TEL: +27 – 76
How is the condition of health together with your family, I hope you all are healthy. Please I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise since we don't know each other before.
But for purpose of introduction, I am DR. JAMES KHUMALO, the Bank Manager of AMALGAMATED BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (ABSA). I am writing to you in connection of an account opened in this bank in 1980 and since 1999 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the record, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. However the owner of this account is Mr. Chuah B. Chong, a foreigner and a miner at Kruger gold co., a geologist by profession and he died since 1999.
No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, this account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that his company does not know anything about this account. And the amount involved is (USD 43M) Forty Three million United States Dollars. 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 bank account because the money is in US Dollars and the former owner of the account is Mr. Chuah B. Chong, is a foreigner too. I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise as we don't know ourselves before. but be sure that it is real and a genuine business.
Please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take immediately. Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the bank account to be used for the deposit / transfer. I want us to meet face to face or sign a binding agreement to bind us together so that you can receive this money into a foreign bank account of your choice where the fund will be safe.
I will fly to your country for withdrawal and sharing and also other investments. I need your full co-operation because the Director is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner, who has correct information of this account, which I will give you immediately, if you are capable and willing to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit.
Note this opportunity may never come again in our life. And With my position in the office I can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing. I will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place.
You can also come to discuss with me face to face after whom I will make this remittance in your presence and two of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account. I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. I will use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance forms of the ministries and foreign exchange departments.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 25% of the total amount, 70% will be for me, and while 5% will be for any expenditure for both parties that might incurred during the process of this transaction.
I look forward to hear from you as soon as you received this letter..
DR. JAMES KHUMALO (Manager)
