Your Urgent Attention,

How are you?hope great;I know this message might come as a surprise,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 am 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.

 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.

kindly avail me of your telephone number where I can reach you as soon as I receive your consent.      

Best Regards,
