URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL
After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office of the chambers
of commerce & industry here in
Johannesburg South Africa, I decided to contact you but I did not
disclose the intention to anyone else
because of the delicate nature of the project. I found your profile very
interesting and decided to reach
you directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a
business investment and transfer of
US$25,500,000.00(Twenty Five million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) to
your country within the next few
Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am a high
placed official working with
Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg. I and two
other colleagues are currently in
need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to transfer
this sum of money. But at this
moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable
business investment until I get your
response by email, please if you can take out a moment of your very busy
schedule today to respond back to
my private email below for more details and include your private
telephone number in your response which I
and my colleagues will highly appreciate. This fund accrued legitimately
to us as commission from foreign
contracts, through our private connections.
The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the 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. On the
other hand, it is not safe for us to keep the money here due to unstable
political environment. I have
been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues, to look for an
overseas silent partner who could work
with us to facilitate transfer of this fund for our mutual benefit,
Hence the reason for this email.
My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as
follows: (1) 15% to you as
commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the
transfer, while the remaining 85%
belongs to me and two colleagues. You will be free to take out your
commission immediately after the money
hits your account in your country. Since our objective is to invest the
money in a foreign country, it
would be appreciated if you could also help us with advices and
direction on investing into profitable
ventures in your country.
However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to
further assist us with investing the
money, we can end our cooperation after you make available to me our
part of the money. The transaction,
although discreet, is legitimate and the money will be transferred
successfully with all necessary back-up
official documents showing the legitimate source/origin of fund.
The transfer will be finalize within a period not longer than two weeks
as soon as we reach an agreement
and you furnish me with a suitable response indicating your interest for
processing the transfer. 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 us or yourself. Please,
give me your response immediately by returning this mail through my
alternative email address.
Mr. Franklin Zakele.
