First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction and itís in the
light of our search for a trustworthy individual to work with us on a very
important project, that we decided using this medium to reach you for a
transaction/business of this magnitude, as itís due to the confidentiality
and prompt access reposed on it.

Am a Civil Servant working with Department of Minerals & Energy, Cape Town
South Africa . I and two other colleagues are currently in need of a
silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to transfer the sum of
Twenty Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars. This fund accrued
legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, through our
private connections.

The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from Amalgamated Bank of
South Africa (A.B.S.A) here in South Africa to any overseas beneficiary
confirmed by us as associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil
servants in my country, we cannot acquire this money in our names. 
Because as high placed civil servants, we are not allowed by the civil
service code of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of our
shores. On the other hand, it is not safe for us to keep the money here
due to unstable political environment.

I have been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues, to look for an
overseas silent partner who could work with us to facilitate transfer of
this fund for our mutual benefit, hence the reason for this email. What I
am requesting from you is: (1) to be our silent partner and receive the
funds as the sole benefactor to the contract amount which we shall secure
all legal documentation to authenticate our claim. (2) Provide a private
telephone and fax number for easy communication under your control.
(3)Receive the funds as the beneficiary, take out your commission and keep
the rest of the money until I arrive there to meet you after the transfer
is completed.

My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as
follows: (1) 15% to you as commission for your co-operation and assistance
in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 85% belongs to me and
two colleagues. You will be free to take out your commission immediately
after the money hits your country. Since our objective is to invest the
money in a foreign country, it would be appreciated if you could also help
us with advices and direction on investing into profitable/lucrative
ventures in your country for an additional 3%.

However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to further
assist us with investing the money, we can end our cooperation after you
make available to us our part of the money.

The transaction, although discrete, is legitimate and the money will be
transferred successful with all necessary back-up official documents
showing legitimate source/origin of fund. The transfer will be affected
within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach an agreement
and you furnish me with a suitable response indicating your interest for
processing the transfer. I plead with you on one issue, whether you are
interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to any one else.

I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either
to yourself or us. Please, give me your response immediately by return
mail through my alternate email:

Yours Faithfully,
Napoleon Ninth(Dr.)
South Africa.
