REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE IN A FINANCIAL TRANSACTION.

I am interested in your partnership in business. This business proposal
I wish to introduce you with is of mutual benefit and entirely based on
mutual trust, cooperation and a high level of confidentiality as regard
this transaction.

I am representing the board of the contract award and monitoring
committee of the Zambian Ministry of Mining and Resources. I am seeking
your assistance to enable me transfer the sum of US$130,500,000.00 (One
Hundred and Thirty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)
into your private/company account.

The fund came about as a result of a contract awarded and executed and
on behalf of my Ministry. The contract was supposed to be awarded to two
foreign contractors to the tune of US$380,000,000.00 (Three Hundred and
Eighty Million United States Dollars). But in the course of
negotiation, the contract was awarded to a Bulgarian contractor at the
cost of US$249,500,000.00 (Two Hundred and Forty-nine Million, Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) to my benefit unknown to the
contractor.

This contract has been satisfactorily executed and inspected as the
Bulgarian firm is presently securing payment from my Ministry, where our
Board is in-charge of all foreign contract payment approval. As a civil
servant still in active government service, I am forbidden by law to
operate an account outside the shores of Zambia. Hence this message to
you seeking your assistance so as to enable me present your account
details as a beneficiary of contractual claims alongside that of the
Bulgarian contractor, to enable me transfer the difference of
US$130,500,000.00 (One Hundred and Thirty Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) into your provided account.

On actualization, the fund will be disbursed as stated below. 20% of the
fund will be for you as beneficiary 80% of the fund will be for Us. All
logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for a smooth
actualization of the transaction within the next few working days of
commencement. For further details as to the work ability of this
transaction, please reach me as soon as possible for further
clarification contact me on my email address below:

Thank you and God bless as I await your urgent response.
Yours Sincerely,
Mr.Robert Larry
