Firstly, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Dr. David Igho . I am
an accountant and the Project Director employed by the
South African Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources recently transferred
to the South African Foreign Credit Office (SAFCO) in London with the
responsibility of auditing the South African Government Foreign Reverse
The reason I am now writing to you is because a contract performed
for the South African government by a foreign company between
1994-1996 which has long been invoiced was recently reviewed by the
Chief Accountant-General's office, where it was discovered that the
original invoice of US$9,500,000,00 (Nine Million Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars) has been inflated to US$39,500,000,00
(Thirty Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars.
Further investigations into government accounts by the chief
Accountant-General and my department revealed that the actual supply
invoice of USD 9.5 Million has been paid to the original contractors
but the outstanding inflated amount of USD30 Million has also been
approved for release by the chief Accountant-General. The sum has
however not been collected as the original contractors were unaware
of the inflated sum.
In accordance with this current administration's Contractual Payment
Laws, all foreign contract payments go through the (SAFCO) in London
where I have been transferred to work with the audit director.
Presently, this inflated amount of USD$30 Million is floating in the
government Federal Reserve offshore accounts awaiting claim. We are
three top ministry officials who know about this transaction. All we
now need therefore is a foreign partner whom we will use to front the
unclaimed sum of money.
We cannot collect this money by ourselves due to our position as
high-ranking Government employees working outside South Africa. The
South African Civil Service Code of Practice forbids all employees
working in (SAFCO) from operating foreign or offshore accounts. This
condition is presently stamped on our passport. This is why we need
your assistance to provide an offshore account of your choice where
we can transfer these funds.
Finally, I have been asked to inform you that after we successfully
transfer the money into your account, we would like to invest our own
share of the money in any business venture that you deem profitable
in the stable economy of your country with your help. I have also
been instructed to state what you stand to benefit should you be
interested to assist in completing this business simply by letting
this funds be transferred into your account by acting as the foreign
contractor. For your effort and assistance, you will be compensated
with 30% of the total sum, 60% for my partners and me while 10% has
been earmarked for any eventual expenses. We will provide you with
more details when you signal your acceptance of our proposal.
Thank you for your anticipated co-operation.
Note: It is of the utmost importance that this matter be kept
confidential and top secret. Please do not contact me if you do not want
participate to see through this transactions with us. Endeavour to destroy
piece of documentation immediately if you cannot help us.
