Your Urgent Attention,
I know this mail will come to you as a surprise,please do not be skeptical as it is for good purpose. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail private as I'm contacting you independently and not on behalf of my ministry.

I am a senior staff at the Department of Mineral Resources in South Africa; also a member of Government Tenders Committee on foreign contracts. I am currently in need of a foreign partner whose identity can be used to transfer some huge sum of money out of South Africa for onward overseas investment. This money emanated from an over-invoiced contract payment which was awarded to a foreign contractor in the year 2012 under my supervision and approval. The total amount involved in this deal is US$32,000,000.00 to be shared between us if you are interested to work with me.
What I am proposing to you in this letter is to present you as an associate to the contractor who executed the said contract, so that the outstanding over invoiced amount of US$32,000,000.00 will be released to you. I will guide and direct you on every step required to achieve this objective. All paper work and documentations have been perfected to this effect and subsequent documentation will be filed in your name for the approval of funds transfer release to your account.
If you are familiar with government awarding contracts to foreigners mostly in Africa, you will understand what I am talking about here because in most cases tenders are over invoiced to benefit those at the high position; If such over-invoiced funds are not claimed it will be re-assigned to the state treasury and nobody benefits from this and it will be a wasted opportunity.
This is a lifetime guaranteed opportunity for us if we can make use of it as presented.
I am sending you this mail not without a measure of fear or concern as to the consequences should you decide to turn me down, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this opportunity. Please get back to me as soon as possible if you are interested in my proposal so that I will give you full and comprehensive details of this proposed project.
You can reach me on my private email above and kindly avail me of your telephone number where I can reach you as soon as I receive your reply.     
Best Regards,
Johansson Van Zyl.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
