I am David Makakane, a credit manager with ABSA Bank
in South Africa. I am very sorry to get through to
you via this medium, though this is the only confidential
way I could do it. I have an account with my Branch here
which has been dormant because it has not operated for five
years due to the fact that the account holder FREDERICK
WONG died in an air crash along with his wife (LILLA WONG)
on the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with
other passengers on board. And he has no traceable next
of kin to lay claim to the funds. We cannot release the
fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as
the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have
you stand as a next of kin to the deceased, because by
December this year the money will be called back to the
bank treasury as unclaimed bills. So it is on this note
I decided to seek for whom his name will be used as the
next of kin/beneficiary to this funds rather than allow
the bank directors to share this money amongst them at
the end of the year, as is the common practise here in Africa.
The amount involved is Fifteen Million United States
Dollars, ($15,000,000.00). all documentation regarding
the transfer of these funds will be carefully worked out
to favour you if you will assisted and I assure you that
it is 100% risk free.
Upon the successful transfer of the funds you will have
to yourself 25% of the total money and I will invest the
rest a business venture in your country under your
supervision and advice.
Please do keep this confidential upon your acceptance get back
