I Mr. Simon Tafida one of the foreign liaison officers of the Sierra-Leone Diamond and Mining Corporation do
crave your indulgence in a business proposal,though strange, which I pray you would view seriously.First and foremost I am an accountant and a foreign liaison officer with the Sierra-Leone Diamond and Mining Corporation and also a member of its foreign contract tender committee.
This said amount Nine million dollars ( US$9M) emanated from an over invoiced (inflated contract value) contract
which was awarded to a foreign firm for the supply of equipment and turn around maintenance(TAM)in the Mining corporation.This contract was awarded and executed with real value paid, but the approve sum of variation (Inflated Contract Value) which is currently placed in a Trust company for safe keeping is what I and my colleagues in the (DMC) now want to transfer for further investment ventures.
After due consultative sessions with members of the board of Committee, I was mandated to seek and arrange with a foreign national who can assist us in the transfer of this funds.
Your assistance is needed for two main reasons,
1) As public office holders, (The Sierra-Leone Code of Conduct Bureau) put a ban on public office holders from operating foreign bank accounts
2)That we need a foreign national to assist us in areas of investment preferably Real estate and Telecommunications.
Members of my committee and I have unanimously agreed to compensate you with 15% of the total sum of the money.(US$9m) if you are willing to to render us your assistance regarding the transfer. It was also agreed that 5% be set aside to offset incidental expenses that might be incurred by both parties in the course of effecting this transfer. The remaining 80% shall be ours.
While promising you a quick and trouble free transfer of this funds,we want you to note that this is a very sensitive transaction which should not be disclosed to any other party than both of us.
Its also important that you acknowledge the receipt of this letter, should you be/not interested in this business proposal, to enable us scout for another interested partner.as you would know, this will be the beginning of a long lasting business relationship between both of us.
