I know that this proposal may come to you as a surprise especially having to come from someone you have not met before, but I would like you to co-operate with me so that this US$35M will be released and transferred into your account.
My name is Mr. Benjamin Walker the CEO / chairman of contract award committee of Department of minerals and energy company LTD, republic of South Africa. It is my profound intention to contact you for this very important and highly confidential transaction for the transfer of US$35,000, 000.00 into your account. the (US$35,000,000.00) was the overestimated balance from the contracts awarded to both foreign and local contractors the real contract value was US$120 million united states dollars, but it was over estimated to the tune of (US$155,000, 000,00) (one hundred and fifty five million united states dollars only).
The contract has been successfully executed by the contractors and their contract sum of (US$120M) has been paid to them, leaving our overestimated balance of (US$35,000, 000. 00) United States dollars still pending at the bank. Right now, we are left with this over estimated balance of (US$35M) which is still floating at the escrow account in the South African reserve bank awaiting final payment to any reliable foreign bank account you may provide.
I am therefore asking you to co-operate with me so that the fund will be released and transferred into your account. if you are interested in this my proposal, reply me so that we can negotiate your percentage before we can proceed however, when the fund is transferred into your account over there, I shall obtain visa and travel with my family over there for my own share of this money, I plead with you on one issue, whether you are interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to anyone else. I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to yourself or Me. I will appreciate if you could contact me through my direct email address: (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me on this number +27-73-725-1921.
My best regards,
Mr. Benjamin Walker
