Dear Sir/Ma,
I am writing to solicit for your co-operation in a multi million dollars
international contract supply of equipments and other items to the South
African Government .I am a south African based in Europe but with strong
contacts and links to the government of south Africa, as a result of that
vantage position I was opportune to bid for open contracts with the names of
a foreign company which was won and approved, but due to my status and the
limited nature of my company in fulfilling the contract supplies, I am
contacting you to stand in as my foreign sub-contractor / partner or stead
to actualise the contract as an initial mobilisation fee of 10% entitlement
would be released to you or your company to take up the contract supply on
our behalf. 
One of the criteria for awarding the open contracts to me is the agreement
that each of the contract will be over-invoiced to the tune of
US$500,000{Five Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars}, and this will be made
available to the government officials who facilitated the award of this
contract to me, however i have found a financier who has agreed to make the
amount available.
With the payment of the whole or part of the over-invoiced amount to these
government officials, they will approve the initial mobilisation fee to us
amounting to the sum of US$5,000,000. {Five Million US Dollars}, as the
total contract sum will be worth about US$50Million {Fifty Million US
We are however instinctively trusting on your unalloyed support and
commitment to work with us on this project, also i am relying on your
goodwill and trustworthiness, be rest assured that we will not solicit nor
ask you for any upfront payment or any financial commitment on this project,
rather we shall ensure that our financier makes available to you the part or
the full initial sum of US$500,000{Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars},that 
will cause the initial payment of the mobilisation fee of $5million to us.
This offer is serious and urgent as it is not a hoax. If for whatever
reason{s} you are unable to help personally, I will be pleased if you can
recommend anybody/company that you know of that can be of assistance to us
on this matter, as i guarantee you a commission for your
