Societe Nationale'D Electricite Du Burkina(SONABEL)+226 78 00 68 17Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso.West Africa. Dear Friend, I know this may come as surprise and sceptic to you. I am one of the officials in the Energy management board in Burkina Faso, . We had a contract with Denmark through the Burkina Faso Danish Cooperation, which was signed on the 4th of march, 2003 on the Electrification of the Urban centres, offices and rural dwellers. The project has been executed, For better understand and your pursual,I would like you to study this given website:.www.sonabel.bf But, the main issue of contacting you is to intimate you that during the award of this contract, a few of my colleagues and l had inflated the amount of this contract and the OVER- INVOICED is being safeguarded under our custody. However, we have decided to transfer this sum of money, $74.8million USA Dollars out of this Country for disbursement. Hence, we seek for a reliable,honest and not greedy foreign partner whom we shall use his or her account for transferring the fund. And we agreed that the account owner shall benefit 30% of the total amount of money, 65% is for us here, and 5% will be used for miscellaneous expenses during the transfer. If you are capable to handle the transaction without hitches and flaws, then we have confidence in the deal, and a risk free transfer from our side. Please, make it TOP SECRET and avoid every channel of implicating us here thereby endanger our career. Therefore, if you will not be able to handle it,please hold on your peace for our sake we are public servants. I pray to God for his providence for a smooth transfer, so that our retiring soon or later will be a better and blissful retirement life, as such we are very cautious towards actualising this noble venture. It can also be a once in life opportunity for you, because l know that we are going to see face-face, preferably come down to Burkina Faso and verify on the claim on the said amount of money in the bank. Besides, to discuss business and investment in your country at large, and thereafter sit together to decide on the means of transferring.If this picks your interest, please do contact me immediately for more details and for easier communication. Do copy and reply me on this my private email address for the commencement of this deal. email@example.com Please, time is no longer on our side. Best regards, DR ALEX MOHAMMAD.
