CAPITEC BANK SOUTH AFRICA
This message might meet you in utmost surprise; however, it's just my urgent need for a foreign partner
that made me to contact you for this transaction. I am a banker by profession with the (RAND
MERCHANT BANK) South Africa and currently holding a post as the Director of Auditing and Accounting
unit of the bank. I have the opportunity of transferring the left over funds ($7.5million) originally owned
by one of my bank clients Mr. Andrew Stapleton who died along with his entire family on 31 July 2000 in
a plane crash. You can confirm genuinely the deceased‘s death by logging into this web site:
Meanwhile the whole arrangements and directives needed to put claim over this fund as the bona-fide
next of kin to the deceased will be forward to you upon your acceptance, information will be relayed to
you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this
great business opportunity.
Hence, I am inviting you for a business deal where this money can be shared between us in the ratio of
60% for me and 30% for you, while 10% will be mapped out for expenses if you agree to my proposal.
Please, you have been advised to keep this as top secret as I am still in service and intend to retire from
active service after I conclude this deal with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in the
bank until you confirm that the money is in your account and ask me to come down to your country for
subsequent sharing of the fund according to the percentages previously indicated above and for further
investment, either in your country or any other country you may advice me to invest in. All other
necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me as soon as
possible stating your willingness to assist and be fully involved in this deal.
Furthermore please contact me through my phone +27 813 263 470

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 /
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
willingly send them money.
