MR. Benson douglas
Tel +27 73 2349 108.
Courtesy of business opportunity, I take liberty anchored on strong desire to s
olicit for your assistance on this mutual beneficiary and risk free transaction
with you, which I hope you give urgent attention. To be precise, I am Mr Benso
n Douglas the manager of bills/exchange at the foreign remittance department of
ABSA Bank. In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of US$ 26.5 Millio
n (Twenty Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in an accoun
t that belongs to one of our customers who died along with his entire family in
1988 Lockerbie Pan American Airline plane crash. Since we got information abou
t his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his
money because we cannot release it unless somebody applied for it as next of ki
n or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking procedures, but unfor
tunately to no avail and nobody has come forward to claim the money.
Therefore, upon this discovery that I and other two officials in my department
now decide to establish a cordial business relationship with you, hence my cont
acting you. We want you to purportedly present our good self as the next of kin
or relation of the deceased so that we can release the fund (money) into your
account for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it an
d again we do not want the money to go into the government account as unclaimed
The banking law and procedures herein stipulates that any accounts abandoned or
dormant for a period of some years is subject to be closed and all money conta
ined therein will be forfeited to the government treasury account.
Now it is being speculated that the above sum will be transferred into governme
nt treasury account as unclaimed fund on or before December 2002. The reason fo
r you to present your good self as the next of kin is occasioned by the fact th
at the deceased customer was a foreigner. Mode of Sharing After the successful
completion of the transfer is as follows, for the role you will be expected to
play in the whole exercise, we have agreed to give you twenty (20%) of the tota
l sum, and 10% has been set aside for the
expenses we are going to encounter by both parties in the process of this trans
action and the remaining 70% shall be for my colleagues and I. In support
of the aforementioned, you are urged to reply this letter indicating your readi
ness and interest to participate in the business. After your reply,
you will be advised on the next step afterwards. I quite believe thatyou will p
rotect our interest by keeping this business top secret and confidential.
Your interest will be equally protected, as we must maintain maximum confidenti
Trust to hear from you on the above
TEL NO.OR THROUGH MY PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS count on your earliest reply.
