FROM: MR Taylor Gill
Chairman of Tender Board
Committee on the award of
Contracts in Department of Works
and Housing, Republic of South Africa.
Good day Dear Friend
May I have the pleasure of introducing myself? I am MR Taylor Gill, a senior staff and chairman of Tender Board Committee on the award of contracts in Department of Works and Housing here in South Africa.
I got your contact E-mail address from an international directory on lawyers and advisers on international business in my quest to find a trustworthy person on whom I can repose confidence for colossal international money transaction. My aim of sending this "business proposal" to you is to solicit for your assistance and co-operation to transfer some huge amount of money into your account overseas. Therefore, this communication should be held in high confidence.
My colleague and I in the Department of Works and Land Affairs wish to transfer into a safe and secured account overseas, the sum of THIRTY TWO MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$32.5M) which is over-invoiced amount from contracts we awarded to foreign contractors during 2010 FIFA world Cup who have been duly paid on completion of their various contracts. This money right now is in a coded account in the Reserve Bank of South Africa.
However, by virtue of our position as civil servants, we cannot acquire these funds in our names or in the names of companies here in South Africa. I was therefore asked by my colleagues on trust and sincerity to look for a reliable international outfit partner abroad into whose account the sum ofUS$32.5 Million will be transferred. We have agreed on the following sharing ratio if you accept our proposal. 1. Seventy percent (70%) for us and Thirty percent (30%) for you, the Account owner.
My choice of you for this transaction is basically hanged on your field and profession, hence this business proposal. If you are interested in this deal, I will require some information from you in order to affect the transfer of the money. Please, be informed that we shall commence processing of claims of payment once we receive your interest, and the funds will get into your account within Five (5) working days by Telegraphic Transfer (T.T). Note that this transaction is 100% risk free. Do acknowledge the receipt of this letter above and forward your reply to this E-mail email@example.com
