Request for Confidential Business Relationship

First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. I am a 
placed official working with Department of Finance (& Economic 
in Cape Town South Africa. I and two other colleagues are currently 
need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to 
the sum of Twenty Six Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. dollars. 
fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, 
through our private connections.

The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from ABSA bank here in 
South Africa to any overseas beneficiary confirmed by us as 
associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil servants in 
country, we cannot acquire this money in our names. Because as high 
placed civil servants, we are not allowed by the civil service code 
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 

What I am requesting from you is: (1) to be our silent partner and 
receive the funds as the sole benefactor to the contract amount which 
we shall secure all legal documentation to authenticate our claim. 
Provide a private telephone and fax number for easy communication 
your control .(3)Receive the funds as the beneficiary, take out your 
commission and keep the rest of the money until I arrive there to 
you after the transfer is completed.

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 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 for an additional 

However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to 
further assist us with investing the money, we can end our 
after you make available to us our part of the money.

The transaction, although discrete, is legitimate and the money will 
be transferred successful with all necessary back-up official 
showing legitimate source/origin of fund. The transfer will be 
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 return mail through my
alternate email:

Yours Faithfully,

Themba Nkosi.
