I am Mr. Rolland Makhele Director, project Implementation of L.O.C South Africa and a member of the 
Contract Tenders Board (CTB) of the above corporation.

Your esteemed address was reliably introduced to me at the South Africa Chamber of Commerce and 
Industry in my search for a reliable individual or company who can handle a strictly confidential 
transaction. This involves the transfer of a reasonable sum of money to a foreign account.

This amount of money is total sum ofUS$23,500,000.00 (Twenty Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand 
United States Dollars), already extracted from various contracts awarded by my corporation from the 
World Cup Projects. As a result of over invoicing masterminded by me and my concerned officials, 
has been drafted to represent final payment for a contract that has been executed to the 
corporation some years back. The money is now floating in the suspense account of Federal Reserve 
Bank of South Africa awaiting claim by Foreign Contractor which status we now want you to assume.

Now is the optimum period to consummate this transaction. Following the presidential directive to 
all parastatals to settle all outstanding debts owed to both local and foreign contractors before 
the world Cup Kick off. 
In my last meeting with the officials involved, it was unanimously agreed that 35% of the total sum 
will be given to you if you will be able to assist. 60% will be for my colleague, and me. While 5% 
will he used to reimburse the expenses that may be incurred in the processing of the transfer.

I assure you the transaction is 100% risk free as we have concluded every arrangement to protect 
the interest of every one involved. Likewise, all modalities for the successful transfer of this 
I have been working out with the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Federal Reserve Bank of South 
Africa to facilitate the remittance of this money to your designated account.

However. I would want to believe that you are honest enough and will not raise any misgiving 
attitude in any aspect of the transaction, more importantly; you will keep this transaction very 
confidential so as not to tarnish the confidence reposed on these officials by the Government of 
South Africa.

lf this business proposal is of interest to you, then kindly contact me via telephone or e-mail .

Meanwhile, your immediate response will be highly appreciated. Please treat this information as 

Best regards, 

Mr. Rolland Makhele
