FROM: Mr. Louis Oba Auditing and Accounting Unit ABSA GROUP BANKS OF SOUTH AFRICA E-mail:email@example.com VERY URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL I am Mr. Louis Oba, the director in charge of Auditing and Accounting section of ABSA GROUP BANKS OF SOUTH AFRICA. With due respect and regard, I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us. During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on October 31st 1997 in an auto crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this bank since 1996 without any claim of this fund in our custody either from his family or relation. A close investigation revealed that the deceased has no existing relation as next of kin. The said amount is USD $35.5 (Thirty-five thousand Five Hundred Million Dollars). I want you to collaborate with me to put a claim on this money as the next of kin of the deceased account holder, Mr. Duckson Dritz. I and my colleagues will present you as the next of kin. Meanwhile all arrangement to put claim over this fund as bonfire next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to your designated foreign bank account, has been put in place. Directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us in this RISK-FREE and highly confidential transaction. On your reply, we shall discuss the sharing ratio for each party to this transaction. Please feel free to contact me on my E-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org, for further directive and or clarification on this transaction. I look forward to a mutually beneficial business relationship with you. Best wishes, Mr. Louis Oba (Auditing and Accounting Unit)
