Chairman of contract award...

More bullshit:

```````````````````

Sir/Madam,
My name is Mr Eric Jones ,chairman of contract award and monitoring
committee of the ministry of
industry and international trade development ,my duty as empowered by
the Mauritius government is to
provide the basic amenities, social recreational activities in urban
and rural areas.
This program includes assistance to deprived local communities and to
co-ordinate projects and
development at the national level.Furthermore,from this projects were
able to realize some reasonable
amount of u.s.$21.8(Twenty one million eight hundred thousand US.
dollars only) as commission from
various contractors resulting from over invoicing of payment
receipts/vouchers hence all the necessary
approvals has been completed.
These approved funds were packaged and dispatched through a security
company for onward delivery
to its destination in Europe.The money was first deposited into a
security vault before we arrange for its
movement to Europe through diplomatic channel using decoy purporting
that the fund belongs to an
expatriate/company.

As we are government officials, the oath of office does are not allowed
us to operate foreign bank
account,hence we need you to stand as the beneficiary and claim the
fund on our behalf from the
security company.

Presently I am now in Europe to search for a reliable person/company of
high integrity /dignity and one
with conscience who will claim this fund on our behalf as the
beneficiary.

We have agreed to give you 30% of the total sum as commission for your
assistance/effort and 5% will
be used to settle every expenses incurred, we will use 65%to invest
under your recommendation/guide
and go into joint venture business with you .

I would greatly appreciate your assistance and I look forward to your
response as soon as possible
through this e mail address:ericjon1000@netscape.net

Best regards,
Mr Eric Jones
