Business Partner

May I through this medium seek for your co-operation and assistance in a business transaction
that requires high confidentiality. I am Mr. Johan Zimbili, a native of Cape Town in South Africa
and I work in the South African Department of Minerals & Energy. First and foremost, I apologize
for using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to
some confidentiality and the prompt access this medium affords. I obtained your contact through
trade and email listings over here at the department of trade, do not be alarmed over this as this
form of contact is part of the regular business ethics over here.

I have the mandate of two of my senior colleagues to search discreetly and diligently for a foreign
partner that could assist us concerning a business matter which will be of mutual benefit to all. We
do require your assistance in the transfer of US$15,500,000 (Fifteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) abroad.

The amount $15.5M represents an over-invoiced contract amount that was executed for my Ministry
by a mining company, which has since gone into liquidation. Although the actual contract amount
was paid to the company, the over-invoiced amount of US$15,500,000 has since been lying in the
