    Dear Sir,

    I am Mr.E.Tambo, a native of Cape Town in South Africa and I am an
    Executive Accountant with the South Africa Department of Mining & Natural
    Resources. First and foremost, I 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. Be informed that
    a member of the South Africa Export Promotion Council (SEPC) who was at
    the Government delegation to your country during a trade exhibition gave
    your enviable credentials/particulars to me. I have decided to seek a
    confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described
    Hereunder 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 Department of Mining & Natural Resources where I work as an
    Executive Accountant and with the cooperation of four other top officials,
    we have in our possession as overdue payment bills totaling Twenty - Six
    Million, Five Hundred Thousand U. S. Dollars ($26,500,000.) 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 $26.5m 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 Telegraphic Transfer (T.T) to any foreign bank account you will
    provide by filing in an application through the Justice Ministry 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 25%
    of the $26,.5 million, 70% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous
    expenses. 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 above
    Tel/Fax number or
    my e-mail address, whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you
    are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out
    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 as very confidential matter, because we will not
    comprehend with any form of exposure as we are still in active Government
    Service and remember once again that time is of the essence in this
    I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.

    Yours faithfully,

    Mr. E.Tambo
