From: Mr. Paul Baloyi. JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA. Email: email@example.com Websites:http://www.dbsa.org Dear Friend, Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Paul Baloyi An Executive Director of my bank, DEVELOPMENT BANK OF SOUTHERN AFRICA (DBSA).I have an obscured business suggestion for you. One of our accounts with a holding balance of Money Valued $22,000,000.00 (Twenty-Two Million Dollars) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past six years.
site:http://news.bbc.co. uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm and since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of the account nor the funds. Also Information from the National Immigration stated that he was also single on entry into South Africa. I have secretly discussed this matter with some of the bank officials and we agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with.This transaction is totally risk and trouble free as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drugs, money laundering, terrorism or any other illegal act. The sharing of the fund between us, is as follows; 40% of the total sum will go to you for your effort and commitment to the success of this transaction. 60% for me and my colleague's. Forward your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org Best Regards, Mr Paul Baloyi YOSHIKAWA
