SUBJECT: URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL
I am Barrister Steve Richardson of Richardson & Associates; I am the legal adviser to Engineer Faik Aziz, a Turkish National who used to be a contractor with (ANGLO GOLD MINES) Mafikeng. Gold Mining/ Exploration Corporation in South Africa hereinafter shall be referred to as my client. I got your contact from the Foreign Trade Department of the Turkish Embassy here in South Africa during my search for a reliable person overseas to assist me in this confidential business transaction.
On February 25, 2009 my client Mr. Faik Aziz lost his life in a Turkish Airline Plane Crash while coming to land in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. Since then I have made several personal enquiries from the embassy to locate any of my client’s extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.
After several unsuccessful attempts, I now decided to inform you, hence I contacted you. I have sent you this letter to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit were lodged, particularly the Amalgamated Bank of South Africa (ABSA), where the deceased had an account valued at about US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million United States Dollars only). The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated though there are persons of same nationals here in South Africa non of them is a direct relative with the deceased and no one had an idea of this deposit.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over a period of time, I am seeking your consent to be presented as next of kin to the deceased hence all the necessary document presently in the name of my late client will be changed in your favour to file for the claim and for the fact that the bank has indicated their willingness to approve this fund to anybody that I will present as a relative to Mr. FAIK AZIZ, this amount valued at US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million United States Dollars only) will be transferred into your designated account and I shall proceed down to your country on confirmation of the fund in your account to discuss with you on how to invest the money, meanwhile you will be required here (South Africa) to endorse your signature on some of the documents as the next of kin to the deceased once the fund has been approved by the bank.
I shall revalidate and notarize all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim the bank may require, this is a risk free transaction considering the arrangement being put in place with senior management of the bank for a smooth conclusion of this transaction without any hitch. I have resolved to give you 25% (US$4, 500, 00.00) for your assistance in this transaction, 5% (US$900,000.00) will be set aside for any expenses that will be incurred by both parties during the course of this transaction and the remaining 70% (US$12,600,000.00) will be for me. I guarantee you this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
