(CONFIDENTIAL PROPOSAL)







Dear Sir/Madam,



I am Mr. Louis Phoofolo, assistant Branch Manager, Standard Bank of South Africa (SBSA). In July 2010, one of my customer by the name of MR. SATOSHI SAKURA from Japan who was a consultant/contractor with the Federal Ministry of Mines and Power here in South Africa, made a numbered time fixed Deposit, valued at $11,500,000.00 (Eleven Million, Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) for twelve (12) calendar months in my Bank branch.



I decided to reach you because presently I am in desperate need of a trust worthy foreign person for this proposal.



Upon maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally I discovered from his contract employers that he is no longer on earth because he died with his entire family is Japan Tsunami disaster of 11th of March 2011.



The said fund is still in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. Now the fund is $12,200,000.00 (Twelve Million Two Hundred Thousand US Dollars) because of the accumulated interest.



In accordance with South Africa Government Law, at the expiration of 7 (seven) years, the money will be reverted back to the ownership of the Government of South Africa if nobody comes forward for the claim.



Consequently, I want to present you as the next of kin to this late customer; hence you are a foreigner like him and the $12,200,000.00 (Twelve Million Two Hundred Thousand US Dollars) will be transferred to your Bank account and after the successful transfer of the funds, the money will be shared in the ratio of 65% for me, 30% for you and 5% to cover our expenses after the deal.



There is no risk involved, as I will use my position as the assistant Branch Bank Manager to secure approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction within 7-working days. If this proposal interests you, let me know by sending me an email and I will send to you detailed Information on how this business would be successfully transacted.



Be informed that nobody knows about the secret of this fund except my self and I know how to cover the entire transaction.



Please include your private phone number for voice contact and reply me through this email: louisphoofolo@gmx.com



Looking forward to your urgent reply to enable me give you more details and you can as well give me a call.



Thanks,



Mr. Louis Phoofolo.
