Request for Confidential Business Relationship
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. I am a high
placed official working with Department of Finance (& Economic
Affairs), in Cape Town South Africa. But presently I am on a contract
survey and awards in West Africa. I and two other colleagues are
currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can
use to transfer the sum of Forty Six Million U.S. dollars (46 Million
This fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign
contracts, through our private connections. The fund is presently
waiting to be remitted from ABSA bank here in South Africa to any
overseas beneficiary confirmed by us as associate/ receiver. By virtue
of our positions as civil servants in my country, we cannot acquire
this money in our names. Because as high placed civil servants, we are
not allowed by the civil service code of conduct to own or operate
bank accounts outside of our shores.
What I am requesting from you is:
(1) To be our silent partner and receive the funds as the sole
Benefactor to the contract amount which we shall secure all Legal
documentation to authenticate our claim.
(2) Provide a private telephone and fax number for easy Communication
under your control.
(3) FULL NAMES:
(4) Receive the funds as the beneficiary, take out your commission and
keep the rest of the money until I arrive there to meet you after the
transfer is completed. My proposal is that after you receive the
funds, it would be shared as follows: 40% to you as commission for
your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while
the remaining 60% belongs to me.
I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks
either to us or yourself. Please, give me your response immediately by
return mail through my alternate email: email@example.com
