Good day,

I write, asking for your indulgence in re-profiling funds to tune of
Twelve Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$12.8m)

In other words, we would like you to receive the said funds on our behalf.

The Funds were derived over time from a project awarded to a foreign firm
by my Department, and presently the actual contract cost have been paid to
the original project executors, leaving the balance in the tune of the
said amount which we have in principle obtained approval to remit

Kindly pardon the use of a medium as informal as this for reaching out to
you to make a request of great importance to us.

Currently, I work as a Director of Projects at The Department of Minerals
& Energy here in Pretoria. I have the authority and approval of my
partners involved in this transaction to negotiate a suitable compensation
for your participation and I propose 22.2 percent, while we also propose
that we receive 46.6 percent and 31.2 percent be earmarked for purposes of

This endeavor has a minimal risk factor on your part provided you treat it
with the utmost discretion. You are advised to reach me through email
