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 the 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 Mr. Frank Sibanda, credit officer of Wizzit bank South Africa. On October 6,2005 a German consultant/contractor with South African Solid Mineral Corporation. Mr. Andreas Schranner made a fixed deposit for twelve calendar month valued at US$13,000,000,00(Thirteen 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 finally we discovered from his contract employers the South African Solid Mineral Corporation that Mr Andreas Schranner died in a fatal plane crash, all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless . I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank. This sum of US$13, 000, 000,00 is still 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 the South African foreign and defenses affairs at the expiration such funds will 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. Andreas Schranner 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 any expenses incurred in the course of the transaction.
There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done and with my position as the credit 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.
