Read more about the history of this scam.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am an accountant and a member of the Contract Tender Board (CTB) of
the Petroleum, Oil & Gas Corporation of South Africa (PTY) Ltd also
known as PetroSA. I am presently on a special diplomatic duty in the
South Africa foreign office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I got your
contact through discreet inquiries in my search for a reliable
individual or company who can handle a strictly confidential transaction
that involves the transfer of a reasonable sum of money to a foreign
account. I have no doubt in your ability to handle a financial business
of considerable amount, which will form the bedrock of an extensive
business partnership in due course. In unfolding this proposal, I want
to count on your status that you will handle this transaction with all
maturity and confidentiality it deserves.

The money we want to transfer to you amount to a total of
US$15.500,000.00 (Fifteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) only. It was extracted from various over-invoiced contracts,
masterminded by myself and some of my colleagues for our mutual benefit
when the contracts was awarded by the Contracts Tender Board (CTB) of
the Petroleum, Oil & Gas Corporation of South Africa (PTY) Ltd. The
above over-invoiced sum has been drafted and short-listed for final
payment to a foreign bank account and it has been reflected as an amount
to be paid to a foreign contractor for contract that has been executed
for the Petroleum, Oil & Gas Corporation of South Africa (PTY) Ltd. The
money is currently floating in the suspense account of the South Africa
Reserve Bank (SARB) awaiting claim by a foreign partner, which status we
absolutely want you to assume. The code of conduct bureau in South
Africa has made it an offence for civil servants like us to(A) operate a
foreign account(B) own a foreign company and(C)take up contract while
still in active service. This is why we need your assistance.

Now is the optimum period to realize this fund following the recent
directive given to all-federal parastatals and corporations to pay off
all foreign debts. I therefore seek your assistance to allow the
remittance of this fund to be made to your personal or company?s bank
account. We have agreed that 30% of the total sum will be given to you
and 70% will be for me and my colleagues after the successful
transference of the fund to your bank account.

I want to assure you that all modalities for the successful transfer of
this money to your account has been perfectly worked out and as such,
there is no fear of failure. However, I would want to believe that you
are honest enough and will not raise any misgiving attitude In any
aspect of the transaction. Most importantly, you will keep this
transaction very confidential so as not to tarnish the confidence
reposed on these officials by the nation?s financial house. If this
proposal interests you, kindly indicate your willingness to me through
email Address: allenmon7@netscape.net for immediate commencement of the
transaction.

To enable this fund to be successfully transferred to your account, you
will also have to provide the following information:

1. Your company name and address that you wish to use as the beneficiary
to claim the fund.

2. Your private telephone, fax Numbers.

3. Your Bank name, address and account number where you would want the
money remitted.

More information about the remittance of the fund to your account will
be sent to you when I receive your response. Meanwhile, your swift
response will help us to meet the ultimatum given to all foreign
contractors in this payment quarter to ensure that funds are claimed. We
also wish to discuss investment strategy with you. We have the plan of
investing part of our fund in real estate with your assistance in your
country. Please treat this information as confidential.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Allen mongan.
