Dear Sir, I write to seek your cooperation as a link, foreign adviser and your assistance to enable me and my family own properties and invest in a stable economy of your country. I apologize if this mail does not suit your personal or business ethics. I receive very encouraging information about you and how trustworthy you are. I am delighted with such useful information. I am interested in partnership investment programmed with yourself/corporation. Am a native of Cape Town in South-Africa. Presently I am the Senior Chief Executive Accountant with the South-Africa Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. Within the Department of Energy where I work as an Executive Senior Accountant and with the Co-operation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as over due payment bills worth millions of dollars, which we want to transfer abroad with the assistance and co-operation of a foreign Company/Individual to receive the said fund on our behalf or a reliable foreign Non-company account to receive such funds. More so, we are handicapped in the circumstance, as the South Africa civil Service Code of conduct does not allow us to operate off-shore account, and our earning is less than $1300 (rand equivalent of our local currency) and the strict stipulations of the Bureau of conduct guidelines and regulations for public/civil servants hence you are important in the whole transaction. This amount represents the balance of the contract value executed on behalf of my department by a Foreign Contracting Firm, which we the official over-invoiced deliberately. . I will also appreciate you contact me once you receive this Mail via my E-Mail account to enable me give you more details on my Modus Oparandi of getting the funds across to you hitch free. Positive response should be accompanied with telephone and fax numbers so I can reach you immediately also. I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.
