Here is the content of my previous email to you, i am Mr. Paul Mashabane, Director Project Implementation/Anglo-Gold Ashanti Johannesburg South African and also a member of Central Tenders Board (CTB) of the above corporation.
Your esteemed contact was reliably introduced to me at the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry in my search for a reliable individual/company who can handle a strictly confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a reasonable sum of money to a foreign account. The amount of money involve is US$50, 000, 000, 00 (FIFTYMILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) only.
The money was extracted from various contracts awarded by this corporation, as a result of over-invoicing masterminded by the concerned officials; this has been drafted to represent the final payment for a contract that has been executed some years back. The money is now floating in a
suspense account in the South Africa Reserve Bank awaiting claim by foreign contractor whose status we now want you to assume.
We belief that now is the best time to transfer the fund, following the presidential directive to all ministries to settle all outstanding debts owed to local and foreign contractors, In my last meeting with the officials involve, it was unanimously agreed that 25% of the total sum will be given to you, 70% will be for us while 5% will be use to reimburse any expenses that will be incurred in the process of the transfer. What we need from you at the moment is to reconfirm your direct telephone number and we shall contact you ASAP.
I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free as we have concluded every arrangement to protect the interest of everyone involved, likewise all modalities for the successful transfer of this money have been worked out with Department of Finance and the South Africa Reserve Bank to facilitate the remittance of this fund to your designated account within 72 hours after your claim has been approved.
However, I believe that you are honest enough and will not raise any misgiving attitude in any aspect of the transaction, more importantly, that you will keep this transaction confidential so as not to
tarnish the confidence reposed on these officials by the government of South Africa.
Mr. Paul Mashabane.
