AUSTRALIAN MINING COMPANY
RE: CONTRACT NO: AUMC/PED/401/2013
Although this mail might come to you as a surprise, since it is from someone you do not know or seen before, but base upon recommendation I gathered about your person, I had to contact you for your assistance to transfer fund into your account.
I am the Director, Funds Coordinator of the Finance/Contract Department of the Australian mining company and we take care of mining and oil and gas. My office is also saddled with the responsibility of screening, categorization and prioritization of projects embarked upon by Australian mining company, as well as feasibility studies for selected projects and supervising the projects consultants involved. A breakdown of the fiscal expenditure by this office as at the end of the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 indicates that the Australian mining company paid out a whooping sum of US$936M (Nine Hundred and Thirty Six Million, United States Dollars) to
successful contract beneficiaries. The Australian mining company is now compiling beneficiaries to be paid at the last fiscal quarter of 2016.
The crux of this letter is that the finance/contract department of the Australian mining company deliberately over-inflated the contract value of the various contracts awarded. In the course of disbursement, this department has been able to track down the sum of US$100M (One Hundred Million, U.S. Dollars) as the over-invoiced sum. This money is now lying and floating in the Australian mining company domiciliary account with the Reserve Bank of Australia (RVB). My colleagues and I want to quickly transfer this fund to a safe nominate foreign account for possible investment abroad; this is the reason why I contacted you.
