With due respect my name is kwuma aguli, the eldest son of MR.ANDREW OWEN of ZIMBABWE. It might be a surprise to you where I got your contact address; I got it from the South African Information Network
Online (SAINO) at South African Trade Center. And it is co ming to you with good intention. During the current crisis against the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporter s of our President, ROBERT MUGABE to claim all the white owned farms in our country. He ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers.
My father was one of the greatest and best farmers in the country and he did
not support the President's political ideology, and the President's supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt down everything, shot him and as a result of the injuries sustained, he became sick and died after five days. And after his death, my younger brother and I decided to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of our lives to South Af rica. But before he died he wrote his will, which
reads "MY BELOVEED SON, I
WISH TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO THE SUM OF US$25,000,000.00 TWENTY FIVE MILLION UNITE D STATES DOLLARS ONLY) WHICH I DEPOSITED IN A BOX WITH A SECURITY COMPANY IN JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA IN CASE OF MY ABSENCE ON EARTH CAUSED BY DEATH ONLY.YOU SHOULD SOLICIT FOR A RELIABLE FOREIGN PARTNER TO ASSIST YOU TO TRANSFERTHIS MONEY OUT OF SOUTH AFRICA FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES.
I DEPOSITED THE MONEY IN YOUR NAME AND YOU CAN CLAIM IT ALONE WITH THE DEPOSIT CODE. YOUR MOTHER HAS ALL THE DECUMENTS. TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR MOTHER AND BROTHER".
From the above, you will understand that the lives and future of my family
depends on this money and I will be very grateful if you can assist us. My
young er brother and I are now living in South Africa as POLITICAL ASYLUM
SEEKERS and the financial law of SOUTH AFRICA does not allow ASYLUM
SEEKERS certain financial rights to such huge amount of money. In vie w of this, I cannot invest this money in South- Africa, hence I am asking you to assist me to transfer this money out of South- Africa for investment purposes.
For your efforts, I am prepared to offer you 20% of the total fund, while 5% will be set aside for local and international expenses and 75% will be kept for my family. Finally, modalities on how the transfer will be done will be conveyed
to you once we establish trust and confidence between ourselves. Looking
forward to your urgent reply. For detailed information, please contact me on my direct line + 27-73 3935 626.
NOTE: THE KEY WORD TO THIS TRANSACTION IS ABSOLUTE CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECRECY. THIS TRANSACTION IS 100% RISK FREE. YOUR URGENT RESPONSE WILL
BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
All the best,
(FOR THE FAMILY).
