From:Paul Smith Email:firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Friend, How are you today? I hope all is well with you. I do understand the concern this letter will bring to you for the fact that it comes from someone strange to you. But be rest assured for it come with good intentions. However, as I was going on research, looking for responsible and trustworthy someone who can help and assist me in this business/transferring some fund out from Accra Ghana into his personal or company account overseas. I am Mr. Paul Smith the only son of late Mr. Andrew Smith from Zimbabwe. My father was among the rich black farmers murdered in cold blood in Zimbabwe by war veterans of President ROBERT MUGABE However, the number of farmers killed in Zimbabwe over the new land act introduced by President does not give any concern. My main aim of contacting you is to assist me in transferring the sum of $ 12,000,000.00 (Twelve million United States Dollars) into your nominated oversea account; this money was given to my father by President Mugabe when they were still in good terms for investment purposes. My father deposited this money in a security company in Accra here in The Republic of Ghana as if he foresaw the looming blow of his death. My late father deposited the said funds as family treasure in order to avoid seizure since Ghana, have almost the same land laws with Zimbabwe presently. I am residing in Ghana with my mother as asylum seekers, and based on our present status we are deprived of some financial rights of banking activities. Moreover, this money is the only thing my late father left for us as such the entire life of my family depends on this money coupled with the responsibilities rested on me, I will be willing to go into partnership on any lucrative business you will suggest in your country. Out of my own good wile, I have decided to give you 30% of the total money, 70% will be for me and my family, which will also be invested in your country for the future Investment of my family. I will like you to contact me, via the above telephone number or email address. (email@example.com) Please ensure to keep this proposal confidential. I hope to hear from you as soon as possible. Best regards Mr. Paul Smith
