Please May you permit me to send you this business proposal for your consideration.
First and foremost, I would like to use this opportunity to introduce my self to you as the Senior accountant of Central Bank of Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe and have acquired huge amount of money during the interception of Power and Leadership of President Fradrique De Menezes by the Rebel Leader on the 16th of July, 2003,although the Government of President Fradrique De Menezes was later restored back by the United Nations Peace Keeping Force and African Union one week after the seized power by the Rebel Leader.
However, I am having problem of moving this funds out of the Country with my full involvement as I have no right under my capacity to have these funds transferred out of the country knowing too well that as a Civil Servant, I am not entitled to own more than $20,000.00 as my personal funds and above all, the Government of Sao Tome and Principe has banned all Government Officials from operating a foreign account without the approval from the Office of the Prime Minister.
To this effect, I am soliciting for your assistance to collaborate with me by fronting you as the beneficiary of this funds so as to have this funds ($8.5million) moved to your account under your custody. I will guide and advise you on how to go about this transaction to become a reality if you are interested to help me out. Prior to your full acceptance to strike this deal with me, I will personally offer you 30% of this $8..5million
May I have your comments base on my offer and if possible reply to this email this is my most private email address, firstname.lastname@example.org send me your contact telephone number for us to talk over this issue on telephone.
