I am an Auditor General in one of the major leading banks in South Africa. In my Bank, I discovered an abandoned large sum of money (US$14.7M) belonging to one of our late Foreign Customer. Since 1996, nobody has operated this account,and the owner of this account, MR.SEAN BURKE, an American National, also a businessman based in South Africa, was involved in an air crash in which he died on August 6, 1997. Please confirm from this web site to know more. http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list I am basically writing to you to seek your sincere Co-operation to present you as the only sole business partner beneficiary to this deceased name above since he specified no beneficiary,and no other person knows about this Account. The strategy/plan is to use my influence as Auditor of the bank to approve the funds to you. If you are keen/interested let me know so that I can explain further details and next procedure/modalities more precisely and the share ratio. Sincere Regards. Mrs.Linda Mahlungu.
