Attention: Good Friend,

I am Mr. Ed Grondel the chief accountant of First National Bank of South Africa (FNB) a division of FirstRand Bank limited South Africa I am making this contact with you based on the need for an individual/company who is willing to assist me with a solution to a money transfer.
First and foremost, I apologized using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to Confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium. In unfolding this proposal, I want to count on you, as a respected and honest person to handle this transaction with sincerity, trust and confidentiality. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the nature of this transaction.

There is an account opened in this bank in 1997 and till 2003 nobody has operated on this account again after going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is MR.SHEU YUANG DONG, a foreigner, and a miner at Kruger Gold Company, a Geologist by profession and he died since February 16, 1998. No other person knows this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the money involved is USD25,000,000.00 (Twenty Five Million United Dollars Only).
I want us to first transfer USD10 Million from this money into your safe overseas account before the rest and this is to avoid any breach of law to both Countries.

Please View this website: This site is the Taiwan air crash in which MR.SHEU YUANG DONG was found dead in February 16, 1998. I am seeking your assistance as a foreigner, since as civil servant i am not allowed to operate foreign accounts. Should you be willing to assist in this transaction your share as compensation will be USD10,000,000.00 (40%), while I will receive USD15,000.000.00 (60%).
The business is completely safe and secure, provided you treat it with utmost confidentiality. It does not matter also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction.I have reposed confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.

Kindly notify me by sending your secured mobile phone and fax numbers for further details upon your acceptance of this proposal.

Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.


Mr.ED Grondel.

    • Rick,
      If there were no replies – ever – they would get tired of trying and switch to some other way to rip off the rich and stupid West.

      But in this guy’s case, I think he needs to go back to his witch doctor, and ask for new “magic powder” (reference to the link).
