 I am Mr.Berad Bartic, Bank Manager of a reputable bank in
 Johannesburg,Gauteng Province,Republic of South Africa. I have
 urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
 On March 6, 2002, a British Minning consultant/contractor with the
 South African Mining Corporation , (Name deliberately with held) made
 a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months,
 valued at US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million five Hundred Thousand
 Dollars) in
 my branch.
 Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address
 but got
 no reply.
 Last Novermber, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from
 his contract employers, the South African Mining Corporation , that
 the depositor died of Harth Failure. On further
 investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all
 to trace his next of kin was not find.
 I therefore made further investigation and discovered that the
 depositor did not declare any kin or relations in all his
 official documents, US$12,500,000.00 is still sitting in my
 Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the
 end of each
 year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of
 Republic of south Africa, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money
 will revert to the ownership of the South African Government if nobody
 applies to claim the fund.
 Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a
 foreigner to stand in as THE NEXT OF KIN to the depositor. This is
 simple, I will like you to provide
 immediately your full names and address so that My attorney will prepare
 necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the
 of kin.
 We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and
 notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents
 and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A
 bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then
 facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of
 The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of
 65% for me and 35% for you.
 There is no risk at all as all the paper work for this transaction will
 be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager
 guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you
 are interested, please reply immediately via the private email
 address above.
 Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details
 and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
 Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy
 Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that
 this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I
 shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
