim it. According to South African Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) 
years, the 
money will revert to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. 
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. 
Kurt Kahle 
so that the fruit of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt Government 
officials. I 
am writing you because I as a public servant, I cannot operate a foreign account. I want to present 
as the owner of the funds so you will be able to claim them with the help of my attorney. I will 
like you to 
provide immediately your full names and address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary 
documents which will put you in place as the beneficiary of the funds. The money will be moved out 
us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you. 
The paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney If you are interested, please reply 
immediately via my email address and upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details 
will help you understand the transaction.Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured 
this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to 
my share in real estate within your country.
Due to the nature of confidentiality in this Transaction our communication can only be via email 
and fax 
Awaiting your urgent reply via email.
Thanks and my regards.

NOTE: If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly delete/destroy this email in view of the 
confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities involved.
