I am Mr. Herbert C Ulyate the Personal Relation Officer at Rand Merchant Bank to the deceased. On May 12,
2010, one of our esteemed clients Mr. Andrew Stapleton made a numbered time (Fixed Deposit) for twelve
calendar months in my Bank since August 2009. Upon maturity, we sent a usual notice to his known address
but got no answer.
After a month we sent a reminder and finally we discovered that he went on a vacation with his family to Libya
and unfortunately they were aboard the An Afriqiyah Airways A330-200 Airbus crashed in Libya, killing 103
people as it tried to land at Tripoli airport.
On additional inquisition, the Bank discovered that he died without making a WILL or PROBATE and all efforts
made to locate any of his extended relatives proved fruitless. On further inquest, it was discovered that late
Mr. Andrew Stapleton did not state any next of kin in all his official documents.
The total sum of US$9.5M still in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the
end of each fiscal year. No one would ever come forward to claim this money. In accordance with the Financial
Services Authority Guiding Principles, the account would be declared fallow and the proceeds would be revert
to the possession of the South African Government if nobody applies as the beneficiary to the funds.
On this note, I wish to invite you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to the deceased so that the
proceeds of this account will be
released to you for us to share as similar chances do arise in the Bank and it's only the Top Executives that
siphon such funds for their own
Upon your acceptance of this proposition I shall give you comprehensive information on how this venture
would be accomplished without any hitch. Moreover, we shall employ the services of a notary here for the
purpose of procuring a letter of probate and to obtain all other pertinent documents in your name for the
requisite documentation for immediate approval of this fund to your favour.
The money would be shared in the ratio of: Fifty percent for me, forty five percent for you and five percent for
any arising contingencies during the course of this transaction.
I pledged that this venture would be accomplished under a justifiable pact that will protect you from any legal
trouble and I will use my significant influence in the bank to secure approvals and guarantee the successful
completion of this transaction.
Please be informed that your extreme discretion is required. If this proposition interests you, kindly reply me
directly by email and indicate
your readiness and willingness to finalize this transaction with me.
Equally email me with your full name, your address, year of birth, your contact telephone and fax numbers.
Upon receipt of your positive response with the requested information, I will start the preliminary
arrangements and also draft an Application letter you will endorse and send it officially to my Bank to enable
them star Administrative Processing and Approval in your favour.
Thanks for your time as I look forward to your timely and positive reply.
Mr. Herbert C Ulyate
