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 to keep 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 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 email
for further clarifications.

I am available for further clarification via email or fax: +2711 507 6324.

I kindly wait to hear from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr. James Nkonor
