Dear Sir/Ma

With due regards, I take the liberty to contact you for an urgent business transaction which will 
be of immense benefit to all parties concerned. I am Mr David Viniar, the Chief Financial Officer 
of Goldman 

My committee has the responsibility for the recommendation and award of contracts and supplies for 
the Goldman Sachs global investment banking and securities firm. In the course of our assignment, 
we did over-inflate the contracts for some suppliesto the bank as a result of which the sum of USD 
+ACQ-25.8m (Twenty five million, Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only) is now outstanding. 
The original contractors who executed the jobs have since been fully paid off, 

leaving this outstanding sum. Unfortunately, we as bank officials cannot withdraw the money here 
We therefore need your kind assistance to transfer this outstanding sum of USD +ACQ-25.8m to your 
account anywhere very safe. We shall compensate you with 12+ACU- of the funds for your assistance after 
the transfer. We the officials here shall have 78+ACU- while 10+ACU- will be set aside for any incidental 
expenses.Please note that this transaction is absolutely risk-free on both sides since we are using 
our positions in the bank to facilitate it. All logistics has been carefully mapped out for a hitch 
free transaction. 

 We however demand that you keep the transaction to yourself only until the funds arrive in your 
You need to send us urgently the particulars of your Private or company bank account where the 
funds will be transferred. As soon as we receive this, we shall commence the process and it is 
expected to take 5 working days for the complete transfer to be effected. Send your response to my 
e-mail address above and include your private tel/fax 

number for ease of communication.
