MR ANTHONY WILLIAMS JR JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA PRIVATE MOBILE NO: + 27 76 118 3318 EMAIL- firstname.lastname@example.org PROPOSAL FOR URGENT BUSINESS ASSISTANCE Good day! This might be a surprise to you; I got your contact address from the South African chamber of commerce and industry here in Johannesburg. My name is MR ANTHONY WILLIAMS JR the son of LATE MR FREDERICK WILLIAMS of Zimbabwe. During the current war against farmers in Zimbabwe from the support of our PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE to claim all the white owned farms in our country, so he ordered all the farmers to surrender all their farms to his supporters and followers. Fortunately my father was one of the best farmers in our country and he is the treasurer of the OLIOKOTO FARMERS ASSOCIATION OF ZIMBABWE (O.F.A.Z.). Because he did not support his idea then his supporters invaded my father’s farm killed my father, burnt everything in our farm and as well made away with a lot of items. (MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE). Before my father’s death, he had deposited as a family treasure a box with a security and finance company in South Africa. The box contains the sum of US$25. 5 MILLION (TWENTY FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS). This money was mapped out for the purchase of new machinery from overseas. After the death of my father, I and my mother decided to move out of Zimbabwe to South Africa because our lives were still in danger. So right now we want to solicit for your assistance to help us transfer this money into your company’s or personal account for safe keeping until we come over to your country for our investments. So we are searching for a reputable and trustworthy individual/s that will help us to move this money out of South Africa, because here we are asylum seekers and we are not allowed t Please if you consider this proposal kindly contact me with the telephone number and my email address stated above and kindly provide us with your personal email address, telephone and fax numbers for easier communication as well. Upon the receipt of your interest then we will furnish you with the modalities that we have to take. For your relentless efforts we have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum, 5% will be set aside to offset all expenses incurred in the course of the transfer while 75% will be for my family’s investments in your country. Please kindly keep this transaction confidential. Your urgent response will be highly appreciated in this regard. Best regards, MR ANTHONY WILLIAMS JR (FOR THE FAMILY)
