Project description: Sir, The National Port Authority of South Africa operates the Thirteen Port Terminals all over the Country. I'm with the Tender's Committee, supervising ongoing and the closure of completed projects as awarded by the government. My reason for writing you is because we seek a partner to assist in reprofiling funds derived from an already concluded project which we presided over from inception to closure and have favorably adjusted in our favor. The project was over-valued at R155,700 000.00 (17.3 million united states dollars); the primary aspects of the project was the building of two rubble-mound breakwaters; bulk excavations to form the harbor inner basin; construction of land and sea reclamation areas and construction of concrete quay walls which will provide five berths. We would like you to participate in our bid to reprofile these funds under your supervision pending when we make adequate arrangements to meet you after the finalization of this arrangement. We propose that you be compensated with 20% of the funds if this is agreeable with you; however we will need to draw up a memorandum of understanding that will form a binding framework for us all to work with and stand by. If you feel this may be of interest to you, write me back on email@example.com with your direct telephone so I can forward you further information which will give you a clear overview of this exciting opportunity. Regards Jacob Mamello Director, Tenders Committee
