Savimbi, Director Project Implementation with South African Anglo-Gold Corporation in Johannesburg and a member of the Contract Tenders Board (CTB) of the above corporation. Your esteemed address was reliably introduced to me from the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry in my search for a reliable, individual/company who can handle a strictly confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a reasonable sum of money to a foreign account. The amount of money involved is US$35,000,000.00 (THIRTY FIVE MILLION, UNITED STATES DOLLARS). This money has already been extracted from various contracts awarded by this corporation, as a result of over-invoicing masterminded by the concerned officials involved, this has been drafted to represent the final payment for a contract that has been executed to this corporation some years back, the money is now floating in the suspense account of the Reserve Bank of South Africa awaiting claim by any foreign partner which status we now want you to resume. Now is the optimum period to consummate this fund, following the presidential directive to all parastatal to settle all outstanding debts owed to both local and foreign contractors? In my last meeting with the Officials involved, it was unanimously agreed that 30% of the total sum will be given to you, 60% will be for us while 10% will be use to reimburse the expenses that will be incurred in the processing of this transfer. I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free as we 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 account within 72 hours after your claim has been approved. However, I would want to believe that you are honest enough and will not raise any misgiving attitude in any aspect of the transaction, more importantly, that you will keep this transaction very confidential so as not to tarnish the confidence reposed on these officials by the Government of South Africa. If this proposal is of interest to you, then kindly contact me with above information’s immediately. Please treat this information as confidential. Best Regards, Mr. Antonio. L.
