FROM:BARRISTER MAXWEL RICHARD KHUMALO(BA. LLB)
ATTN: DIRECTOR/ CEO,
I am Barrister Maxwell Richard Khumalo of the above firm and a legal adviser to Engineer Philippe Dominique, a national of
France who used to be a contractor with ANGLO GOLD MINES Mafikeng. A Gold Mining/Exploration Corporation in South Africa hereafter shall be referred to as my client. On February 21, 2004 my client, his wife and two kids were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives on the incident. Since then I have made several personal inquiries from the Embassy to locate any of my client’s extended relatives, this has proved unsuccessful.
After several unsuccessful attempts, I now decided to inform you. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local
bank here, but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in US Dollars and the deceased owner of the account Engineer Philippe Dominique was a foreigner thus the need to involve a foreign account. I need your full corporation to make this work out a success because the Standard Bank of South Africa precisely is ready to approve this payment valued at US$ 18.5 (EIGHTEEN MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) to whoever that has correct information to this account. Every relevant information to this trace is on my desk. The bank has issued me notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated and declared unserviceable.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relative for over a period of time, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased irrespective of nationality so that the proceeds of this account valued as US$18,500,000.00 (EIGHTEEN
MILLION , FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) shall be transferred to your designated account and I shall proceed down to your country on confirmation of the fund in your account to discuss with you on how to invest the money ,meanwhile you will be required here (south Africa) to endorse your signature on some of the documents as the next of kin to the deceased once the fund has been approved by the bank.
I shall revalidate and notorise all the relevant legal documents that can be used to back up any claim that the bank may need. This is a riskfree transaction because the banker who is in charge of the account section is involved. I will let you know the benefiting conditions of your help in my next message when I receive your positive response. I guarantee you this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect from any breach of the law. Kindly call me on my phone number before sending me any fax messages
for security reasons, alternatively you may send to my private email id : email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org> . I need your strong assurance and confidentiality.
God bless us.
BARRISTER MAXWEL RICHARD KHUMALO
