Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Mr. Lucas Sisulu the Chief Operating Officer in Accounting Unit of Standard Bank of South Africa (SBSA) This message might meet you in utmost surprise. However, its just my urgent need for a foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction.

An account was opened in my bank by one of my costumer in the name of MR. THOMAS BAHIA a Dutch National from Germany who was a consultant/contractor with the Federal Ministry of Mines and Power here in South Africa made a numbered time fixed Deposit, valued at $11,500,000.00 (Eleven Million, Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) for twelve (12) calendar months in my Bank branch and since 2010, this account has never be operated.

Upon maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally I discovered from his contract employers that MR. THOMAS BAHIA is no longer on earth because he died with his entire family on a plane crash that occurred in Libya on the 12th of May 2010 and below is a link for your view.

The said fund is still in my Bank branch and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. Now the fund is $12,200,000.00 (Twelve Million Two Hundred Thousand US Dollars) because of the accumulated interest.

In accordance with South Africa Government Law, at the expiration of 10 (Ten) years, the money will be reverted back to the ownership of the Government of South Africa if nobody comes forward for the funds and it will be tag unclaimed funds.

Consequently, I want to present you as the next of kin to this late customer; hence you are a foreigner like him and the funds will be transferred to your Bank account and after the successful transfer of the funds, I will come over to your country for the sharing and the money will be shared in the ratio of 45% for me, 45% for you and 10% to cover our expenses after the deal.

There is no risk involved, as I will use my position in the Bank to secure approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction within 9-working days.

If this proposal interests you, let me know by sending me an email and I will send to you detailed Information on how this business would be successfully transacted. Be informed that nobody knows about the secret of this fund except me and I know how to carry out the entire transaction.

Please include your private phone numbers for a voice talk and reply me through the email below:

Looking forward to your urgent reply to enable me give you more details and you can as well give me a call.
