URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL
My name is Mr. Malusi Sobili a high placed official working with
Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg South
I decided to reach you directly to solicit for your assistance and
guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of
US$30,500,000.00(Thirty Million Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) to your country.
Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am
currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can
use to transfer this sum of money.
But at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this
profitable business venture until I get your response by email, please
if you can take out a moment of your very busy schedule today to
respond back to my private email below for more details and include
your private telephone number for easier and faster communication with
This fund accrued legitimately to me as commission from foreign
contracts, through our private connections.
The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here into
any overseas beneficiary confirmed by me as associate/receiver. By
virtue of my position as a civil servant in my country, I cannot
acquire this money in my name. Because as a high placed civil
servant, I am not allowed by the civil service code of conduct to own
or operate bank accounts outside of our shores. On the other hand, it
is not safe for me to keep the money here due to unstable political
My proposal to you is that after you receive the funds, it would be
shared as follows: (1) 20% to you as commission for your co-operation
and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 80%
belongs to me, and you and I will be responsible for all legal fees to
ensure that the said fund leaves the shores of South Africa to your
designated bank account in your country.
You will be free to take out your commission immediately after the
money hits your account in your country. Since my objective is to
invest the money in a foreign country, it would be appreciated if you
could also help me with advices and direction on investing into
profitable ventures in your country.
However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to
further assist me with investing the money, we can end our cooperation
after you make available to me, my own part of the money. The
transaction, although discreet, is legitimate and the money will be
transferred successfully with all necessary back-up official documents
showing the legitimate source/origin of fund.
The transfer will be concluded within 14 days official working period
as soon as we reach on an agreement and you furnish me with a suitable
response indicating your interest for processing the transfer.
I plead with you on one issue, whether you are interested or not,
kindly do not expose this information to any one else.
I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks
either to yourself or myself. Please, give me your response
immediately by returning this mail through my alternative email
