Dear Sir,

I am the Director Bill Exchange/Payment Verification Department of a commercial bank in South Africa .I write this very important letter to you considering you are capable and kind enough to assist me in this understated business proposal. I am assured of your capability and reliability to champion this opportunity. In my department, we discovered an abandoned unclaimed sum of USD $9.2 million Dollars (Nine Million Two Hundred Thousand US Dollars) in account that belongs to one of our foreign customer billionaire businessman, Paul-Louis Halley, 69, who died along with his entire family in 07 December 2003 in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guide lines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that his supposed next of kin his wife Annik Jacqueline Halley, 63, died along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to go into the Reserve Bank's of South Africa treasury as unclaimed. The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after four years, the money will be transferred into the Bank's treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an indigene can not stand as next of kin to this family.

We agreed that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me and my other colleague. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. herefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the Bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private, telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted, The money will be paid in Draft or bank swift transfer. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or e-mail the text of the application.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter only through my Private Email for security reasons: ( richardthabo11@gmail.com ).

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours Sincerely,
Richard Thabo
Director Payment Verification Dept.





It's important to note that any real people and / or legitimate organizations whose actual names or other details appear in these scam e-mails have absolutely no connection with this scam!

Scammers never use their real names.
They frequently take on the identity of real people to help make themselves and their scam appear legitimate.

This is just a small sampling of the many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at 419BAITER headquarters. It is 100% pure B.S. Purity Guaranteed!

There are many different types of 419 scam (examples) but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary / commision, low-interest loan, lottery prize, bargain gold dust / diamonds, work visa, etc.) in return for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get you to willingly send them money.

If you receive one of these scam mails, simply delete it as you would any other spam mails.
