From: Mr. Paul Hamilton
I am a treasury manager of a well known bank here in South Africa. I have
a concealed business suggestion for us to do. We had a client named MR.
ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany. He was a contractor and an arms dealer
to The South African National Government. He made several deposits
(fixed) with our treasury department amounting to $15.5million upon maturity,
several notices where sent to him but we never got a response until we
discovered that he and his entire family died in an air crash in the year
2000. Below is a website which I will appreciate you going through to read the
Since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money
because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of neither the
account nor the funds. I have secretly discussed this matter with a senior
manager with us and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal
with us although due to his position he did not want to take active part but
as soon as you follow my instructions everything will be successful because we
will be working hand in hand with him. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to
you is that we would like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to
the late Andreas Schranner so you will be able to receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE?

shall come out successful. I have contacted someone in the South African
department of Justice who will prepare the necessary document that will back
you up as the next of kin to Mr. Andreas Schranner. All that is required from
you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, Address and
contact telephone number so that the person who will handle the title
documents can commence his job. As soon as this is done a letter of
probate/Administration will be issued in your favor for making you the
Administrator of the late Mr. Andreas Schranner's Estate and with this you can
make application for the release of the funds with our Bank to
There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are
going adopt legal methods in applying for the release of the funds to you.
Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this
Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we
shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 35% for you and 5% for any expenses
incurred during the course of this Transaction. Should you be interested
please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication, you
can write me via my private email address and I will provide you with more
details of this operation. Your prompt response to this letter will be
