E-Mail; []    Dear Sir/Madam    

                                         URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL.

After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office of the chambers of commerce & industry here in Johannesburg South Africa, I decided to contact you but I did not disclose the intention to anyone else because of the delicate nature of the project. I found your profile very interesting and decided to reach you directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of US$23,000,000.00 (Twenty Three million Dollars) to your country within the next few days. Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am a high placed official working with Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg. I am currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity i can use to transfer this sum of money. But at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable business investment 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 in your response which I will highly appreciate.
This fund accrued legitimately to me as commission from foreign contracts, through my private connections. The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here in South Africa to any overseas beneficiary confirmed by me as associate/receiver. By virtue of my positions as civil servant in my country, I cannot acquire this money in my names.  Because as 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 environment. I am looking for an overseas silent partner who could work with me to facilitate the transfer of this fund for our mutual benefit, hence the reason for this email.
My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as follows: (1) 15% to you as commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer,  while 5% will be for any expenses incurred during the process by both parties, while the remaining 80% belongs to me. 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 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 affected within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach 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 anyone else. I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to yourself or me. Please, give me your response immediately by returning this mail through my alternative email address.    


Yours Faithfully,
Dr. Kenn Bossman
