From: Comrade Des van Rooyen
Republic of South Africa

Please permit me to write to you irrespective of the fact we have not met before. My names are Comrade Des van Rooyen as indicated above; former Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs and thereafter Minister of Finance of the Republic of South Africa.

I write this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you and for your consideration, and I also apologize for intruding into your private email address because I know that this e-mail will come to you as a surprise. But however strange or surprising this contact might seem to you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, to this infect, I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance and immense benefit it will be to both of us. Please do not despair because I got your email address from a business advertising website on the Internet before making my contact with you.

I am in search of an Agent/Business person to assist me and my former principal, Former president of the republic, Comrade Jacob Zuma in transferring the sum of $12,500,000 (Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars) and subsequently invest it in Property / Real Estate Ventures. In case you wonder the source of fund, during my time as the Finance Minister we over-invoiced a contract and deposited the proceed in a secured bank/ finance house in Real Madrid, Spain with hope of using it after our retirement.

But due to the ongoing state capture which implicates me and my principal, we have decided to transfer this money out of where it is currently deposited presenting you as the beneficiary to avoid the searchlight of the government of the day.

Presently, I am incapacitated to travel out of the country due to the fact that my travelling documents was seized by the investigating officers and the government of the day but I will delegate my trusted partner upon receipt of your response to this mail so that you will communicate directly with him on the way forward.

Subject to formal partnership agreement, we are prepared to share this fund with you on the following terms: 35% will be for you, 10% for transaction expenses that will be made from both ends 55% will be for me and my principal. If you are interested in dealing with us on these terms, please let me know so that I make you a formal offer to partner with us and forward to you the proposed strategy or plan of transfer of the fund.

Please include your direct mobile telephone number in your reply to this mail for easier communication.

Kind regards
Comrade Des van Rooyen

He probably thinks "Comrade" is a proper name like those refugees think "Warlord" is a proper name.
