I am the Auditor General of one of the prime banks here in South
Africa. During the course of our auditing, I discovered floating fund in an
account opened in the bank in since 1998 and since 2000, nobody has operated
this account again. After going through some old files in the records I
discovered that the owner of the account died without a [Heir/WILL], hence
the money is in sundry and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will
be forfeited to the bank as excess profit.
The owner of this account is a foreigner, a great farmer and he died
in 2000.No other person knows about this account or anything concerning
it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me
as well that until his death he was the manager of AGRI-GOLD ARK [pty]. SA.
We will start the first transfer with Six million [$6,000.000] upon
successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-
apply for the payment of the rest of the amount to your account that you
will provide. The total amount involved is ($26 Million) Twenty six million
United States Dollars only.I am only contacting you as a farmer because this
money can not be approved to
a local person in South Africa, but can only be approved to any
foreigner whom the bank will believe was a partner to the deceased and in
similar business.
However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us together when we meet
face to face after the first transfer of $6 million before transferring the
second part of $20 million. I am revealing this to you with believe in God
that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the
only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently
so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. Send also your
private telephone and fax number so that we can discuss other details.
I would want this funds to be invested into your company business and our
sharing modus will be 7% will be mapped out for all expenses and
miscellaneous that will be incurred in the course of this transaction, 3%
will go to our contact person in the pay out centre in Europe where the
funds will be booked for payment, 30% of the investment will go to you and I
will have 60%.
I am presently in Europe trying to perfect some documents regarding the
funds claim so that once you indicate interest it will be easy to follow up
as I will be here for only 3 days on official trip.
Kindly respond if you are interested in this proposal so that once I
go back home to South Africa I can start normalizing the documents in your
favour with my influence and my position in the bank as I am due for
retirement. My contact person in the payment centre in Europe will do
everything possible to assist in the course of the process so that it will
be a hitch free transaction with success achieved. I will destroy all
documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace
to any place and to build confidence you can reach me for heart to heart
discussion through my security encrypted E-mail:,
which I secured for the confidentiality and safety of this business as you
know that this business is confidential. I will use my position and
influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to
your account with appropriate
clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange
I look forward to your earliest reply.
Sincerely Yours,
Mr. Johnson Markin
