FROM CRAMS ADAMS 16 LINE STREET SANTON, JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA +27-835-226-388. ATTEN: Sir/Ceo,I am the manager of bills and Exchange at the foreign Remittance Departmentof the First National Bank of South Africa Ltd. I am writing the following impressive informationabout you through the South African Exchange. In my department,we discovered and abandoned the sum of US$26.8 Million in a non-resident account thatbelongs to one foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a ghastly plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next Kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines,but unfortunately, no body has ever come for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other Officials in the department decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the next of Kin or relative of the deceased for safety and subsequently disbursement account as an unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guidelines here in South Africa stipulate that ifsuch money remained unclaimed after five years, it will be transferred into the State/Government accounts as unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner as the next of Kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that a South African cannot stand as next kin to a foreigner. Meanwhile, we agree that 25% of this money will be for your assistance as a percentages as indicated. Therefore, to enable us apply to the bank as a relative or next of Kin to the deceased indicating your companys name and bank account and the location wherein this money will be remitted upon receipt of your reply.
Contact me immediately through the above phone number or this Email firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your direct confidential TEL/FAX number for effective communication required. This will work out as soon as you reply.Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully. MR.Crams Adams(for the board) _________________________________________________________________Get the ultimate real-time chat experience - Windows Live Messenger! http://messenger.live.com
