                             BUSINESS/INVESTMENT ASSISTANCE
Dear Sir,
I am the principal accountant with the department of transport and aviation in South Africa and have decided to send forth this proposal to you after due and thorough deliberation, I have in my possession US$12M (TWELVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS).
The funds which are in the government suspense account of a recent Contract awarded to a foreign firm for supplies of spare parts and maintenance equipment for my department. Meanwhile, the original contractor has been fully paid. I also wish to inform you that I am not alone in this deal but I have been chosen to act as spokesperson for the group.
We wish to get these funds out of the country if possible with your assistance. This is wholly possible as in the pursuant of and the terms of my country agreement under the international monetary fund (IMF) London club and Paris club debt servicing program to pay out all outstanding debts owed to foreign firms. I now seek your assistance for
the easy transfer of the over invoiced amount (surplus) as the beneficiary.
For obvious reason I cannot present myself as the beneficiary of the funds as I am a government civil servant and thereby is dangerous for me to operate offshore accounts (foreign accounts) and would thereby jeopardize my chances. And also in recognition of your personal executive profile and investment opportunities available in your country. At this juncture I want you to present your firm as the original beneficiary of the above fund to enable me put claim on the above sum.
I will use my office and that of my colleagues who are selected for this very purpose to facilitate a hitch free (risk free) payment because all the necessary arrangements have been made.
Finally, I count on your sense of confidentiality, as it is my desire that you keep this proposal to yourself. After the transfer, you will get 20% of the total money,75% will be for me and my colleagues, while 5% will be for the expenses that will incurred in the process of the transfer.
Please send your reply to this e-mail address:
or you can reach me on my private Tel number: +27-83-885-0112 for us to proceed immediately on this transaction. Also do not forget to include your private fax and phone number for easier communication.
Best regards,
