Sir, I am Dr D.Pedro, a chairman with one of the government parastatals in Africa. I want us to go into a mutually beneficial business that needs your strict confidentiality and dedication. This business involves the transfer of a huge amount of money from my Country. It has very little liabilities and it is very safe. The fund to be transferred is US28,600,000:00. It is generated from an over - invoiced contract and your job is basically to act as a sub-contractor to my department and get this money out for us. For helping us accomplish this you will get 20% of the funds. Please, if you are interested kindly respond to this e-mail giving me your full contact details, including your mobile telephone numbers for elaborate discussion on the way forward. Kind regards, Dan P
