May I have the pleasure of introducing myself. I am Mr. Adams Williams, a
senior staff and chairman of Tender Board Committee on the award of contracts in
Department of Works and Housing here in South Africa. I got your contact E-mail
address from an international directory on lawyers and advisers on international
business in my quest to find a trustworthy person on whom I can repose
confidence for colossal international money transaction. My aim of sending this
"business proposal" to you is to solicit for your assistance and
co-operation to transfer some huge amount of money into your account overseas.
Therefore, this communication should be held in high confidence.
My colleague and I in the Department of Works and Land Affairs wish to transfer
into a safe and secured account overseas, the sum of US$32.5Million (Thirty Two
Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which is over-invoiced
amount from contracts we awarded to foreign contractors who have been duly paid
on completion of their various contracts. This money right now is in a coded
account in the Reserve Bank of South Africa. However, by virtue of our position
as civil servants, we cannot acquire these funds in our names or in the names of
companies here in South Africa.
I was therefore asked by my colleagues on trust and sincerity to look for a
reliable international outfit partner abroad into whose account the sum of
US$32.5 Million will be transferred. We have agreed on the following sharing
ratio if you accept our proposal. Seventy percent (70%) for us and Thirty
percent (30%) for you, the Account owner.
My choice of you for this transaction is basically hanged on your field and
profession, hence this business proposal. If you are interested in this deal, I
will require some informationĘs from you in order to affect the transfer of
the money. Please, be informed that we shall commence processing of claims of
payment once we receive your interest from you, and the funds will get into your
account within Five (5) working days by Telegraphic Transfer (T.T).
Note that this transaction is 100% risk free.
Mr. Adams Williams.
