MR THANDI LUCSON
DEPARTMENT OF MINERALS AND ENERGY,
PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA.
ATTN: SIR / MADAM
CONFIDENTIAL & URGENT
It is my great pleasure to write you this letter on behalf of my
colleagues. Your information was given to me by a member of the
South African Export Promotion Council (SAEPC) who was with the
Government delegation on a trip to your country for a bilateral
conference talk to encourage foreign investors. I have decided to
seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the
deal hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will
keep it confidential because of the nature of this business.
Within the Department of Minerals & Energy where I work as a
Director of Audit and Project Implementation and with the
co-operation of two other top officials, we have in our possession
an overdue payment in US funds.
The said funds represent certain percentage of the total contract
value executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting
firm, which we the officials over-invoiced to the amount of
US$26.500,000.00 (Twenty-Six Million Five Hundred Thousand US
Dollars). Though the actual contract cost has been paid to the
original contractor, leaving the excess balance unclaimed.
Since the present elected Government is determined to pay foreign
contractors all debts owed, so as to maintain good relationship with
foreign governments and non-government agencies, we included our
bills for approvals with the Department of Finance and the South
Africa Reserve Bank (SARB). We are seeking your assistance to front
as beneficiary of the unclaimed funds, since we are not allowed to
operate foreign accounts.
Details and change of beneficiary information upon application for
claim to reflect payment and approvals will be secured on behalf of
I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should
you be willing to assist us in this transaction your share as
compensation will be US$6.625m (25%), while my colleagues and I
receive US$17.225m (65%) and the balance of US$2.650m (10%) for
taxation and miscellaneous expenses incurred.
The business is completely safe and secure, provided you treat it
with utmost confidentiality. It does not matter whether you/your
Company does contract projects, as a transfer of powers will be
secured in favour of you/your Company. 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 us.
Thanks for your co-operation.
MR THANDI LUCSON
