I hereby write for your assistance and partnership by providing a convenient bank account were the funds can be transferred in your names/company as the beneficiary becuase as a civil servant here in South Africa I am not permitted to own a foreign accounts due to civil service code of conduct in South Africa.

YOUR ROLE: All I need from you is to STAND AS THE BENEFICIARY OF THE SAID FUNDS AND PROVIDE A CONVENIENT BANK ACCOUNT FOR THE TRANSFER of the above quoted sum which has already been deposited in a suspense bank account with the Reserve Bank of South Africa where the final crediting is expected to be carried out . Meanwhile we shall secure various legaldocumentation that will back up our claims i your name/company and the apex bank will transfer the funds into your bank account as the approved beneficiary.
