Urgent confirmation needed

From: Lucky Khumalo -

Good day,

Do not be surprised about receiving this confidential proposal from
somebody you do not know. It is as a result of the urgency and nature of
the business that made me contact you in this manner. I am Mr. Lucky
Khumalo, an attorney from Durban, South Africa and a personal attorney to
late Mr. John Cuthbertson, (hereinafter referred to as my "client") an
expatriate and an oil/mining contractor who used to work in my country
back in Africa as an Engineering Consultant with South African mining
Corporation. On the 31st of January 2000, my client died from an air crash
aboard Alaska Airline flight 261 that crashed into the Pacific Ocean on
January 31, 2000
My client used to be a close friend of my late father who also died four
years ago. Shortly, before my client's death, he had instructed me to
prepare his WILL but without a named beneficiary yet. He had already
signed the WILL and was contemplating on making his pet dog the
beneficiary sinc

The reason for contacting you is to assist me urgently in repatriating the
sum of Twenty five million six hundred and U.S. Dollars (US$25,600,000)
left behind by my client before his death. This amount of money is kept in
safe custody with a security/finance company operating between Africa and
Europe. The security company has issued me a notice to provide the
next-of- kin of my client or have the money declared unserviceable and
returned to the South African government.

I cannot claim this money myself because of my position as the Attorney to
the deceased and the Security company is aware of this situation. Since I
have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives for five years
now, I seek your consent for a confidential co-operation with me so that I
can present you as the next-of-kin to my client – Mr. John
Cuthbertson for the money to be paid to you as the beneficiary. Note that
this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide you with
expert legal services, documentations and transaction codes that will
guarantee the successful execution of this deal with the security/finance
company. All I require is your honesty and serious co-operation to enable
us see the deal through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under
a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the
law. I wish to point out that after the claims, I would want 20% of this
money to be shared among charity organizations, while the remaining 80%
is shared equal.

You will agree with me that it is a better judgment for us to claim this
money and put into profitable/peaceful use than allowing it to be
confiscated and divided amongst the corrupt government in South Africa. If
you are capable of handling this transaction, get back to me with your
full names and telephone numbers to enable us discuss and proceed

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Lucky Khumalo
