Attn: Sir/ Madam,

I am the personal account officer to the great late INDUSTRIALIST who had an account in one of the top banks here in South Africa.

Forgive my contact because this letter comes to you as a surprise, as you don't know of it's coming before. My contact is for you to please assist to transfer US$125,000.000.00 ( One hundred & twenty- five million United States dollars only) in tranches from a Prime Bank here in South Africa to any oversea's account(s). The account was opened in 1998 and he died in 2003 without a written or oral WILL and since 2003 nobody had operated the account. The account is dormant and the funds floating. If I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited to the bank.

Firstly, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction because of my official position and nature of the deal. The business can be concluded in 10 (ten) banking days .I am sure and have confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude. The account holder was a foreigner and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the accountant of the company. My investigation through the National immigration department proved to me as well that he was single as at the time of his entry into the Republic of South Africa.

The credit balance in this account is USD$125 Million ( One Hundred & Twenty five Million United States Dollars only). Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary because the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner who has correct information on this account which I will disclose to you if you are interested to do this business with me.There is no risk in this business if you follow my instructions. Given my position and my personal rapport with the manager of the bank, the funds can be transferred to any account(s) you nominate .I need an assurance from you that this money will be intact pending my arrival to your bank for disbursements.

State the A/C Details.
A/c No:............
Bank Name:........
A/c Holder:........
Beneficiary Name:...

We will start with the first swift wire-transfer of US$25 million( Twenty -five million United States only) Upon successful transfer of the first tranch without any disappointment from your side, you shall apply for the outstanding sum of US $100 Million to the same or other account(s). Armed with correct information as a foreigner and appropriate documentations as we shall arrange I will use my position to secure a prompt conclusion to the transaction.

Your duty is to send me the banking coordinates for the transfer while maintaining the required confidentiality . At the conclusion of the transfer you will receive 35%, 5% will be for any expenses both parties incurred in the process of this business and 60% of the funds will be for me.

Upon your strong assurance of your full cooperations and receipt of your account details then I will start the process of the funds transfer to your account without further delay. Contact Me immediately for futher details.

Thanks for your anticipated cooperations.
Yours Faithfully,
Mr.Stephen Ajken.
