From:Fred Dotse Bezuidenhout Rd., Hurlyvale,Johannesburg South Africa. With due respect and regards.I am the External Auditor of a prime bank here in South Africa and In course of my duty I discovered that ENGR. ANDERSON NORTHLEY until his death he was the owner of Defunct ANDERSON OIL SERVICE PTY SOUTH AFRICA an industrialist and a foreigner,hence the deceased have a floating account opened in the bank in 2001 and before his death he has no WILL or Heir apparent to the throne and no other one who know about this fund because after his death his company was liquidated by the management and during my stay with him his parents was reported died in a plane crash. As a matter of fact this is a life given back to us to make better use of it to assist the humanity.The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than six years and it will be fortified for nothing and be used by the top government officials to supress and subdue the poor masses in the society. In veiw of all this I decided to seek for a reliable and trustworthy foreigner who shall forward an application to the bank as the next of kin so that the fund will be approved in his or her favour. I need your assist to transfer this fund to safe haven in your country for onward investment in Lucrative business in your country. The total amount involved is Seventeen Million Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only.We will start the first transfer After this first transfer without any let down from your side b/c you know that this opportunity requries great trust and confidentiality as you know that no business survives without secrecy,we will be together in your country to transfer the remaning balance($10m) At the conclusion of this business,you will be given 35% of the total amount,60% will be for me and my co-partner,while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the transfer process. I look forward to your earliest reply for further correspondence. Regards, Fred Dotse.
