MR. VICTOR TOKOZA
The contract was deliberately over invoiced to the tune of US$9.5M.US Dollars. The over-invoicing was a deal to benefit from the project. The original foreign contractor had completed the contract and has been paid. I now want to transfer this money to overseas bank account.
I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free as I have concluded every arrangement to protect the interest of everyone involved, Likewise all modalities for the successful transfer of this fund have been worked out with Ministry of finance and the Reserve Bank of South Africa to facilitate the remittance of this fund to your designated bank account within 72 hours after your claim has been approved.
For your assistance, you will be offered 30% of the total sum.
As i receive your positive response, i will make a formal application for the transfer of the funds to overseas bank account. It does not matter whether or not your company does projects of this nature described here. The assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted it to other companies. More often than not, big trading companies or firms of unrelated fields win major contracts and subcontracts to more specialized firms for execution of such contracts.
Do not feel it strange about this business proposal, in
Please contact me immediately through my email:email@example.com
If you are interested to be part of this transaction
Mr. Victor Tokoza
