                   ( RE: TRANSFER OF 
($125,000.000.00 USD)
I want to transfer ($125,000.000.00 USD) One Hundred &Twenty 
five million United States Dollars from a Prime Bank here in South 
Africa to an oversea account.First, I must solicit your strictest 
confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of it's nature as 
being utterly confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your 
ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great 
I solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the said 
amount into your safe account for unward investment.You can either 
provide us with an existing account or to set up a new Bank account 
immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to 
receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the 
end of this important business trusting in you and believing that you 
will never let me down
either now or in future.
I am the personal 
account officer to the great late INDUSTRIALIST who has an account in 
one of the top banks here in South Africa. The account was opened in 
1998 and he died in 2003 without a written or oral WILL and since 2003 
nobody has operated on this account again hence the money is floating 
and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for 
The owner of this account is a foreigner and no other person 
knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no 
other beneficiary and until his death he was the manager of the 
company.  My investigation through the National immigration department 
proved to me as well that he was single as at the time of his entry 
into the Republic of South Africa. The amount in this account is 
USD$125 Million
( One Hundred & Twenty five Million United States 
Dollars ) only.
As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer this 
fund abroad for investment. Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary 
because the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner who has 
correct information to this account which I will give to you 
immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me.There is 
no risk in this business. With my position and my personal contact with 
the manager of the bank, the money can be transferred to any account 
you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending 
our physical arrival in your country for sharing.
We will start the 
first transfer with Twenty five million[$25,000.000]. Upon successful 
transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply 
for the payment of the remaining balance of $100 Million to your 
account. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can 
not be approved to a local person here, but can only be pproved to any 
foreigner who has the correct information of the account which I will 
provide for you.
So you should provide me with your correct account 
detail where you will like the fund to be transferred or you can set up 
a new account for the transfer even an empty account is ok. At the 
conclussion of the transfer you will take 35%,5% will be for any 
expenses both parties incurred in the process of this business and the 
remaining 60% will be for me. As soon as I hear from you and upon your 
strong assurance that you will not let me down once the fund goes into 
your account I will then start the processing of the transfer of the 
fund to your account without further delay.
Contact me urgently via 
telephone or email via my private email 
Yours Faithfully,
John Dons
