Dear Sir/ Madam
I am DR. NATHAN PATRICK GAMA, the chief auditor of The Amalgamated Bank of South Africa and I got your contact address from your country's Trade Journal. Your impressive and managerial records made me to solicit for your partnership in this regard.
You are the only person that I have contacted in regards to this business and I believe that you will not let me down. After going through some old files in the records department, I discovered that there is an account opened in this bank in 1995 and from 2000 nobody has operated on this account. The owners of this account late Mr. Jerome N. Snaga, a foreigner and a miner at the Anglo Gold Platinum Mining Company in Mafikeng, as a geologist by profession He died since 2001.
Up till now, no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is (US$11.5Million) Eleven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars.
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local bank here, but can be approved to any foreign account because the money is in US dollars and the former owner of the account Mr. Snaga was a foreigner and because of the need to involve a foreign account, I need your full cooperation in order for these funds to be transferred smoothly because the management is ready to approve this payment to whoever that has correct information to this account of which I will give to you later, if you are able to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instruction and advice for our mutual benefits because this opportunity will never come again in my life.
I need your strong assurance, honesty trust and reliability with my position now in this office; I can transfer this money to any reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing of this money.
I will destroy all documents of transaction immediately you receive this fund into your account, leaving no trace of any kind in the system. You can also come to discuss with me personally before the remittance can in both our presence if so desire. We will then travel to your country at least two days ahead before money gets into your account. I have the tendency to invest my own share of the money in your country in expectation of a sound management and good capital returns according to your advice.
Be assured that you stand no risk of any kind as the fund belongs to us now. Therefore, after the initial stage of the transfer of this fund, you will be apportioned 30% of the total fund, 60% will be for me while 5% will be set aside for expenses that might be incurred during the course of this transaction.
I strongly believe that associating with you to embark on this fund and other business ventures will derive a huge success thereafter. I will use my position to influence the approvals and onward transfer of this money to your personal account with appropriate clearance forms from the ministries and Foreign Exchange Control Department.
I am looking forward to your quick and positive response so as to furnish you with all the required information to effect this transaction. Your full particulars will be needed in this juncture.
DR. NATHAN PATRICK GAMA
