    Advice for Proof of Funds

    I'm sitting with a dilemma and want to know if anyone has some pearls of wisdom to share. I received an ITA on 13 Jan and am now in the process of putting together all of the documents and I've hit a snag in the Proof of Funds department. This is a bit of a long story. To explain: In October, I had 99% of the proof of funds and the rest was coming in in time for the application from my earnings. 2/3 was in a Unit trust account and the rest was in a 24hr Call account. So all perfectly acceptable by the CIC, to my understanding. Then the Rand took that massive blow, and the amount you needed just went up. Now with all my sums, I'm more or less 35k down from the total I once needed. So, in order to still qualify, I have to up the amount of money I had really quickly. I have the money I need in a few places, but I either have to call in a loan repayment (my parents owe me a fairly large sum of money), or I have to do a cash deposit. Either way, there is going to a lump sum suddenly entering my account. Now, I know CIC doesn't like lump sums, but is there any way that I can get around this? I was reading up everywhere and apparently if the Proof of Funds is accompanied by an Affidavit stating where the lump sum came from, then it's okay? I've also read up about a Letter of Explanation? Could you somehow explain it in there where it all comes from? If so what documents would need to accompany the letter? Has anyone had this problem with a lump sum being unavoidable and if so, what did you do to get around it? This is partially directed to people who sold items they owned to close the new, sudden gap that has appeared. I have things I can sell fairly quickly, but how do you prove you sold them and that is where the money is coming from?
