From:Mr Arnold Mbuli;
Good day My Friend,
I write, asking for your indulgence in re-profiling funds to tune of Twelve  Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$12.8m) which we  want kept safely overseas under your supervision.
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 overseas.
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 taxation.
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 e-mail  correspondence. You can also contact me at

I am available via email to discuss further with you. I am looking forward to hearing from you immediately. 

Arnold Mbuli.
