IMMEDIATE ATTENTION! , IT IS MY PLEASURE TO CONTACT YOU FOR ASSISTANCE AND BUSINESS CO-OPERATION.I KNOW THE CONTACT OF THIS LETTER MIGHT BE SURPRISING TO YOU.BUT I ASSURE YOU THAT EVERY WORD OF IT IS TRUE.EVEN THOUGH WE HARDLY KNOW EACH OTHER I BELIEVE YOU CAN HELP ME.MEANWHILE, I GOT YOUR CONTACT IN THE WORLD BUSINESS DIRECTORY.
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department Absa Bank In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of [$15m us dollars][fifteen million us dollars]. In account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November  in an Auto crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we Lent that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the Auto crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since, nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
Our Banking law and guideline here stipulate that if such money remained unclaimed after ten years, the money will be transfer into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a [SOUTH AFRICA NATIONALITY] cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. [40%] of this money will be for you as foreign partners respect to the provision of a foreign account, and [60%] would be for me.
There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply i will send to you by fax or email, with the text of application. And I will not fail to bring you notice that, this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
