south African 
mining corporation, the said investment, now valued ($18.5 million Dollar) Eighteen million, Five 
hundred 
thousand United State  Dollars only was purchased by (Lucio Harper) and contracted out to the south 
African mining corporation in 1977 now recognized as mines and matured since march last year, 
several 
attempts have been made to contract lucio Harper without success and there is no way to contact any 
of his close relatives in whose favor the investment cash value can be paid.
 
Since we have access to Lucio Harper "information ,we can claim this money with the help of my 
partners with the south African mines and natural resources department, all we have to do is to 
file claim 
using you as lucio  Harper's relative. I will like to assure you that there is absolutely nothing 
to worry about 
because it is perfectly 100% risk free involvement.
 please ensure to keep this matter strictly confidential, my partner will file a claim for this 
money on your 
behalf from the south African Mining Co-operation, when the claim is approved, you as the 
beneficiary will 
be paid (30%) of the total amouth, since this money can be paid directly into any bank account of 
your 
choice, you have responsibility to ensure that my partner and i will receive (70%) of the total 
amount, and 
unforeseen expenses in the cause of transferring this money.
 
I will appreciate if you will give your assurance and guarantee that our share will be well 
secured, please 
for  the sake of confidentiality ,contact me on my personal email:  jacobmardon@netscape.net 
Let me know if this proposal is acceptable to you and kindly contact me as soon as possible for 
better 
clarification relating to this transaction.
