From: Mr.: June Williamss Govan Mbeki House, 240 Justice Mohammed Street, Sunnyside, Pretoria, 0002 South Africa 2/3/2015 Tel: +27740437178 Fax: +27865148253 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Confidential Business Proposal ATTN: CEO/ MANAGING DIRECTOR Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the South Africa of Commerce and Industry, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $47,500,000.00 (Forty Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed, commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in our Government Suspend Account with the (RESERVE BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA). We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 30% for you. This transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Department of Works & Housing South Africa. If you find this proposal acceptable, please urgently send the following information: 1. YOUR BANKER’S NAME ADDRESSES PHONE AND FAX. 2. YOUR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER AND ROUTING/ SWIFT NUMBER (IF ANY), 3. YOUR PRIVATE PHONE AND FAX NUMBERS FOR EASY COMMUNICATION. 4. YOUR NAME AND HOME ADDRESS. Note: Please kindly hurry up and make those details available via the above Email address; so that we will detail you more on how this deal will take place, we thank you for your best interest and understanding into this deal. You can call me for more information. Please reply urgently. Best regards Mr.: June Williamss
