FROM THE DESK OF
DR. DAVID KGOBUDI
FNB BANK PLC
TEL: +27 83 979 0894
I know that you will be surprised to receive this letter. First and foremost, I apologize using this medium
to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt
access reposed on this medium. Be informed that I obtained your enviable credentials/particulars from
the South African Export Promotion Council. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you
in the execution of the deal described here under for the benefit of both parties.
I am Dr. David Kgobudi, audit department of FNB bank Plc South Africa. On October 6th 2005, an
American consultant/contractor with South African Solid Mineral Corporation. Mr. Smith Lawrence made
a fixed Deposit for Twelve calendar month valued at US$20,000,000,00(twenty million dollars only) in
my branch. Upon maturity I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but no reply, after a
month we sent a reminder and no response. Finally, we discovered from his contract employers the
South African Solid Mineral Corporation that Mr. Smith Lawrence died in a fatal motor accident along
Pretoria - Johannesburg expressway and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless .
We made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Smith Lawrence did not declare any next of kin or
relations in all his official documents including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank. This sum of
US$20, 000, 000.OO is still in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the
end of each year.
According to the South African foreign and defenses affairs, at the expiration of 5(five) years such funds
is not claimed back either by the owner or next of kin, it will be automatically revert to the ownership of
South African Government for financing military operations such as arms purchasing and ammunitions
for the military. In order to avert this negative development, I will like to seek for your permission as a
foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. Smith Lawrence so that the fruit of this old man's labor will
not be use for financing weapons which will further enhance the causes of war in the world in general.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 30% for you and
10% for expenses incurred in the course of the transaction.
There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by my attorney and with my
position as the audit officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested
please reply immediately. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details that will help
you understand the transaction. You should observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both us because I shall require your assistance to invest my
share in your country.
Thanks and regards
Dr. David Kgobudi.
