Dear Sir,

With great pleasure I am writing this proposal on behalf of my 
partners. A member of our government trade delegation to your country 
gave your impeccable profile to me. Hence I have decided to seek your 
cooperation, due to the sensitivity of this transaction and my 
commitment as a civil servant.

There is a programme currently on, in the department where I work, 
inviting holders with proof of government indebtedness which stands at 
an envisaged accruing interest of US$1.05 billion. To submit same to 
enable their claims go through payment process. Some of these debts 
have been redeemed in their principal component leaving behind accrued 
interest portion unpaid.

Within the Department of Energy & Natural Resources, where I work, we 
have been able to track an accrued interest bill of Eighteen Million 
Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$18.200, 000.00) which we 
have in principle gotten an approval to remit overseas. This we can do 
by changing of beneficiary and other forms of documentation with 
application for claim to reflect the payment and approval to be secured 
on your behalf.

Our constraint is to be able to source an honest and trustworthy 
individual, to whom we can remit these funds and act as trustee pending 
our visit, since our period of disengagement from the civil service is 

We are presently affected by the South Africa civil service code of 
conduct laws that prohibits civil servants from operating private 
foreign accounts. I have the authority of my partners in office to 
propose that should you be willing to assist us in this transaction, 
your share as compensation will be US$3.6M (20%) while my colleagues 
and I receive US$13.15m (70%)and the balance of US$ 1.45M(10%) for 
taxes and other miscellaneous expenses

This transaction is 100% risk free provided you treat it with utmost 
secrecy and confidentiality. Furthermore, your area of specialization 
is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction.

Kindly contact me on the above email to indicate your willingness in 
assisting us. Thank you and God Bless,

My sincere Regards
Victor Zuma Themba
