Dear good Friend,
With due respect I got your information while searching for a reliable person who will assist me in a business proposal that will be of great benefit to both you and me. I have laid all the trust in you before I decided to disclose this confidential transaction to you.
I am Attorney Boris Caleb, an Attorney at Law. I have an urgent and very profitable business proposition for you that should be handled with extreme confidentiality. I know this proposal will come to you as a surprise for the fact that we have not met before believing that transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive or worried but I can assure you that you will not regret been part of this mutual beneficial transaction.
SUBJECT: A deceased Client of mine Name withhold, whom here in shall be referred to as my client, made a numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$16.5Million Dollars (Sixteen Million, Five Hundred thousand United States Dollars Only in a commercial Bank on May 10,2008.
My client was a Consultant, and contractor with the South Africa Solid Minerals Corporation (SSMC).Upon maturity the Bank sent a routine notification in accordance with the Company policy to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month they sent a reminder and finally it was discovered from his contract employers South Africa Solid Minerals Corporation (SSMC) that My Client, his wife and two children died in plane crash in the year 2008.
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a Will and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigations and discovered that my client did not declare any next of kin or relations in the Deposit paperwork with the Bank.
This sum of US$16.5million I understand was kept in the bank for safekeeping for a contract that he intended to execute. No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to the Government Law as provided in section 129 sub 63(N), South Africa Banking Edit of 1961 at the expiration of 5 years the money will revert to the ownership of the South African Government, if nobody applies to claim the fund.
My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and beneficiary
of my deceased client so that the proceeds of this account valued at $16.5million can be paid to you, so we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage of 50% for me 50% for you.
All legal documents to back up your claim as the deceased Next of Kin will be provided by me. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
You're most urgent response will be highly appreciated to avoid making further contacts.
Caleb Boris Esq.
