Dear Sir/Madam,
We want to transfer to overseas ($ 126,000.000.00 USD) One hundred and Twenty six million United States Dollars) from a Bank in Africa, I want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end for this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in future.
I am the Auditor General of a bank in Africa, during the course of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1995 and since 1998 nobody has operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. the owner of this account is Mr. Frankline Sullivan, a foreigner, and a sailor, and he died, since 1998. and no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that Frankline Sullivan until his death was the manager Sullivan Coy.(pty). SA.
We will start the first transfer with Twenty six million [$26,000.000] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining rest amount to your account.
The amount involved is (USD 126M) One hundred and Twenty Six million United States Dollars, only I want to first transfer $26,000.000 [Twenty Six million United States Dollar from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest, but I don’t know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in us dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr. Frankline Sullivan is a foreigner too, [and the money can only be approved
into a foreign a/c.
However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us together I got your contact address from my secretary who operates computer, I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit.
I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together before transferring the money to any account of your choice where the fund will be safe. Before we fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine. because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business.
I need your strong assurance that you will never, never let me down,With my influence and the position of the bank official we can transfer this money to any foreigner’s reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three 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 obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring.
I look forward to your earliest reply through my email
Also you may call me on my satelite phone no 882-1646685262 When dialing,do not add South African country code,only add your country’s international dail out code because it’s a satelite phone.
May God bless you.

  1. YES JUSTIN. IT IS ME JEFF. BLESS OUR ALL POWERFUL GOD THAT YOU HAVE MADE IT SAFELY AND HEALTHFULLY INTO THE PRESENT DAY.
    AS YOU CAN TELL I AM NOW A SUSSESSFUL AUDITOR OF A BANK IN AFRICA. IT IS A GOOD JOB AND I PRAISE ALLAH EACH AND EVERY DAY FOR MY GOOD FORTUNE.
    SINCE WE ALREADY KNOW ONE ANOTHER SO WELL FROM OUR UNIVERSITY DAYS DO YOU THINK YOU COULD HELP ME OUT? WE CAN SKIP THE MEETING I MENTIONED IN MY MAIL (AS I WASN’T SURE IT WAS YOU I WAS CONTACTING. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN JAPAN WITH YOUR NAME). IF YOU JUST POST YOUR BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS WE CAN GET STARTED.
    I AM TRUSTING THAT YOUR MOTHER IS STILL IN GOOD HEALTH?
    YOUR TRUSTED FRIEND AND ACQUAINTANCE,
    JEFF

  2. OH WHY HELLO MRS. JUSTIN AND HOW WOULD YOU BE DOING THIS FINE SUMMER DAY? YOU MAY NOT RECALL, BUT I WAS VERY CLOSE TO YOUR SON BACK IN OUR UNIVERSITY DAYS. I THINK OF JUSTIN AS MY BROTHER AND WOULD TRUST HIM WITH MY LIFE. HE IS A VERY KIND AND UNDERSTANDING MAN AND OF COURSE HE OWES IT ALL TO THE FINE UPBRINGING YOU WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR HIM. MIGHT I SAY THAT HE ALWAYS SPOKE HIGHLY OF YOU AND WOULD ALWAYS DEFEND YOUR HONOR WHENEVER THE RUFFIANS AT THE EDGE OF CAMPUS WOULD TAUNT US WITH EPITETHS.
    AS YOU CAN TELL I HAVE COME INTO A VERY LUCRATIVE POSITION AND WANTED TO SHARE THAT WITH MY BROTHER. HOWEVER I AM SURE HE WOULD NOT HESITATE TO SHARE THAT WITH IS OWN BELOVED MOTHER. I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO…AS THEY SAY IN THE VENACUALAR, ‘CUT YOU IN’. ALL I WOULD NEED TO ASK IS SOME OF YOUR BANKING DETAILS WHICH WILL BE HELD IN THE STRICTEST OF CONFIDENCE.
    IT WAS VERY NICE TO MAKE YOUR ACQUAINTANCE AFTER ALL OF THESE YEARS OF HEARING PLEASANT THINGS ABOUT YOU.
    GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
    JEFF
