Media Accountant B. Comp. (Hon's,) IMM
ATTN: The Managing Director/ CEO:
It is my pleasure to inform you of a transaction involving the transfer
of Two Million United States Dollars (US$ 2M) to a foreign account
for safe keeping pending my arrival with my colleagues for sharing with
you as the account owner. I am a media-relations accountant with the
South African Anglo Gold Corporation in Johannesburg and this money
originated from an over invoiced contract executed for the Co-operation some
On completion and inspection of the contract the payment voucher was
approved and the money involved made available for the payment to the
contractors. We are high profile officials therefore we are not liable to
come for the claim of this money.
We are looking for an honest company or individual abroad whose
particulars will be tendered by us here in South Africa as one of the
contractors that executed the project for the collection of the money. To
effect this transfer I therefore request the following: Your number, the
name of your bank, the address where this money will be transferred into
and also your fax and telephone number for quick and confidential
Upon due consideration, you were strongly recommended to us. Although
we have never met before as to know the extent of your honesty, but
based on the recommendation I personally want to believe that you will not
sit on our money once finally transferred into your account.
It is on this note that I considered it proper to write you, asking for
your consent, permission and support to transfer this money into your
account. You should not fear any risk because we have concluded the
arrangement to safeguard you and this transaction yet at the same time we
would not like you to publicize this transaction for our own safety: it
requires high levels of secrecy, and confidence. Here below are
details regarding the sharing modalities:
1. 5% will be used to settle transference charges and local protocols
2. 25% will be given to you for using your account
3. 70% will belong to the fund originators.
I shall expect an immediate reply from you if you are willing and
capable to assist. Please note that all correspondence should be strictly
Mrs. Cecilia Nomonde.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
