Request for Confidential Business Relationship 
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. I am a 
placed official working with Department of State for Finance & 
Affairs, in Banjul, The Gambia, West Africa. Myself and two other 
colleagues are currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose 
account we can use to transfer the sum of Eighteen Million Five 
Thousand U.S. dollars. This fund accrued legitimately to us as 
commission from foreign contracts, though our private connections. 
The fund is presently waiting to be remitted through an offshore 
manager to any overseas beneficiary confirmed by us as 
associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil servants in 
my country, we cannot acquire this money in our names. Because as 
high placed civil servants,we are not allowed by the civil service 
of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of our shores. On 
the other hand, it is not safe for us to keep the money here due to 
unstable political environment. I have been mandated as a matter of 
trust by my colleagues, to look for an overseas silent partner who 
could work with us to facilitate transfer of this fund through his or 
her account for mutual benefit, hence the reason for this email. 
What I am requesting from you is: (1) To be our silent partner and 
receive the funds in your account in trust. (2) Provide a bank 
under your control to which the funds will be remitted.(3)Receive the 
funds in your account, take out your commission and keep the rest of 
the money until I arrive there to meet you after the transfer is 
My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared 
follows: (1) 20% to you as commission for your co-operation and 
assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 80% 
belongs to me and two colleagues. You will be free to take out your 
commission immediately after the money hits your account. Since our 
objective is to invest the money in a foreign country, it would be 
appreciated if you could also help us with advices and direction on 
investing into profitable ventures in your country. However, this 
optional, and should it not be convenient for you to further assist 
with investing the money, we can end our cooperation after you make 
available to me our part of the money. 
The transaction, although discrete, is legitimate and the money will 
be transferred to your account with all necessary back-up official 
documents showing legitimate source/origin of fund. The transfer will 
be effected to your account within a period not longer than two weeks 
as soon as we reach an agreement and you furnish me with a suitable 
bank account for processing the transfer. 
I plead with you on one issue, whether you are interested or not, 
kindly do not expose this information to any one else. I confirm that 
the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to 
or yourself. 
Please, give me your response immediately by return mail. 
Yours Faithfully 
Mr.Tony Camato
