NO.12 KAROB STREET, FOURWAYSGARDEN, JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA. Dear Sir/madam, RE: CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS OFFER In appreciation of your esteemed contact received through a reliable source and the choice of your country I wish to introduce myself, knowing that this mail may come to you as a surprise considering the fact that we do not know each other before, my name is MR. ZAMIKHAYA ZUMA I am a Director of logistic in a reputable security company here in South Africa. However, I decided to contact you over a business transaction worth FIFTY SIX MILLION FOUR HUNDRED THOUSANDS UNITED STATES DOLLARS (USD56,400.000.00), in other to entrust into your care. This was an abandoned consignment with a ZAIREAN origin, which was deposited in our facility by a late client, the consignment was deposited as family valuables (precious metals) which I later discovered that it contained cash money and the late client is a German citizen in the name of Mr. Andreas Schranner, who died in a concord airliner with his entire family that crashed in france on the 25th of July, 2000. I was very fortunate to find the file of the deceased when I was going through the old files of 2000-2001. And the profile shows that he was the president of one of the many mining companies in the Zaire now Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and a close allied to the late President MOBUTU SESESEKU, who was overthrown in a bloody coup by the late President DESIRE LAURENT KABILA who was assasinated by his aid Rashidi kereke on the 16th of January, 2001. Following our companies policy, if a consignment stands in our facility for over a period of three years unclaimed by the owner or next of kin, that particular consignment will be transferred into the security treasury as unclaimed. The company now has the right to open or auction the item or what ever is contained, So it is in the light of this that I am soliciting for your assistance to claim this particular consignment as there are no next of kin or family member that is coming to claim this consignment after my careful investigation. Since the real beneficiary of the funds died, my company is expecting that the next of kin or any family member will come forward for the claim, so I intend to present you as this next of kin with all the appropriate documentation to back up our claim and with me as an insider it will be risk free and very easy. If you are capable and really willing to work with me on this project I would like you to contact me ASAP as time is of the essence. Also our sharing ratio would be 70% for me and 27% for you, 3% would be for any expense we might incur during the process. Please contact me via fax No. (27-11-507 5015), And confirm the receipt of your fax on the telephone N0.(+27 73 483 0058), I will be looking forward to hearing from you soonest. Yours sincerely, Mr. Zamikhaya Zuma _________________________________________________________________See their smiles, hear their laughter with Windows Live Messenger! http://messenger.live.com
