As a result of over-invoicing masterminded by the concerned officials, who have been drafted to represent final payment for a contract that has been executed to the corporation some years back. The money is now floating in the suspense account of Federal Reserve Bank of South  Africa awaiting claim by Foreign Partner which status we now want you to  assume.

Now is the optimum period to consummate this transaction.Following the presidential directive to pay all contractors personal/company‘s account.In my last meeting with the officials  involved, it was unanimously agreed that 25% of the total sum will be given to you. 70% will be for my colleague,and me.While 5% will be used toreimburse the expenses that may be incurred in the process of the transfer.
