KINDLY READ THE ATTACHMENT LETTER AND GET BACK TO ME?
My name is Mr. James Mahu. I am a staff of a government ministry in South Africa responsible for awarding and execution of contracts. I have in my possession an outstanding contract payment of USD20, 000,000 Million. These funds represent certain percentage of the total contract value executed on behalf of a Department by a foreign contracting firm, which was officially over-invoiced to the amount of (USD20, 000,000).
Though the actual contract cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving the excess balance unclaimed. So I am in search of an individual who will assist me to transfer the outstanding amount of the total fund and subsequently we invest same in lucrative ventures in his country.
You will receive this fund as an applied contractor. For your support and partnership, please reply to negotiate the fee or the percentage you will be paid when the funds arrive in your account overseas. I have the surety to secure approvals with the concerned Departments. You must however note that this transaction, with regard to my disposition to continue with you is subject to these terms:
Firstly, our conviction of your transparency; meaning you will not ‘sit’ on the funds when it arrives in your account, Secondly, that you treat this transaction with confidentiality and also provide an account for which you have absolute control.
It does not matter whether you/your Company does contract projects, as a transfer of powers will be secured in favor of you/your Company.
Also, your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction as what we need is a foreign individual or firm we will present and do the paperwork to clear the funds. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.
I am looking forward to doing business with you and please email your response to me through my private email address below, I need a serious and matured person not a time waster please.
Note that 50% of the fund is yours and the other 50% is mine we have to sign agreement to this term for full trust and confidence.
Kindly provide me with your full names and telephone number so I can reach you for more details and further deliberations.
