I am Dr David Peterson, Director Project Implementation with South African
Anglo-Gold Corporation in Johannesburg and a member of the Contract
Tenders Board (CTB) of the above corporation.
Your esteemed address was reliably introduced to me at the South African
Chamber of Commerce and Industry in my search for a reliable
individual/company who can handle a strictly confidential transaction,
which involves the transfer of a reasonable sum of money to a foreign
account. the amount of money involved isUS$30,000,000,00 (THIRTY MILLION
UNITED STATES DOLLARS).
This money has already been extracted from various contracts awarded by
this corporation, as a result of over-invoicing masterminded by the
concerned officials involved, this has been drafted to represent the final
payment for a contract that has been executed to this corporation some
the money is now floating in the suspense account of the reserve bank of
South Africa awaiting claim by any foreign partner which status we now
want you to resume.
Now is the optimum period to consummate this fund, following the
presidential directive to all parastatals to settle all outstanding debts
owed to both local and foreign contractors. In my last meeting with the
Officials involved, it was unanimously agreed that 25% of the total sum
will be given to you, 70% will be for us while 5% will be use to reimburse
the expenses that will be incurred in the processing of this transfer.
I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free as we have concluded
every arrangement to protect the interest of everyone involved, Likewise
all modalities for the successful transfer of this fund have been worked
out with Ministry of finance and the Reserve Bank of South Africa to
facilitate the remittance of this fund to your designated account within
72 hours after your claim has been approved.
However, I would want to believe that you are honest enough and will not
raise any misgiving attitude in any aspect of the transaction, more
importantly, that you will keep this transaction very confidential so as
not to tarnish the confidence reposed on these officials by the Government
of South Africa.
If this proposal is of interest to you, then kindly contact me with above
private telephone number immediately or you can send me an email to
Please treat this information as confidential.
