Please allow me to intimate you with a business transaction that would
benefit both of us. My name is Michel Toure, I am the director of the
project and engineering division of SODECI (Société de distribution d'eau
de Cote d'Ivoire). I will want you to assist me in the claim and transfer
of Seven Million Euros.

This amount was realized from over-invoiced contract amount awarded by us
in 2007 to expatriate companies. The Contract's Amount was deliberately
overestimated to read more than the actual cost of the project thus
leaving a surplus of Seven Million Euros. However, as a staff of SODECI I
cannot claim this money without a foreign partner who will act as the
contract beneficiary and as such, entitled to receive the funds as
payment. This is why I am contacting you to allow this money to be
transferred into your account and to be my custodian for the money.

If you are willing to assist me in this transaction please get back to me
at my private email: ( so I can give you further
details about this transaction. I am willing to give you 25% of the total
amount after the transfer, the rest will be held and released to me when I
get to your country. I look forward to hear from you.
