URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL / PARTNERSHIP Dear Sir/Madam. My name is Mr. George Williams Mudonille; a senior government official in the Department of Public works and housing of the Republic of South Africa and the chairman of the board in charge of the contracts award execution and supervision of all contracts in the Ministry of works and Housing. In 2015, I personally monitored and supervised the awarded contracts for the supply of building materials and construction of ultra modern shopping malls, low cost housing units, airports maintenance and Stadiums to in-proof the standard of leaving in this country. In the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Natal and Gauteng provinces here in South Africa. My colleague and I are serving in the board deliberately inflated and over invoiced the contract sum, leaving an excess of US$30, 000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars Only). At the completion of the contract, the real contract sum was paid to the original contractors, leaving the excess, which we reported to the Government that it belonged to the sub-contractor that handled part of the original contract. But the company we submitted as the beneficiary was a non-existing foreign company, which was a purported attempt by us to divert the money for our private use. I do not intend to mince words with you, I have to tell you the truth; this is a deal but completely risk-free and genuine because the contract has been perfectly and genuinely executed and completed. It depends on whether you are interested or not. Right now this amount is due for payment and is floating in the treasury not attached to anyone/company. We are only two people who know the origin of this fund. But we cannot claim it by ourselves because we are civil servants therefore we are looking for a trustworthy foreign company / individual whose name we can use to claim the money for our mutual benefit. This is strictly a business deal, but it is completely risk-free and secure because we will use our official positions to source all the necessary approvals, official documents and certificates that will back up the fund to reflect that you/your company genuinely executed and completed the contract. All necessary arrangements have been put in place in all the relevant departments for immediate approval of this payment. For your co-operation, we have agreed to offer you 2.5% of the entire amount on conclusion of the transaction while 75% will be for us. Please if you are interested in this proposal, I want you to respond immediately through my personal email & telephone number stated below for further information and directives. This transaction is expected to be completed within 14 working days and is highly confidential and discreet. Thank you for your co-operation. Your urgent reply is awaited. Best Regards, Mr. George Williams Mudonille. Private Mobile: +27 73 629 1622. Private Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Ministry of works and Housing S A)
