Dear Sir/Madam

I know that this will come to you as a surprise,since we don’t know each other before. I am The 
Former Director-General in South Africa under the department of mineral and energy and after due 
I decided to contact you for your assistance in standing as benefactor to the sum of US$30.5Million 
(Thirty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)
I am currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity I can use to transfer the said 
sum. This fund was accrued legitimately to me as commission from foreign contracts with Department 
of Mining & Energy through my private connections.

Our percentage would be shared as follows

1) 20% for you as commission for facilitating the transfer
2) 75% belongs to me
3) 5% for tax and all other related expenses that may be incurred.

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

Yours Truly,
Mzolisi diliza
