Attn: Mr. President / C.e.o

I am Dr.Shika Twala, Director of Project, South Africa Ministry of Mining & Natural Resources. I am making this contact with you based on the committee's need for an individual/company who is willing to assist us with a solution to a money transfer. First and foremost apologized using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to Confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium.

In unfolding this proposal, I want to count on you, as a respected and honest person to handle this transaction with sincerity, trust and confidentiality. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described Here under for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the nature of this transaction. Within the Ministry of Mining and Natural resources where I work as Director of Project Implementation and with the co-operation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as overdue payment bills totaling Fourteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$14,500,000.) which we want to transfer abroad with the assistance and cooperation of a foreign company/individual to receive the said fund on our behalf or a reliable foreign non-company account to receive such funds.

More so, we are handicapped in the circumstances, as the South Africa Civil Service Code of Conduct does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction.

This amount $14.5m represents the balance of the total contract value executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately. Though the actual contract cost have been paid to the original contractor, leaving the balance in the tune of the said amount which we have in principles gotten approval to remit by Key tested Telegraphic Transfer (K.T.T) to any foreign bank account you will provide by filing in an application through the Ministry of Justice here in South Africa for the transfer of rights and privileges of the former contractor to you.

I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should you be willing to assist us in the transaction, your share of the sum will be 20% of the$14.5 million, 70% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses and while balance 5% will go to charity organisation.The business itself is 100%safe, on your part provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. 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. Endeavor to contact me immediately through my e-mail to confirm whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partners to carryout this deal.

I want to assure you that my partners and myself are in a position to make the payment of this claim possible provided you can give us a very strong Assurance and guarantee that our share will be secured and please, remember to treat this matter very confidential, because we will not comprehend with any form of exposure as we are still in active Government Service. Once again, remember that time is of great essence in this transaction wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.

Yours faithfully,

Dr.Shika Twala

Dear Desk of Dr. Shika Twala,
During the last Hannover-Messe I managed to talk with your embassador, Mr Mercy John Miller Braide, but he said, that no one in Nigeria would be interrested in our product, the Omalutschbirnen, since we are a much too small manufactury. But I am happy, that he has not forgotten my emailaddress, and has forwarded it to you though.
As far as I can understand, you are looking for someone, who can assist you in your crudeoil-business. I must confess, that I have never done any business in this area, since our Omalutschbirnen are not used in this fields.
I am sorry, that I am not able to help you, and thank you for your interrest.

Dear Dr. Twala!
First let me express my apologizes for the mentioning of Nigeria. I just happened to misinterprete your mail and not seeing the word "South" in South Africa. I think it's because. as I said - the nigerian embassador was the only person I met from africa ever, and I thought, that he gave you my address.

In re-reading your letter, I must say, it sounds a little bit illegitimate, doesn't it? This may come to you as a surprise, but I am not interrested in doing anything illegal, because I want to spend the last days of my life breathing the fresh air of human kindness inspite of the miasma of some hellhole in Capetown.

Than you for your understanding

Erich Nigma
