After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office of the chambers of commerce & industry here in

Johannesburg South Africa, I decided to contact you but I did not disclose the intention to anyone else

because of the delicate nature of the project. I found your profile very interesting and decided to reach you

directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of

US$25,500,000.00(Twenty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United states Dollars) to your country

within the next few days.

Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am a high placed official working with

Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg. I and two other colleagues are currently in

need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to transfer this sum of money. But at this

moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable business investment until I get your

response by email, please if you can take out a moment of your very busy schedule today to respond back

to my private email below for more details and include your private telephone number in your response

which I and my colleagues will highly appreciate.

This fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, through our private connections.

The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here in South Africa to any overseas beneficiary

confirmed by us as associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil servants in my country, we cannot

acquire this money in our names. Because as high placed civil servants, we are not allowed by the civil

service code of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of our shores. On the other hand, it is not

safe for us to keep the money here due to unstable political environment. I have been mandated as a

matter of trust by my colleagues, to look for an overseas silent partner who could work with us to facilitate

transfer of this fund for our mutual benefit, Hence the reason for this email.

My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as follows: (1) 15% to you as

commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 85%

belongs to me and two colleagues. You will be free to take out your commission immediately after the

money hits your account in your country. Since our objective is to invest the money in a foreign country, it

would be appreciated if you could also help us with advices and direction on investing into profitable

ventures in your country.

However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to further assist us with investing the money, we

can end our cooperation after you make available to me our part of the money. The transaction, although

discreet, is legitimate and the money will be transferred successfully with all necessary back-up official

documents showing the legitimate source/origin of fund.

The transfer will be effected within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach an agreement

and you furnish me with a suitable response indicating your interest for processing the transfer. I plead with

you on one issue, whether you are interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to any one else. I

confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to us or yourself. Please, give me your

response immediately by returning this mail through my alternative email address.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Phillip Buthelezi.
