Pretoria, South Africa.
On behalf of my colleagues and I, I write this
letter with great pleasure. Your information were
given to me by a member of the South African Export
Promotion Council (SAEPC) who was with the Black
Economic Empowerment Commission (Government)
delegation on a trip to the United States during a
bilateral conference talk to encourage foreign
investors. I have decided to seek a confidential
co-operation with you in execution of a business
transaction hereunder for the benefit of all
Within the Department of Mining Resources where I
work as the Director of Project Implementation, with
co-operation of two other top officials, we have in
our possession, an overdue payment in US funds.
The said funds represent certain percentage of the
contract value executed on behalf of my Ministry by
a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials
over-invoiced to the amount of US$14,300,000.00
(Fourteen Million, Three Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars). Though the actual contract cost has
been paid to the original contractor, leaving the
excess balance unclaimed.
The Government of the Republic of South Africa
believe that private investment in general, and
foreign direct investment in particular, are the
real engines for sustainable economic development,
for which reason it has continued to encourage
investment in the key growth-oriented sector of
Mining with sincere determination to pay foreign
contractors all debts owed to them, so as to
continue to enjoy close relationship, and a mutually
beneficial co-operation with foreign governments and
non-governmental financial agencies. As a result we
included our bills for approvals with the
co-operation of some officials at the Department of
Finance and the Reserve Bank of South Africa (RBSA).
We are seeking your assistance to be the beneficiary
of the unclaimed funds, since we are not allowed to
operate a foreign account. The changing of
beneficiary's information/details and other forms of
documentation upon application for claim to reflect
the contract money and its approvals will be secured
on behalf of your company or your good self.
I have the authority of my colleagues involved to
propose that, should you be willing to assist us in
this transaction your share as compensation will be
30% while my colleagues and I shall receive 60%, and
the balance of 10% shall be used to reimburse all
expenditures, taxes and miscellaneous expenses so
It does not matter whether or not your company does
contract projects of the nature described here. The
assumption is that your company won the major
contract and subcontracted it to other companies.
More often than not, big trading companies and firms
of unrelated fields win major contracts, and
subcontract to more specialized firms for execution.
This business itself is 100% safe, provided you
treat it with utmost confidentiality. Also your
pecialization is not a hindrance to the successful
execution of this mutual beneficiary transaction. I
have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you
will not disappoint us.
Kindly notify me by email for further details, upon
your acceptance of this proposal.
Engr. William Goye.
