Attention: The President/Ceo
Dear Sir,
Confidential business proposal
Having discussed with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the chambers of 
commerce and industry, I have the privilege of requesting for your assistance to transfer a huge 
sum of $3.500,000.00 (three million, five hundred thousand united states dollars) into your 
personal bank account. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract executed, commissioned 
and paid for about two years ago by a foreign contractor. This act was however intentional and 
since then the fund has been in a suspense account at Barclays bank in a West Africa country. All 
necessary documents will be issued in your own name as the contractor if this deal between us 
progresses. This business is legitimate in the sense that the contract was issued and was executed 
and the money was paid to the bank but we realized that we could not collect the money because it 
was deposited on a foreign contractors name but since then, we could not get in touch with him but 
the money is still lying unclaimed in our records.
We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to 
inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account not to arouse 
suspicion. that is why we require your humble assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 
70% for us, 25% for you and 5% for local and international expenses incurred during the transfer.
The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with a mining company. If you find this 
proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents from you to proceed with the 
A. Bank name and account details, address, telephone and fax numbers. Your private telephone and 
fax numbers is for a confidential and easy communication.
B. A letter-headed paper stamped and signed, this is for the contract process.
Alternatively we will supply you with the information of what to type into your letter-headed paper 
along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take 
us 20 working days to accomplish. Please dont bother to respond to this sender email but use the 
email below, I await your urgent reply .
Kind Regards,
Pius Kufo
