Attention: To Whom it may Concern.

It is indeed my pleasure to write you this letter,
which I believe will be a surprise to you as we have
never met before, and I am deeply sorry if I have
inane manners disturbed your privacy. Please forgive
this unusual manner of contacting you, but this
particular letter is of exceptional and very private
nature. There is absolutely going to be a great
doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this
email, coupled with the fact that, so many
individuals have taken possession of the Internet to
facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it
extremely difficult for genuine and legitimate
business class persons to get attention and
recognition. There is no way for me to know whether
I will be properly understood, but it is my duty to
write and reach out to you.


Well, I am Engineer Lambert MacDonald and i am the
director of Project in South African Ministry of
Minerals & Energy Resources. I am writing following
an opportunity in my office that will be of immense
benefit to both of us.

To get straight to the point, My colleagues I
recently influence the award of a contract to a
foreign company based on a gentleman agreement that
a certain percentage of the total contract value
will be given to us. The foreign contracting firm
has executed the contract and the contract amount
paid less $20,500,000.00USD (Twenty million five
hundred thousand united State dollars). Which is the
percentage we agreed to be given to us and the
present Government is decided to pay foreign
contractors all owed debts, in other to maintain
piece/good relationship with foreign governments and
non-government agencies; also we intend to include
our bills for approvals with the Department of
Now deal is successful and we are stocked now on how
to proceed with this transaction and this is where
you will be involved. We decided to get a foreigner
invovled to help us out. We need your assistance to
enable us claim the money, since as civil servant we
are not allowed to operate foreign accounts. Details
shall be worked out in line with this to enable us
claim the money without the slightest problem. 

Understand that upon my receipt of your acceptance
mail, I will send details that will enable us secure
the fund for our selves; the money will be paid into
your account for us to share in the ratio of 25% for
you and (75%) for us, since we 3 in this deal and
all shares will go equally.
There is no risk at all, I assured that with my
position as Director here; I will guide you
successful toward the final execution of this
transaction with all necessary legal documents that
can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I
require is your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality
and Trust to enable us see this transaction

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest
assured that this transaction would be most
profitable for both of us and other 2 members
involved, but all depends on your honest and
accountant ability. 

I wait to reciprocate your response.

Thanks and regards.

Dr. Lambert MacDonald.
