company here in South Africa shortly before he died.
I require your assistance and partnership in transferring the funds out of
my country. You will be required to: -
(1) Assist in the transfer of the said sum.
(2) Advise on lucrative areas for subsequent investment.

I have all the information and guidance to enable you and I realize this
opportunity. Kindly reconfirm your full names and contact telephone number
for confirmation and for me to give you more information about this
transaction. Time is not in our favour; please establish secured
communication with me through my email address below.
