Attn: Chairman / C.e.o,
I do foresee the surprise this letter will bring to you as it comes from a stranger. But rest assured as it comes with best of intentions however your address was courtesy of a business journal at the World Trade Center here in Johannesburg but after due consideration from your profile, I became aware and assured of your credibility of handling this trust and my future thus after my humble decision to solicit your understanding and co-operation in this transaction as it will be beneficial to all of us involved. My name is Mr. Gugu Plamini, a senior Government official in the department of works and housing, Republic of South Africa . In 2003, a Committee headed by me awarded to supervise some government contracts under the Ministry of works and housing the construction of Ultra modern shopping complexes and low cost housing units in some parts of South Africa . However the contract sum was inflated by me and two other colleagues to the tune of US$65,500,000.00 (Sixty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars).
Right now the original contractors have been paid leaving the excess of US$65,500,000.00, which we told the Government belonged to the subcontractor who handled out part of the project. Thus we need a foreign Company either existing or not or an individual to Help us claim the money. I and two of my Collogues are the only people that know the origin of this money which is due for payment we cannot claim this money since we are Indigenes and so we need a reliable foreign national like you who will provide a foreign account where this Money will be transferred into and we will there after share the money with whom ever that provided the account this is strictly a business deal that is 100% risk free as we are going to provide all approvals legitimizing the contract as being executed by you and copies of these documents sent to you.
All arrangements have been put in place for immediate approval of this payment as soon as substantive foreign account is provided for your co-operation we have agreed to offer you 25% Of the total sum after the transaction 70% will be for me and my colleagues which we would like to invest in your country, while 5% will be used to settle any expenses which will be incurred in the course of this transaction. Should you be interested please respond through any of the contact details to enable me guide you on what to do next we hope that this transaction will be concluded within four (4) weeks on the receipt of acceptance of handling this deal.
Thanks for your anticipated co-operation.
Mr. Gugu Plamini.
