Dear Sir/Madam,

  I am Dr. Robert Mube, 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 us.
I am presently in the Netherlands on an official assignment,
reachable on the above telephone and fax number.

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 be
used 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 us.

  I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation. I
am available to entertain any questions concerning the
clarity of this transaction.l can be reached on my private
phone and fax numbers above.

Yours faithfully,
Dr. Robert Mube
