Department Of Minerals And Energy,
Pretoria, South Africa.
It is my great pleasure to write you this letter on behalf of my colleagues.
Although, I do not know you in person, I got your contact via personal search on
the internet Don't be worried because I am contacting you in good faith., I
have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of
the deal hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it
confidential because of the nature of this business. Within the Department of
Minerals & Energy where I work as a Director of Audit and Project
Implementation and with the co-operation of two other top officials, we have in
our possession an overdue payment in US funds.
The said funds represent certain percentage of the total contract value
executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting firm, which we the
officials over-invoiced to the amount of US$26.500, 000.00 (Twenty-Six Million
Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars).Though the actual contract cost has been paid
to the original contractor, leaving the excess balance unclaimed.
Since the present elected Government is determined to pay foreign contractors
all debts owed, so as to maintain good relationship with foreign governments and
non-government agencies, we included our bills for approvals with the Department
of Finance and the South Africa Reserve Bank ( SARB).We are seeking your
assistance to front as beneficiary of the unclaimed funds, since we are not
allowed to operate foreign accounts details and change of beneficiary
information upon application for claim to reflect payment and approvals will be
secured on behalf of you/your Company.
I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should you be
willing to assist us in this transaction your share as compensation will be
US$6.625m (25%), while my colleagues and I receive US$17.225m (65%) and the
balance of US$2.650m (10%) for taxation and miscellaneous expenses incurred.
The business is completely safe and secure, provided you treat it with Utmost
confidentiality. 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.
I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint us.
Thanks for your co-operation.
