Dear Sir/Madam, This proposal might come to you as a surprise, since it is from someone you do not know or have seen before, but based on faith, I had to contact you believing that you are reputable and as such you cannot run away with my own share of this money when concluded. I am MR. JAMES MBUBA the director and coordinator of the Finance Contract Department of Minerals and Energy with South Africa Government. The crux of this letter is that the finance / contract department of the DME deliberately over-inflated the contract values of various contract awarded.In the course of disbursement, I was able to track down the sum of US$35 Million as the over invoiced sum. This money is now floating in the DME domiciliary account with the South African Reserve Bank (SARB). I want to quickly transfer this fund to a safe nominated foreign account for possible investment abroad. We are not allowed as a matter of government policy to operate any foreign account because of our status as civil /public servants. Hence the needs to solicit for a partner abroad to enable me transfer this money into your bank account abroad. Upon your acceptance of this proposal, I will us to share the funds in the following sharing percentages 1. 40% for you as the account owner 2. 55% for me 3. 5% will stand for any expenses we might come up during the transfer process including all the international phone call cost. I be coming over to your country when the money is finally transferred into your designated bank, and I be relying on your advice as regards to investment after our mutual sharing based on the percentage agreed. Be informed that this transaction is100% risk free. Please get back to me as soon as you can for more details or delete this email message if you are not interested in my proposal. Yours Faithfully, MR. JAMES MBUBA E-Mail: email@example.com Tel: +27638451324
