Dear Sir,
I am Mr. Joseph Nkosi, the Chief Auditor of a commercial Bank here in South Africa. I got your contact address from the world trade journal and after going through your profile I decided to transact business with you believing that you will not betray the trust that I want to bestow in you.
Recently, as I was working officially on old files in the bank records department, I discovered a resident account, which was opened in 1980 and was last operated in 1992.
The account owner was a geologist by profession with the Kruger Gold Company here in South Africa. Unfortunately he died in 1992 and since then the account has not been operated. He does not have in our record either a next of keen or another signatory to the account that could possibly claim the money in his account. He in his record has a sum of  US$9Million (Nine Million United States Dollars) in his account.
I need a trustworthy foreign account detail and someone to assist me transfers this money to his/her confidential offshore account. With my position now in the bank, I can organize this transfer to any reliable offshore account with an assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country.
I will destroy all the documents relating to this money leaving no trace of it. You can also come down to South Africa to discuss with me formally if you so wish. I intend to invest my own part of the money in any profitable business in your country on your advice. Be rest assured that you stand no risk of any kinds as all the modalities for the transfer has been well perfected with my position.
I count on your sense of confidentiality, as it is my desire that you keep this proposal to yourself. After the transfer, you will get 25% of the total money, 70% will be for me, while 5% will be for the expenses that will be incurred in the process of the transfer.
Contact me immediately with the above private tel./fax number for us to start the transaction not forgetting to include your private fax and phone number for easier communication.
Best regards,
