Dear Beloved One,

Best compliment of the season! Sorry for the inconvenience this mail may course you, since we have not met or exchange email nor transact any business before. Actually, I got your contact from the foreign chamber and commerce department and I wish to intimate you with this proposal in my capacity as an Orphan. We need your help; I am Williams Ford, The son of late Chief Terry Ford who died few years ago as a result of the revolt and campaign of calamity visited on white farmers in Zimbabwe. Though a black man but because of his upright stand that the government forcefully took over of farms from the white farmers all in the name of land reforms was absurd and inhuman, he was viewed as an enemy and eventually murdered by the government of Robert Mugabe. I am enclosing a webpage which announced the incident which led to the death of my father.

Ever since then, my Sister and I has been in Zambia on asylum because of the government in Zimbabwe has been hunting us. Before my father's death, he deposited a consignment with a Security Company in Accra-Ghana. The consignment was deposited in my name and I do not have any representative who can act and speak in my behalf. The consignment contains precious diamond stones and a huge sum of US$14,000,000.00. The money was deliberately concealed for Security reasons.

With the sole aim of acquired some dredging equipments in setting up of a dredging firm with his partner. With his death and all his assets seized at home and accounts frozen, the family is now in a very difficult situation. Presently, my ultimate target with the fund is to relocate to your country with my only younger Sister and invest in some High Yield Investment Portfolios (HYIP). Also further our education. Your kind overseas co-operation and assistance in receiving the consignment on my behalf is greatly needed to realize this target, we are ready to give you 20% of the total sum if you are willing to assist us.

The reason why we are contacting you now is to assist us to stand as my late father's partner by presenting yourself to the Security Company in Ghana as our beneficiary. We have all the necessary documents with us but we need somebody who will stand as my late father's partner. We are in a difficult situation and we need your help so that we can transfer the money out of Ghana to a safer place. The amount deposited was US$14,000,000.00 and. At the moment we are in Refugee camp in Ghana and we hope to hear from you soon. If you are interested, Please send us your international, your address and your useful information. Looking forward to hearing from you. Please reply me on this email: or
