From the Desk of: Mr. Mark David Project Managing Director Department of Mineral and Energy Republic of South Africa. REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL COOPERATION Hello; It is my great pleasure to write you this letter. Your information was given to me by a member of the South African Export Promotion Council (SAEPC) who was with the Government delegation on a trip to overseas country for bilateral conference talks to encourage foreign investors. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it confidential because of the nature of this business. Within the Department of Minerals & Energy where I work as an Director of Audit and Project Implementation, I have in my possession an overdue payment in US Dollar funds. The said funds represent certain percentage of the total contract value executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting firm, which the officials over-invoiced to the amount of US$28.500,000.00 (Twenty Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars). Though the actual contract cost has been paid to the original contractor, leaving the excess balance unclaimed. Since the present Government is determined to pay all foreign contractor's debts owed in order to maintain good relationship with foreign governments and non-governmental agencies. I intend to include this bills for approvals with the Department of Finance and the Contracts Award and Payments Committee. So i am seeking your assistance to front as beneficiary of the unclaimed funds, since i am not allowed to operate foreign accounts. Details and change of beneficiary information upon application for claim to reflect payment and approvals will be secured on behalf of you /your company. I have the authority to propose that should you be willing to assist me in this transaction your share as compensation will be so negotiated and agreed upon by both you and me on this side, before further details will change hands to enhance our primary objective. The mode of sharing after a successful transfer of the money into your account, shall be 70% to me , for the role you will be expected to play in this deal, i have agreed to give you 25% of the total sum and 5% for the expenses we are going to encounter by the two parties at the course of this transaction. The business is completely safe and secure, provided you treat it with utmost confidentiality. It does not matter whether you/your company does contract projects as a transfer of powers will be secured in favor of you/your company to settle any legality. Also, your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me. I expect your urgent response to enable me conclude this transaction urgently without any hitch. Kindly notify me further details upon your acceptance of this proposal via my private email Thanks for your co-operation. Best Regard Mr.Mark David
