Mr.Desmond Nyati, External Auditor attached to a Bank in South-Africa Please Reply to: email@example.com Compliments,with genuine,sincere Intentions I seek to make contact with you and acquaint myself with you for mutual benefit towards overcoming a Dilemma regarding cetain funds left behind in an Investment Account by a Deceased client of a Bank here in South-Africa. I Have Contacted you for the Following Reasons;  I Cannot Invest this Money on my Own Overseas without assistance of a foreigner  As An Official I cannot enter claims of this money in my name as it must be releeased to a Foreign partner/Foreign Beneficiary. The Amount is claimable with submission of Application Claims.Forms.  The Committee responsible for giving Approval have a mandate to releease Dormant Funds.  Please if not interested,delete this message in order to safeguard this money,this is why I have not given the Bank Name,or name of the deceased Owner. FACTS OF THIS PROPOSAL The sum of Money involved in this Dormant Account is £5,218,140.25 (FIVE MILLION TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY BRITISH)/ US$10,227,555.00 (TEN MILLION TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FIVE UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY). I have been opportuned to be working as an external Auditor when I came across this Account with a substantial Deposit in foreign currency which has not been claimed since for some years. I sent out notices for Claims of this money and the Embasssy informed me that the Owner,a Foreigner passed away during the Zimbabwean Crisis and was a Farmer who was assasinated when his farm was taken over,this man had no family and left no Beneficiary information. This Money if it is not claimed will be turned over to the Treasury if someone does not claim it hence my decision to contact you for your Interest so I can present you as the Business partner to this deceased owner. It is required that an Application for claims be entered and approval given within 10 days so this money can be transferred to your overseas Account,there is no risk involved because I will lay the necessary groundwork and you will provide the Overseas Account to receive this money upon Approval. If this money is not claimed within the next 2 months,it will be taken to the Treasury and both of us can work together to avoid this,because your Country has good investment climate,this money can be invested in your country than allowing corrupt Government officials to have access to it. I will inform you of your percentage after I receive a Favourable and positive feedback from you.Please contact me by Email only for now with the following details;  Your Names  Telephone and Fax numbers, I will get in touch with you afterwards,this proposal is for Mutual Financial Benefit and not to mis-lead you.
