                                      HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT

Hello Dear,

I know it will be a surprise to receive this letter from a stranger, anyway let me start by introducing myself to you. I am Mr. Johnson Alex, from Gauteng, South Africa. I work with a bank in South Africa, and the reason of this mail is about business transfer of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.


I discovered an abandoned sum of Twenty-Two Million United States Dollars ($22,000,000.00) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family. Since his death, none of his next-of kin or relations has come forward to lay claims for this money as the heir. I cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the funds to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin. It may interest you to know that I have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of deceased beneficiaries.

Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business, Endeavor by furnishing me with the following, which will be used to transfer the funds into your account with immediate effect.

1. Beneficiary name and address.
2. Your bank account details.
3. Copy of your international passport.
4. Your private telephone / fax number.

These requirements will enable me file letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer can be made. I shall be compensating you with 25% of the total money on final conclusion of this project, and 5% will be map out for any expenses with might incur during transferring of the funds, while the rest shall be for me. Your share stays while the rest shall be for me for investment purposes. I find myself privileged to have this information and this is a great opportunity of a lifetime of success without risks.

Look forward to your urgent responses,

Mr. Johnson Alex.
