FROM: MR SAMUEL CHITANDO E-mail: email@example.com Direct phone number (+346-725-05-895 ) Madrid Spain. Dear Sir/Madam, You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally. I am MR. SAMUEL CHITANDO the son of MR. LEWIS CHITANDO, who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact through Spanish Chamber of commerce hence I decided to write you. Before the death of my Father, he had notified me about the money US$43,600,000.00 (Forty-Three Million, Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) he deposited in Governmental bonded vault here in Spain. As if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money was deposited in a box as personal valuables for a foreign partner to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland. This land problem came when Zimbabwean President MR. ROBERT MUGABE introduced a new Land Act reform, which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers. This resulted to killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact, a lot of people were killed because of this land reformed Act for which my Father was one of the victims. It is against this background that, I who is currently staying in Madrid Spain decided to transfer my Father’s money to a foreign country since the law of Spain prohibits refugees from opening any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zones of Spain. I am now saddled with the responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreigner who can provide us with a reliable account where this money could be transferred into .All I seek for is an honest person, whom I can entrust with my future and that of my family. I must also let you know that this transaction demands absolute confidentiality. If you accept to assist me and my family, all I want from you is to help us with an account in your name, which will aid us in transferring the money into any account, you will nominate overseas. This money we intend to use for investment and growth in your country. We intend to share the funds thus; For Your Involvement; 25% Myself & My Mother; 75% I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses we might incur in the process of this transaction. Remember this business is highly confidential and shall be kept within you alone and My Dear you can reply to my private Email Address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for security reason thanks and try to kept this transaction confidential also.
