I am Dr:Gill Cazumba, Director of Project, South Africa Ministry of Mining & Energy. I am making

parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the nature of this transaction. Within

Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$14,500,000.) which we want to transfer 
abroad with the assistance and cooperation of a foreign company/individual to receive the said fund 
on our behalf or a reliable foreign non-company account to receive such funds.

More so, we are handicapped in the circumstances, as the South AfricaCivil Service Code of Conduct 
does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction.

This amount $14.5m represents the balance of the total contract value executed on behalf of my 
Department by a foreign contracting firm,  which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately. 
Though the actual contract cost have been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance in 
the tune of the said amount which we have in principles gotten approval to remit by Key tested 
Telegraphic Transfer (K.T.T) to any foreign bank account you will provide by filing in an 
application through the Ministry of Justice here in South Africa for the transfer of rights and 
privileges of the former contractor to you.

I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should you be willing to assist us in 
the transaction, your share of the sum will be 20% of the$14.5 million, 70% for us and 5% for 
taxation and miscellaneous expenses and while balance 5% will go to charity

The business itself is 100%safe, on your part provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and 
confidentiality. Also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of 
this transaction.I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint 
me.Endeavor to contact me immediately through my e-mail to confirm whether or not you are 
interested in this deal. If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partners to 
carryout this deal.

I want to assure you that my partners and myself are in a position to make the payment of this 
claim possible provided you can give us a very strong Assurance and guarantee that our share will 
be secured and please, remember to treat this matter very confidential, because we will not 
comprehend with any form of exposure as we are still in active Government Service.

Once again, remember that time is of great essence in this transaction wait in anticipation of your 
fullest co-operation.
