Subject: Hello

Good day,

I am requesting for your assistance in a business transaction.

I work as a director of projects in the department of minerals and energy here Pretoria, South Africa.

I represent a four member committee vested with the responsibility of contracts evaluation. We (the committee) have in our possession overdue payment bills totaling Twenty seven Million United States Dollars($27,000,000.00 ) which we want to transfer abroad.

We would like you to receive this funds on our behalf because the South Africa civil service code of conduct does not allow us to operate offshore accounts hence we are contacting you.

This fund ($27,000,000.00 ) is the balance of the contract value executed in our department by a foreign firm, which we the committee deliberately over-invoiced and want to transfer to any foreign bank account you will provide.

We will require you to fill an application form that we shall submit to our country's justice department for the transfer of right and privilege of the former contractor to your name.

The actual contract cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance of the inflated ($27,000,000.00 ) mentioned above which we want to legally obtain approval from the appropriate government authorities and our apex bank for disbursement.

You will be paid 15% of this fund for your effort if we are able to reach working terms, 75% for us and 10% for tax and miscellaneous expenses in your country and our country. The business is legal and your area of specialization is not a hindrance to executing of this transaction.

I am available on this email to entertain any questions concerning the clarity of this transaction; please, send your full names, telephone numbers and contact details for more information if you are interested.

Thank you, I wait your reply.


Mr.Chris Bongani
