Dear Sir,    

I am Dr. Frank Mabaso,a native of 
Cape Town in
South Africa and I am an Executive Accountant with the
South Africa Department of Mining & Natural Resources.
First and 
foremost,I apologized using this medium 
to reach you for a 
transaction/business of this magnitude,
but this is due to 
confidentiality and prompt access
reposed on this medium. 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 me.

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 
officials, we have in our possession an 
overdue payment bills 
totaling Eighteen Million, Five
Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars 
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.

amount (US$18.5m) represents the balance of the
total contract value 
executed on behalf of my
Department by a foreign contracting firm, 
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 
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 me. 

to contact me immediately through my secured email address whether or not you are interested in
this deal.If 
you are not, it will enable me contact another
Foreign partner with 
similar recommendation to carry
out this deal. I want to assure you 
that myself and my
partners are in a position to make the payment of 
this claim possible provided you can give us a very strong
and guarantee that our share will be secured
and Please remember to 
treat this matter as very
confidential matter; because we will not 
with any form of exposure as we are still in active
Government Service and remember once again that time
is of the essence 
in this business.

NOTE: I know there may be scams and junk mails 
here and there on the internet but certainly, this is
not one. 
Please do not fail to understand that in
spite of all that, 
opportunities of this kind still
abound. If you have ever wished or 
prayed for
something good to come your way, now I urge you to
take this 
message seriously and with an open mind. You
could never know. This may 
be an answer to 
your prayers.So please give it a benefit of doubt, and 
good faith and trust join me and I am assuring you now
that you 
will never be disappointed. Please reply
urgently and furnish me with

anticipation of your fullest co-operation. I

any questions concerning the
clarity of this transaction.
