Dear Sir,
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. I am a highly
placed official working with Department of Finance & Economic Affairs, in
Johannesburg South Africa . I am currently in need of a silent foreign
partner whose identity l can use to transfer the sum of USD$7,500,000(Seven
Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). These funds accrued
legitimately as commission from foreign contracts as over invoiced payments.
The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here in South
Africa to any overseas beneficiary confirmed by me as associate/receiver. By
virtue of my positions as civil servant in my country, l cannot acquire this
money on my name. Because as high placed civil servants, l am not allowed by
the civil service code of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of
our shores. On the other hand, it is not safe for me to keep the money here
due to unstable political environment.
Based on the above, l hereby solicit your to cooperation to work with me to
facilitate the transfer of these funds to your oversea account for our mutual
benefit, hence the reason for this email.
For us to initiate this project, l require the following from you
1.  To be my silent partner and receive the funds as the sole beneficiary to
the contract amount which l shall secure all legal documentation to
authenticate our claim.
2.  Provide a private telephone and fax number for easy communication under
your control. 3. Receive the funds as the beneficiary; take out your
commission and keep the rest of the money until I visit your country to meet
you after the transfer is completed.

I am willing to compensate you with 35% of the entire sum for your
co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while 5% will be
mapped out for any expenses and the balance of 60% will be for me.
Please, l will appreciate it if you could treat this transaction in strict
confidence. As much as it is 100% legitimate and risk free it will serve our
respective interest that we keep it between ourselves so that we can mutually
actualize it.

Finally, l thank you for finding the time to read my proposal, and will
appreciate it if you could express you decision to either work with me or
not. Whatever decision you will take in this regard will be taken in good
Sincerely Yours,
Mr. Matthew Kana.
