| Confidential Contract Proposal |
Our Ref : Ken Hendricks
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 and decided to look for someone for assistance and guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of US$22 ,500,000.00 to your country within the next few days.
Please, I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I work with the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform& Rural development in Johannesburg. I am 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,
This fund accrued from over inflated contract executed by foreign contractors, through our private connections. The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from a commercial bank in South Africa.
By virtue of my position as a civil servant in my country I cannot acquire this money in my name. Because as a highly placed civil servant, I am 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 security reason. I have decided to look for an overseas silent partner who could work with me 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: 50% to you as commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 50% belongs to me. You will be free to take out your commission immediately after the money is transferred to 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 advice and direction on investing into profitable ventures in your country.
All we need to do is give you an approval from the ministry and you can email the approval to the paying bank to facilitate the processing and transfer of the contract funds into any of your nominated bank account. If you are interested and capable, I request you forward your personal details to my private email address (email@example.com) to enable me contact you for further discussion.
Thanks in anticipation of your cooperation,
