business proposal, we want you
to assist us receive the sum of Twenty  
eight million,
six hundred thousand united state bills(us28.6m) into 
your account. This fund resulted from an ver-invoiced
contract awarded 
by us  under the budget allocation
to my ministry and the bill was 
approved for  payment
by the concerned ministries. The contract was

arrive your
