Dear Sir/Madam, 

I am Mr.Maxwell Tambo, Bank Manager of a Reputable bank in Johannesburg, Gauteng Province,Republic 
of South Africa. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.On feb 27, 
2001, a British Contractor with the South African Mining Corporation, (Name deliberately with held) 
made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$50,000,000.00 (Ffity 
Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding 
address but got no reply. 

After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the South 
African Mining Corporation, that the depositor died from an automobile accident. On further 
investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next 
of kin was fruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that the depositor did 
not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents,US$50,00,000.00 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. According to Laws of Republic of South Africa,at 
the expiration of 10(Ten) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the South African 
Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as 
a foreigner to stand in as THE NEXT OF KIN to the depositor so that the fruits of this old man's 
labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt go

A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of 
this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.The money will be paid into your account for us to 
share in the ratio of 60%for me and 35% for you and 5% for any expenses that we are going to 
incue.There is no risk at all and if you are interested, please reply immediately via the private 
email address.Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents 
that will help you understand the transaction. 

Please send me your full name,age,occupation,address, confidential telephone and fax numbers for 
easy communication and also,Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this 
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to 
invest my share in your country. 

Thanks and Regards. 
Mr.Maxwell Tambo
