From: peteranderson022@hotmail.com

Subject: RE: Greetings

Dear ****,

Thanks for your response; this is to acknowledge receipt of your mail in view of my business proposal. I do hope you are willing to cooperate with me in executing this transaction of mutual benefit. Anyway, I will have to explain the details of the transaction to your understanding before we take further actions. You have to trust me because without trust in a business of this nature we can't succeed. I want you to know that the beneficiary documents will be put in your names and you will be the bonefide next of kin to the said funds.

I work with Capitec Finance Bank here in South Africa. We had a client named Mr. Roger Ian Wright. I was directly assigned to him as his relationship manager/financial adviser. He made several deposits (fixed) with Capitec F inance Bank amounting to ($19,800.000.00 Million Dollars) for which I was the portfolio manager. Upon maturity, several notices where sent to him but we never got a response until we discovered that he died along with his entire immediate family members in an plane crash. I have to use my private email for confidentiality and to protect my job as i am still a working officer in my Bank.

Please read more about, Mr. Roger Ian Wright a US businessman, founder of a Sao Paulo-based investment company. On the 22nd of May 2009, Mr. Roger Ian Wright, his wife and his two children all died in a King Air B350 plane crash seaside resort town of Trancoso, in the state of Bahia. You can find below the links pertaining to this accident. I want you to know that this is a confidential deal i want you and i to carry out as i am still a working officer in my bank and you also have a good name to protect too. Please click on the link to read more.

Since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because to the best of my knowledge apart from his wife (Now late too) no other family member who is aware of the existence of neither the account nor the funds. As his relationship manager/financial adviser every of the activities regarding the locating of the possible next of kin revolves round my desk. I therefore decided to look for a reliable foreign partner to work with since our affiliated banking regulation requires that unclaimed funds after a period of years will be paid into the states reserve and forfeited to Government.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that i would like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to the late Mr. Roger Ian Wright so you will be able to receive his funds from our affiliated Bank in the United Kingdom for easy transfer of the funds to you in your country. ALL MODALITIES HAS BEEN WORKED OUT FOR A SUCCESSFUL TRANSACTION FROM MY SIDE!! The Strategy is to use my influence to name as the beneficiary of the fund so that you will have to contact our affiliated Bank for the funds to be transfer to you. I have contacts in the South African department of Justice who can facilitate preparation of necessary legal documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Late Mr. Roger Ian Wright. So that should not be a source of concern to you.

Now, that I have your Full Names, i will need you to send to me your residential address and your contact telephone number so that, I will have to contact the person at the Justice Department, who will handle the title documents to commence his job. As soon as this is done a letter of probate will be issued in your favor for making you the Administrator of the late Mr. Roger Ian Wright Estate and with this you can make application for the release of the funds. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt legal methods in applying for the release of the funds to you. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.

Like i said above, the beneficiary document will be perfected in your name as all formalities will be handled from my end as the percentage sharing will be 45% for me, 45% for you and 10%for the motherless babies and less privileged people. You can call me on the below number if you have any questions regarding this deal and my email.

I wait to hear from you shortly to know if you agree on my teams and condition concerning this deal.

Kind Regards,

Mr. Peter Anderson.

    If you do not reply to the first email you get a second from the scammers, which claims:

    "Your assistance in this proposal in the intent of a deceased since this is my second email to you, For more details reply with your phone number for acceptance to ( petersanderson11@sbcglobal.net)
    Regards,
    Anderson"

    The email came from: Brown_Simon @durham.edu.on.ca
    I did a bit of research, and found that Simon Brown does work at:
    Beau Valley Public School
    230 Marigold Avenue,
    Oshawa, ON
    L1G 3G3 Canada

    Phone: 905-576-1938
    Fax: 905-576-7519

    I would suggest that anyone living in that area should either warm the poor chap that his identity is being used by scammers, or he himself is a scammer? Not sure which???
    The email for Beau Valley Public School is also being used to send these emails - NOTE: beauvalley_ps @durham.edu.on.ca (ending in "@edu.on.ca") ~

    Received this E-mail;

    Business Proposal
    This business proposal is confidential and I request that it be treated as such. It is specifically directed to you and I must solicit
    your Confidentiality on it. I assure you that I am contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit to us.
    I am Aaron Gillard, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to a deceased client of my chambers who shares
    a similar surname with you, who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country, but died in a car crash with his family
    on the 16th of March 2006. The accident occurred in East London.
    My late client a former oil well Pumper working with Marathon Oil Corporation here in the United Kingdom and had Left
    behind a deposit of Ten Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only (£10.8million) with a bank. After the
    death of my client, the Bank contacted me, as his attorney to provide his Next of kin who should inherit his fortune; this
    according to them is their policy in sure circumstances.
    Since the death of my client, I have written several letters to the embassy with intent to locate any of his extended relatives
    whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail. I had to
    inform the Bank about my fruitless effort in locating my late client close relative or His next of kin.
    The board of directors of the Bank just adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of
    this money within the next 15 official working days or forfeit the money as an abandoned funds. The Bank had planned to
    invoke the abandoned property Act of the Bank to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given me. Also I have
    received official letters in the last two days suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in
    line with existing laws of the institution.
    Well I have reasons very professional and I can use a legal means to present a next of kin of my deceased client. This is legally
    possible and would be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I decided to search for a credible person and
    finding that you bear a similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with your consent, present you to the
    "Trustee" as my late client's family member so as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of
    my client.
    I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you are of the same nationality and you bear a similar last name with my late
    client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity. I have all vital documents that would confer you the
    legal right to make this claim and would make them available to you so that the proceeds of this bank account valued at
    £10.8million can be paid to you before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge amount is
    lodged.
    I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client but think it is unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the government of
    this country or some financial institution. My aim is to retrieve these funds and let it be claimed by the deceased family
    Lineage, etc. for this I seek your assistance since I have been unable to locate the relatives for the past 7 years now
    I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name giving you the
    advantage, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us can share the money, 60% to me and
    40% to you. I know there might be other persons out there with the same surname as my late client, but after a little check my
    instinct told me to contact you. Can I trust you on this? I shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back
    up your claim.
    I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach ~
