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. <br> <br> 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. <br> <br> 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. <br> <br> 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 near. <br> <br> 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 <br> <br> 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. <br> <br> Kindly contact me on the above email to indicate your willingness in assisting us. Thank you and God Bless, <br> <br> My sincere Regards <br> Victor Zuma Themba<SPAN contentEditable=false style="DISPLAY: inline-block"></SPAN></div> <div class="AOLPromoFooter"> <hr style="margin-top:10px;" /> <a href="http://pr.atwola.com/promoclk/100122638x1081283466x1074645346/aol?redir=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eaim%2Ecom%2Ffun%2Fmail%2F" target="_blank"><b>Check Out the new free AIM(R) Mail</b></a> -- 2 GB of storage and industry-leading spam and email virus protection.<br /> </div> </BODY></HTML> ----------MB_8C95B9C8ED4EC84_12BC_13D65_WEBMAIL-DC12.sysops.aol.com--
