Dear Sir/ Madam
This might come as a surprise to you, however, this is worth looking
at. I am a staff with the Ministry of Minerals and Energy in South
Africa,and by this email, I am representing and also acting on behalf of my
boss and two other senior colleagues (The Director-General and the Group
General Manager) whose mandate I have, to contact a trusted and reliable
foreign based partner, concerning an investment opportunity/funds transfer.
By this mandate given to me, we are in dire need of a foreign partner
to assist us in the transfer /investment of $10,000,000.00 (Ten
million United States Dollars.) The key issues is the transfer and the
subsequent investment of the said sum. We are ready to go into an agreement with
you and also "OFFER YOU A NEGOTIABLE FEE" IF you help us in
securing the transfer and also PUTTING TOGETHER AN INVESTMENT
PORTFOLIO in which the funds will be invested in your Country.
It does not matter whether or not you own a company or you have
invested funds before, WE SHALL GUIDE YOU ON WHAT TO DO. The bases
will be that a major company won a contract from my ministry and subcontracted it to
you.More often, big trading companies and firms of unrelated fields win
contract and subcontracts to more specialised firms for execution.
We shall follow strictly all the legal procedures entailed in our
laws and international laws in transferring the funds legitimately and
Please, be informed that under the South African Government monetary
policy,strategic positioned Government officials are not allowed to
operate or own bank accounts overseas, hence our need for a "Foreign
Partner to front for us".
We pray that you take the essence of this letter in strict
confidence, as the three officials involved would not like to be
exposed on this,kindly notify me via this email box for further details, upon your
acceptance to assist us, more details will be made available to you
as soon as you reply.
Thank you as I wait for your favourable response,
