Dear:
With regards to your esteem I wish to introduce myself, my name is Engineer Frans Baleni, I am the financial controller of the South African National Petroleum Corporation (SANPC) and by virtue of my services, I also occupy the seat of Executive Director of Petroleum Importation and Exploration of South Africa with office in Pretoria. I am in all honesty seeking your assistance for the transfer of Twenty Six Million United States Dollars (US$26,000,000.00) only to your account for our joint private investment purposes, hence my request for your assistance.
This amount accrued from an over-invoiced contract amount of the construction of oil refinery sub-stations in South Africa (northern region) in 2011 by expatriate companies in Malaysia and Iran. The original contract value was Two Hundred and Twenty Million United States Dollars (US$220,000,000.00) only but we inflated the cost and got the approvals and payments for Two Hundred and Forty Six Million United States Dollars (US$246,000,000.00) from the government.
The contract has long been completed and the contractors duly paid all their contract bills thereby remaining the US$26,000,000.00 over-invoiced which is still lying in a bank to be paid-out supposedly to the contractors in this quarter which I would like you to come and claim with my assistance.
I, and two other colleagues wish to seek your assistance to claim this money into your account overseas and we will meet afterwards to share it in the ratio 25/5/70. In this arrangement you will take 25% of the total amount, 5% will be set aside for possible expenses that may occur during the cause of this transaction while I and my partners will take 70%.
All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this sum have been put in place and as such I assure you 100% risk free, however I will appreciate if you treat with utmost confidentiality for security reasons. I have arranged with a top banker at the bank where the funds are and he has indicated his sincere interest and assured to help us move this fund out of South Africa.
Be informed that your interest, reputation and security had been considered before you were contacted hence we plead your course for sincerity should you consider to help.
Having been faced with the current spate of the pandemic "Corona Virus" we are all locked down to contain the spread which I see as a right step towards the right direction by the government.
I would want you to send to me your phone numbers, Full Names and your complete residential address so that I can send to you the detail transfer process
