Dear Sir,
I am Zulu Mgomeni, an assistant accountant with the South Africa Department of Housing in 
Johannesburg, South Africa. I am currently in the Netherlands on a trade mission and would soon be 
going back to South Africa. It is an agreement between me and my chief accountant to contact 
somebody in this business transaction. 
Sometime ago, contracts were awarded to foreign firms by the contract award committee of my 
department. All contracts have since been executed, and full contract values have been paid to all 
contractors concerned. My colleague (the chief accountant) has discovered a total amount of Six 
five hundred thousand US Dollars (US$6.5 million) not claimed. This money now belongs to nobody or 
firm since all contractors have been paid in full. 
We now desire to transfer this money (US$6.5 million) into any account which we expect you to 
for us. For providing the account where we shall transfer the money into, you will receive 30% of 
money and 65% will be for me and my chief accountant. The balance 5% will be set aside as pay-back 
for any expenses or bills that may be incurred during the course of this transaction.

It does not matter whether or not you have a company that executes contracts. We have strong and 
reliable connections and contacts, and we have no doubt that the full amount will be released if we 
the necessary foreign partner from your country to assist us.

After the successful transfer, I will immediately come over to your country and maybe have our 
share put 
into investment as you may advise us. We shall through our same connections, withdraw all documents 
used. The security of this transaction is 100%. There is no risk on both sides. Please keep this 
transaction as strictly confidential and please do not discuss this with anybody as it may 
jeopardize our 
chances. Contact me immediately through the above fax number or email address, whether or not you 
are interested. If you are not, it will enable me seek for another partner. Send to me your direct 
confidential telephone number for us to have first hand discussion on the modalities.

I await your prompt response.

Thank you.

Zulu Mgomeni
Dept. of Housing
Johannesburg, South Africa.
