I am Dr. Duncan Martins, a native of Cape Town in South Africa and I am one of the Director of 
Project Implementation with the South Africa Department of Mining & Natural Resources. I am 
presently on an oversea trip in Brussels Belgium.

First and foremost, I apologize using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this 
magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium. Be informed 
that a member of the South Africa Export Promotion Council (GEPC) who was at the Government 
delegation to your country during a trade exhibition gave your enviable
credentials/particulars to me.
 I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described 
Hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the 
nature of this transaction.

Within the Department of Mining & Natural Resources where I work as one of the Directors and with 
the cooperation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as overdue payment bills 
totalling Sixteen Million, Six Hundred Thousand U. S. Dollars of ($16,600,000.00.) which we want to 
transfer abroad with the assistance and cooperation 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 circumstances, as the South Africa Civil Service Code of Conduct 
does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction.This 
amount $16.6 million represents the balance of the total contract value
executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials 
over-invoiced deliberately.

Though the actual contract cost have been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance in 
the Tune of the said amount which we have in principles gotten approval to remit by Key tested 
Telegraphic Transfer(K.T.T) to any foreign bank account you will provide by filing in an 
application through the Justice Ministry here in S.A for the transfer of rights and privileges of 
the former contractor to you.I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should 
you be willing to assist us in the transaction, your share of the sum will be 30% of the $16.6 
million, 60% for us and 10% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses. The business itself is 100% 
safe on your part provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. This entire 
transaction can be completed within 3 weeks if all works well with us.

Also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this 
transaction. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.
Endeavour to contact me immediately through my direct Tel, numbers or this email 
address; whether or not you are interested in this deal.

If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal I want 
to assure you that my partners and myself are in a position to make the payment of this claim 
possible provided you can give us a very strong Assurance and guarantee that our share will be 
secured and please remember to treat this matter as very confidential matter, because we

will not comprehend with any form of exposure as we are still in active Government Service and 
remember once again that time is of the essence in this business.
I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.

Yours faithfully,
Dr. Duncan Martins
