Dear Sir/Madam,
After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office of the chambers of commerce & industry here 
in Johannesburg South Africa, I decided to contact you but I did not disclose the intention to 
anyone else because of the delicate nature of the project. I found your profile very interesting 
and decided to reach you directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a 
business investment and transfer of US$65,000,000.00(sixty-five million) to your country within the 
next few days.
Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am a high placed official working 
with Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg. I and two other colleagues are 
currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to transfer this sum of 
money. But at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable business 
investment until I get your response by email, please if you can take out a moment of your very 
busy schedule today to respond back to my private email below for more details and include your 
private telephone number in your response  which I and my colleagues will highly appreciate.
This fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, through our private 
The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here in South Africa to any overseas 
beneficiary confirmed by us as associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil servants in 
my country, we cannot acquire this money in our names.  Because as high placed civil servants, we 
are not allowed by the civil service code of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of our 
shores. On the other hand, it is not safe for us to keep the money here due to unstable political 
environment. I have been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues, to look for an overseas 
silent partner who could work with us to facilitate transfer of this fund for our mutual benefit, 
hence the reason for this email.
My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as follows: (1) 15% to you as 
commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 
85% belongs to me and two colleagues. You will be free to take out your commission immediately 
after the money hits your account in your country. Since our objective is to invest the money in a 
foreign country, it would be appreciated if you could also help us with advices and direction on 
investing into profitable ventures in your country.
However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to further assist us with investing 
the money, we can end our cooperation after you make available to me our part of the money. The 
transaction, although discreet, is legitimate and the money will be transferred successfully with 
all necessary back-up official documents showing the legitimate source/origin of fund. The transfer 
will be effected within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach an agreement and you 
furnish me with a suitable response indicating your interest for processing the transfer. I plead 
with you on one issue, whether you are interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to 
any one else. I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to us or 
yourself. Please, give me your response immediately by returning this mail through my alternative 
email address.
Yours Faithfully,
Mr. Sipho Mohau.
