Attached Message from Mr. Lindsay Peter Ralphs - Please keep confidential
I know this email message will reach you as a surprise, but you need not to worry as I'm using this as
the best secured and confidential medium available to seek for foreign assistance and partnership in
a business transaction which will be of a great benefit to both of us. It is with trust that I wish to
contact you on this matter concerning transfer of $100 million United State dollars. I am Mr. Lindsay
Peter Ralphs, the CEO of Bidvest Bank South Africa.
There is a dormant account in this bank that contains the sum of $100 million United State dollars
which I want to move out of this country with your assistance. I decided to seize this opportunity
and move this fund out of this country where I can invest it into any lucrative business of my choice
because it has long overstayed without any claim over it and our bank will confiscate it within a short
time. Therefore I humbly request your urgent assistance to move this money out of this country
after which I shall come for the sharing.
This transaction is risk free because as the CEO of this bank I have all it takes to get this transaction
to a successful completion.
For your assistance, you will be offered 30% of the total sum. Once I receive your positive response, I
will start to prepare the documents for the transfer of the fund to your overseas bank account.
Please as I stated above, this transaction is strictly confidential and if your faith does not permit this
kind of deal/transaction, kindly indicate and do not take any action against me. Your replies can be
directed to this email for security purposes: email@example.com
Lindsay Peter Ralphs
CEO, Bidvest Group Limited
