I LOVE GETTING THIS KIND OF JUNK MAIL IN MY INBOX
-
SUBJECT: Born Win

Dear Sir/Madam,

How are you today, I hope that all is well with you?. My name is Mr. Edwin Booker, I am the operational manager in account management section in charge of credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks here in South Africa. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank who perished in crash of Swissair Flight 111 with the 215 passengers on September 8, 1998.

There is an account opened in this bank since 1991 by this great late INDUSTRIALIST who died without a written or oral 'WILL' attached to the account. Since his death, I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the manager of his company.

The total amount involved is 116,000,000.00 USD.[One Hundred and Sixteen Million United States Dollar]. We wish to start the first transfer with $16,000,000.00 [Sixteen Million] and upon successful transaction without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining balance to your account.

I have secretly discussed this matter with the general manager of the bank who I must involve in order to have a smooth and a successful transfer of the fund to any foreign bank account, which you are going to nominate. On this note, I decided to seek for a reliable foreigner who will act as the foreign beneficiary of the fund from the deceased by providing his/her bank account where the fund will be ransferred it can be an empty account provided it is still active as no one has come up to be the next of kin.

The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than TEN YEARS without claim hence the money will be recalled to the government treasury as unclaimed after this long period of dormancy.

In view of this I got your contact through my personal search to see if you can assist by providing your safe bank account for the transfer or find a reliable person who will be capable of receiving such amount in his or her account. At the conclussion of the transfer 60% of the fund will be for me, I will give you 30% of the total transfer sum, 5% for charity both in Africa and in your country while the remaining 5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties might incur during the transfer process.

Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you detailed information about the transaction. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is 100% risk and trouble free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can be finalized within 7 to 9 banking days, after you apply to the bank as the beneficiary of the fund from the deceased.

When you receive this letter, kindly get back to me for more informations about this business.

I will wait to hear from you soon.
Respectfully yours,
Mr. Edwin Booker
