Dear Sir/Madam,
This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. I could have 
notified you about it at least for the sake of your integrity. But please accept my sincere 
I am Mrs. Mary Shorna , the wife to late Morgan R. Shorna the former Minister of Land and 
Agriculture in Zimbabwe, who was assassinated on the 18th of January 2005 by some of President 
Robert Mugabeâs aides. I managed to get your contact (email) details 
through your Country Online services here in Johannesburg South Africa in my desperate search for a 
trustworthy person to assist me in this confidential business.
My late husband, Morgan R. Shorna urges President Robert Mugabe to hand over the power or he my 
husband will resign after the much talked about Land Reform Policy that denies white farmers their 
farm land which my husband highly opposed.
After my husbandâs official resignation on the 16th of January2005, President Robert Mugabe, sent 
his aides âpoliceâ to beat up my husband in our home which lead to my husbandâs death.
My late husband, Morgan R. Shorna made some deposit in a Security Company in the Republic of South 
Africa for purchasing of Farm Equipments amounting to US$22.7 MILLIONS (Twenty Two Millions, Seven 
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in cash. This amount of money was transferred into South 
Africa through diplomatic channels.
After his death, I and my son being in Johannesburg , South Africa , decided to transfer the money 
out side the shores of South Africa for my family use since it is the only money that my family can 
lay hand on and I have all the original depositary documents of the money that was kept in a 
Security Company.
My son and I are currently living in Johannesburg while waiting for an appeal lodged by a lawyer on 
our behalf to the Department of Home Affairs, for our refugee statusâ application. We are having it 
difficulty in operating any type of bank transaction for the transfer of the money as the South 
African monetary policy is not favorable to people like us ((refugee) who have no permanent 
residence status. 
In acknowledgment of executive powers and the various business opportunities in your country, I am 
requesting your assistance in helping me transfer this money into your personal or business 
account. After the transfer is accomplished, my son and I will then follow you for subsequent 
investments in your Country.
For your assistance in this transaction, I offer you 30% of the total sum for compensation. And all 
other expenses you incur during this operation will be credited to you.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or my son. All documents concerning this transaction will be 
made available to you for your safety and as a proof that this money is not from any criminal 
origin. I must then emphasize that this operation/transaction is highly confidential and is to be 
kept as such. Kindly provide me with your full names, private phone and address or you can call on 
this my phone number for more details. {+27 84 993 9077} or email my son.
Best regards,
Mary Shorna Mrs.
