Dear Sir,

This letter might come to you as a surprise however, there is no need to
worry, as we are using the only secured and confidential medium available
to seek for foreign assistance/partnership in a business transaction. What
is more important is that, the mentioned transaction will prove to be of
mutual benefit to both parties involved. I am presently in the Netherlands
on an official assignment, reachable on the above telephone and fax

I am Dr. David Pasela, a native of Cape Town in South Africa and I am an
Executive Accountant with the South Africa Department of Mining & Natural
Resources.Be informed that a member of the South Africa Export Promotion
Council (SEPC) 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 an Executive Accountant and with the cooperation of four other top
officials, we have in our possession an overdue payment bills totaling
Eighteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars (US$18,500,000.00)
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 (US$18.5m) 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 Telegraphic Transfer (T.T) to any foreign bank account you will
provide by filing in an application through the Justice Ministry here in
South Africa 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

this transaction by way of providing the required account in receiving
these funds, your share of the entire sum will be 30% amounting to
Us$5.55Million of the US$18.5Million, 60% amounting to US$11.1Million for
us and 10% amounting to US$1.85Million will beused to settle taxation and
other miscellaneous expenses in the course of transferring the funds to
your account.The Transaction itself is 100% safe, on your part provided
you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. 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.

Endeavor to contact me immediately through my secured email address  whether or not you are interested in this deal.If you
are not, it will enable me contact another Foreign partner with similar
recommendation to carry out this deal. I want to assure you that myself
and my partners 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.

NOTE: I know there may be scams and junk mails flying here and there on
the Internet but certainly, this is not one. Please do not fail to
understand that in spite of all that, opportunities of this kind still
abound. If you have ever wished or prayed for something good to come your
way, now I urge you to take this message seriously and with an open mind.
You could never know. This may be an answer to your prayers.So please give
it a benefit of doubt, and with good faith and trust join me and I am
assuring you now that you will never be disappointed. Please reply
urgently and furnish me with your TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS for further

entertain any questions concerning the clarity of this transaction.
