Hello, RE: TRANSFER OF $ 26,000.000.00 USD (ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLAR) I am Dr.George Mantle, the Auditor General of prime banks here South Africa, during the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has operated on this account again.After going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will beforfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is a foreigner, a miner and an industrialist.He made millions of dollars before he died misteriously .Since 1993 no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it. My investigation proved to me that the account has no other beneficiary and that the deceased until his death was the manager of his companies in SA. We will start the first transfer with six million dollars [$6,000,000.00] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account. The amount involved is (USD 26M) Twenty six million United States Dollars only. I want to first transfer $6,000.000 [Six million United States Dollar] from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest, but I don't know any foreigner. I am revealing this to you with believein God that you will never let me down in this business. Also send your private telephone number and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit. I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down in this business proposition. With my influence and the position of a bank official whom is working in our favour we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring. Best Regards, Dr.George Mantle. _________________________________________________________________ Looking for that special gift? Find it with MSN Search! http://search.msn.co.za
