Mr. Mpho George,
ABSA Bank Limited,
Johannesburg, South Africa.

Dear Sir,
I am Mr.Mpho George, manager of bills/exchange at the foreign
remittance department of ABSA Bank. In my department, we discovered
an abandoned sum of US$14,700,000.00(Fourteen Million, Seven
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only) in an account that
belonged to one of our foreign customers who died along with his
entire family, on November 1996, in a ghastly plane crash, and he
happened to be a Foreigner.

Since we got the information about his death, we have been
expecting his next-of-kin to come over and claim his money because
we can not release it unless somebody applied for it as next of kin
or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Unfortunately, nobody has come forward to claim this money.

It is based on this that some officials in my department and I have
decided to establish a cordial business relationship with you,
hence by contacting you. We want you to present yourself as the
next of kin through your relation with the deceased, so that the
funds can be remitted into your account.

Moreover, we do not want the money to go into the government
account as unclaimed bills. The banking law and guidelines here
stipulates that any account abandoned or is dormant for a period of
years, is deemed closed and all money contained therein forfeited
to the government treasury account.

Now, it is being speculated that the above sum will be transferred
into the government account as an unclaimed fund on or before the
end of this of 2006, when nobody come forward to lay claims. The
reason for requesting you to present yourself as next of kin, is
occasioned by, the fact that the deceased (customer) was a
foreigner, and we have access to his detailed bio data which you
will hold as a weapon to present yourself as the next of kin.
The mode of sharing after a successful transfer of the money into
your account, shall be 70% to my colleagues and I, for the role you
will be expected to play in this deal, we have agreed to give you
25% of the total sum and 5% for the expenses we are going to
encounter by the two parties in the course of this transaction.
Therefore, you are expected to reply this letter indicating your
readiness and interest to participate in this

After receiving your reply, you will be communicated to with the
exact steps to take. I expect your urgent response through my email
address mpho-george@excite.com I shall contact you for further
discussion on this matter, to enable us conclude this transaction
urgently without any delay or hitch.

Please treat this business proposal as strictly confidential for
security reasons considering my official position in ABSA Bank.
