I am Mr.Patrick Zuma, credit officer of STANDARD BANK
OF SOUTH AFRICA. I have an urgent and very
confidential business proposition for you.
In June, 1999, a German property consultant and
importer of used cars ,MrAndreas Schranner made a
numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar
months, valued at US$25,000,000.00(Twenty five Million
United States Dollars only) in my branch. It was to
our utter suprise that we heard of his death,wife and
children in an AF4590 plane crash in July 2000. See
website below:< /P>

On further investigation,I found out that he died
without making a WILL,and hitherto, all attempts to
trace his next of kin was fruitless. Mr Andreas
Schranner was residing at No 7B Jubilee Road Parktown
Johannesburg South Africa.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered
that Mr Andreas Schranner
did not declare any next of kin or relations in all
his official documents, including
his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of
US$25,000,000.00 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.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a
foreigner to stand in as the next of kin or business
partner to Mr Andreas Schranner so that
the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into
the hands of some corrupt government officials. This
is simple, I will like you to provide immediate ly
your full names and address,phone and fax numbers so
that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents
and affidavits that will
put you in place as the next of kin or business
partner. I have two of my colleagues who are top
officials of the bank involved in this transaction.
Your role in the transaction is to send an application
for claim of the
funds to our bank. Then, as top officials of the bank,
we shall work behind-the-scene to make sure that your
application is approved by the management of the bank,
and the funds transfered to your nominated bank
Please note that there is no iota of risks at all as
all the paperwork forthis transaction will be done
legitimately and with our positions as top
officials of the bank would ensure a successful
execution of this transaction.
If you are interested, please reply immediately to my
email box.
Please send me your confidential telephone and fax
num bers for easy communication.All positive response
should be sent by email to
You should observe utmost CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECRECY
in this transaction,and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both
of us because I will require your assistance to invest
my share in yourcountry.
I look forward to your prompt response.

Thanks and regards.

Mr.Patrick Zuma.
