FROM: MR NELSON NGOBENI
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK
(A.D.B), SOUTH AFRICA.
I know that this business proposal will come to you as surprise since
we don’t know each other before, but that doesn’t mean that you will
not be of a great help to me, but firstly let me introduce myself, I
am Mr. NELSON NGOBENI, the CHIEF AUDITOR OF AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK
(A.D.B) SOUTH AFRICA. There is an account opened in this bank in 1982
and since 1992 nobody has operated on this account again but all this
came to light after an internal auditing that I conducted last year
November 2008 by going through some old files in the records, I
discovered that if I do not remit this money out immediately it would
be forfeited for no reason.
The owner of this account is MR PAT MEHRABAN IRANI, a foreigner and a
miner at Kruger Gold Co, a geologist by profession and he died since
1990.No other person knows about 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 amount involved is (USD13.86M) THIRTEEN MILLION EIGHT
HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS.
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be
approved to a local bank here, but can only approved to any foreign
account because the money is in US DOLLARS and the former owner of the
account was MR PAT MEHRABAN IRANI.We will sign an agreement, but I
assure you that it is real and a genuine business. Please reply
urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take immediately.
I will fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and other
investments as soon as the money is transferred to any bank account
you will provide.
Please include your complete names and telephone numbers in your
reply. I will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we
receive this money leaving no trace to any place. We will influence to
effect the legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your
account with appropriate clearance forms of the Ministries and foreign
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 30% of the total
sum, 65% will be for me, and meanwhile 5% will be for expenses both
parties might have incurred during the process of transferring.
I look forward to your earliest reply. Contact me through my private
