Good day,

I write, asking for your indulgence in re-profiling funds to tune of Fourteen 
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$14.5m) which we want 
kept safely overseas under your supervision.

In other words, we would like you to receive the said funds on our behalf. 
The Funds were derived over time from a project awarded to a foreign firm 
by my Department, and presently the actual contract cost have been paid to 
the original project executors, leaving the balance in the tune of the said 
amount which we have in principle obtained approval to remit overseas.

Currently, I work as a Projects Manager at the Department of Minerals & Energy 
here in Pretoria. I have the authority and approval of my Partners involved in 
this transaction to negotiate a suitable compensation for your participation 
and I propose 25% percent, while we also propose that we receive 70 percent 
and 5% percent be earmarked for purposes of taxation.

This endeavor has a minimal risk factor on your part provided you treat it 
with the utmost discretion. You are advised to reach me through my Private 
email address: ( or via my Direct telephone 
number +27-78-597-1848 for further clarifications. Please send your phone, 
fax number and your full name/address.

I kindly wait to hear from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Engr. James Williams

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.
