Dear Prospective Partner,
Permit me to introduce myself my name is Mr.Boaz Mwalusamba a Zambian
citizen, I got your contact through the Zambian Chamber of Commerce and
Industry through a web based directory while searching for a foreign
partner to execute this project together. I am the close associate to an
undisclosed minister (for the purpose of confidentiality for now)in the
present political dispensation of my country. Due to the trust and
confidence reposed on me, he has mandated that I seek out a "Reliable and
Trustworthy" foreign partner who will help receive funds, the funds in
question is in safe deposit totaling US$5m (Five Million United States
American Dollars). This amount has to be lodged into a personal or company
bank account for commitment into any legitimate investment venture for a
pre-defined time frame. We cannot afford to have a direct relationship
with any major investment for now by virtue of our position in Government.
We definitely do not want to raise any eyebrows in the ministry as an
internal probe might jeopardize his office.
The fund came about by series of over invoiced contracts and gratification
by contractors who have had their contract entitlement covered by the
government. The fund is in safe deposit and free from any speculation.
However I have managed to push the money abroad through diplomatic
coverage to a Courier & Trust Company and it is presently in custody of an
affiliate/sister security company in Europe.
Please, be rest assured that this business relationship will bring a long
term and lasting relationship between us, before proceeding with this,
terms of agreement will be drawn stating clearly each level of involvement
and commitment in this program. I have the necessary documents backing the
deposit to facilitate claim from the deposit house.
The modality for the disbursement of funds is as follows:
(1).70% of the total to us
(2).30% to you
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for a smooth
actualization of the transaction within the next few working days of
commencement.Also be informed that we are conceeding so much of the funds
to you because we shall be providing you with all documents relating to
the consignments and also a power of attorney vesting you with the sole
power to act for and on our behalf.You will be reimbursed with all
expenses incured in the process of closing this deal such as cost of
transportation to the security firm and all.
For further details as to the workability of this transaction.please reach
me as soon as possible for further clarification.
Please, on receipt of this mail send me an email on
Thank you and God bless as I await your urgent response.
Yours Sincerely,
Mr.Boaz Mwalusamba
