However, it’s just my urgent need for a foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. Your contact is by courtesy of South African Export Promotion Council (SAEPC) in Johannesburg while I was searching for a Foreign Partner. I assured of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity when I prayed to God about this project, there is an account opened in this bank and since 2000 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not quickly remit this money out urgently from here it will be forfeited and transferred into Government treasury as unclaimed funds.

The owner of this account is Late Mr. Josef Pohl, from Germany who died along with his entire family in the plane Crash. on Monday, 31 July In 2000 and since then the fund has been in a suspense account awaiting any next of kin No one knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and the investigation proves to me as well that his company does not know anything about this account and the amount in the account at the moment is {US$28,000,000.00} Twenty Eight Million United States Dollars Only).

As the Funds is in United States Dollars I need a reliable foreign partner/account to transfer the money overseas thus I am contacting you.

I need your full co-operation to make this transaction work because the management of my bank is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information on this account, which I will give you if you indicate your interest. I hope you can be able to handle such amount in strict confidence because this opportunity will never come again in my life. I need reliable and truthful person in this business relationship because I don't want to make any mistake. I need your strong assurance and confidentiality. With my position now in the office I will be giving you all the information needed from the bank.

The bank will transfer this money to any reliable foreign account, with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing.
