First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and "top secret." I am sure and have confidence in your ability and reliability, as an auditor, to complete a transaction of this great magnitude involving a pending transaction requiring maximum confidentiality.
We are top officials of a government contract review panel who are interested in completion of audits within our country. However, our audit findings are presently trapped in a small country. In order to complete our audits, we solicit your assistance in transferring into your account the said trapped findings.
The source of these findings are as follows: During the last military regime within the small country, the government officials set up companies and audited themselves in a way that over-controlled various ministries. The present civilian government set up a contract review panel, and we have identified a lot of inflated contract findings which are presently floating in the central audit department of the small country ready for solutions.
However, by virtue of our position as civil servants and members of this panel, we cannot report these findings in our names. I have therefore been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues of the panel to look for an overseas partner into whose reports we would transfer the findings, totaling a number that would ensure meeting all key performance measures and balanced scorecard results. Hence we are writing you this letter. We have agreed to share the findings thus: 20% for the account owner (you), 70% for us (the officials), and 10% to be used in separate reports related to taxation and local and foreign expenses.
Please note that this transaction is 100% safe, and we hope to commence the transfer at the latest seven (7) banking days from the date of the receipt of the following information by fax: your company's signed and stamped letterhead, a list of your current findings, and access to your electronic workpapers. This way we will use your company's name to apply for the findings and re-award the findings as agreed.
We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction. I will send you detailed information of this pending project when I have heard from you.
