It is my great pleasure to write you this letter on behalf of my colleagues.
I got your information from a colleague in the chamber of commerce in my
country while searching for a reliable partner to assist in this proposal. I
have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with
you in execution of a deal hereunder for the benefit of all parties, and
hope you will keep it confidential because of the nature of this business.
Within the Department of Mining Resources where I work as the Director of
Projecj Implementation, with co-operation of two other top officials, we
have in our possession, an overdue payment in US funds.
The said funds represent certain percentage of the contract value executed
on behalf of my Ministry by a foreign contracting firm, which we the
officials over-invoiced to the amount of US$US$26.5M. (Twenty - Six Million
Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). Though the actual contract
cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving the excess
balance unclaimed.
The Government of the Republic of South Africa believe that private
investment in general, and foreign direct investment in particular, are the
real engines for sustainable economic development, for which reason it has
continued to encouraged investment in the key growth-oriented sector of
Mining with sincere determination to payforeign contractors all
debts owed to them, so as to continue to enjoy close relationship, and
mutually beneficial co-operation with foreign governments and
non-governmental financial agencies.
As a result we included our bills for approvals with the co-operation of
some officials at
the Department of Finance and the Reserve Bank of South Africa (RBSA). We
are seeking your assistance to be the beneficiary of the unclaimed funds,
since we are not allowed to operate foreign account.
The changing of beneficiary`s information/ details and other forms of
documentation upon application for claim to reflect the contract money and
its approvals will be secured on behalf of your company or your self.
I have the authority of my colleagues involved to propose that, should you
be willing to assist us in this transaction your share as compensation will
be 20% while my colleagues and I shall receive 70%, and the balance of 10%
shall be used to reimburse all expenditures, taxes and miscellaneous
expenses so incurred. It does not matter whether or not your company does
contract projects of the nature described here.
The assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted
it to other companies. More often than not, big trading companies and firms
of unrelated fields win major contracts, and subcontract to more specialized
firms for execution. This business itself is 100% safe, provided you treat
it with utmost confidentiality. Also your specialization is not a hindrance
to the successful execution of this mutual beneficiary transaction.
Please kindly notify me for further details if you are interested or not in
this proposal by sending me mail or call on my email add above.
