Dear Sir/Madam,

Please accept my apology if this letter comes to you as a surprise since I believe that we don?t know each other before now, but for the purpose of introduction, my name is

Dennis Naidoo, the Auditor of AMALGAMATED BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA (ABSA). There is an account opened in this bank in 1980, but since the death of the account owner, no surviving beneficiary has come forth to claim this fund.

After going through some old files within the bank for the second quarters of the year, I discovered that if this money is not remitted out of this country immediately, it will be

forfeited for nothing or better described as ?retired account by Board of Directors of the bank who actually will use this money in enriching a few already over-rich bank owners.

On further investigation, I discovered that even the company (Kruger Gold Co) where the late account owner who was a foreigner worked as a miner/geologist have no

knowledge of the existence of this account or about the fund involved (US$26,M) TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS. As the money is in US Dollars account and can only be approved to a foreigner with some required information as the next

of kin, I am contacting you to establish a relationship and possible transfer of this money into your nominated account outside South Africa.

Also, everything concerning the payment and transfer of this money would be done legally with all the necessary paper work processed and submitted to the bank to enable the payment into your nominated bank account. It is very essential that I have your full cooperation/undivided commitment to make this noble transaction be successful as the management of the bank is prepared to approve the remittance of this money to any foreigner who comes forth as the beneficiary.

In order to assist me realize this golden opportunity, 25% of the total sum will be earmarked as your share while 10% shall be set aside for any incidental expenses which may occur in the eventual payment and transfer of this money.

Please indicate your willingness to assist me with this transaction by calling me on this phone number: 27-73-119 0475or E-mail address as stated above.

Due to my sensitive position within the bank, let us keep this transaction in top confidence and be assured that this business is a 100% risk free.

Expecting to hear from you soonest.

Best Regards,

Dennis Naidoo

Here's one I just got....


My name is Mrs.Regina Ahmed, widow to late Mr.Hassan Ahmed former owner of Petroleum & Gas company, here in Kuwait. I am 68 years old, suffering from long time Cancer of the breast From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live more than 2 months according to my doctors. This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don't want your pity but I need your trust.
My late husband died early last year from Heart attack, and during the period of our marriage we couldn't produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. The doctor has advised me that I will not live for more than 2 months, so I have now decided to spread all my wealth, to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, Asia and Europe.
Hope you are not embarrassed by my mail I found your e-mail address in the web directory, and i have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive, you can ignore it and please accept my apology.
Before my late husband died he was major oil tycoon, in Kuwait and deposited the sum of USD$ 25 million dollars (Twenty Five million dollars) in a company in Europe some years ago, that is all I have left now, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charity .so that when I die my soul can rest in peace. The funds will be entirely in hands and management. I hope God gives you the wisdom to touch very many lives that is my main concern.
20% of this money will be for your time and effort, while 80% goes to charity.
Please reply back to me on this email: [email protected]

God bless you.
