Dear Friend,   
First, I must apologize in advance if the contents of this email do not meet with your approval, I 
humbly crave your indulgence. 
My name is Joseph Vilakazi, I am a South African, I am also an accountant by profession. I recently 
retired as the accountant to the South African 2010 World Cup Local Organizing Committee. In my 
capacity as the accountant, I came across alot of foreign busineesmen seeking contracts for the 
building of stadia and residential housing units for the participants of the coming world cup. 
I was courted by these foreign businessmen to help them secure contracts. I did not in anyway 
compromise my integrity or position. I only rendered help when it was convinient for me.  I amassed 
alot of goodwill and since my retirement, many contractors have approached me with the aims of 
showing appreciation for the favour I rendered to them while in office. 
These appreciations have been in form of money.  I need a proxy to collect this money for me, hence 
this proposal to you. This transaction does not require any financial commitment of any sort from 
you. All you need to do is to collect this fund on our behalf andI will reward you handsomely.   
I can be reached via email for more details <>. Like I stated earlier, 
this transaction does not require any financial commitment from you and also note that I did not 
solict for this fund, hence this does not constitute a bribe. Should this you are interested in 
this proposal, please furnish me with the following information to enable me commence the paperwork 
for the successful execution of this project.   
I await your response if you are interested.   
Thank you.   
Yours faithfully,  
Joseph Vilakazi.
