Attention: Dear Sir/Madam,

You may be surprised to receive this strange letter from me. I am Mrs.Rose Lucas the wife of Mr.david Lucas of Zimbabwe.I got your address from the world web yellow address page. After due consideration from your profile, I became aware and assured of your credibility to help me.

My husband was among the rich farmers in Zimbabwe who were murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of president Robert Mugabe because my husband was against the method adopted by the government on new land reform act that wholly affected the farmers in Zimbabwe. Before the Invasion, my husband took me to South Africa as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe and deposited USD$10.5Million with a security and finance company in South Africa as a Family Valuables.

This money was for buying farm lands in Lesotho,Swaziland,and also machinery for the farm.Heads of government from western world, especially Britain and The U.S.A, have voiced their condemnation against Mugabe's new land reform act.It is against this background that my only son John Lucas has mandated me to seek foreign assistance as my late Husband indicated that the consignment is for onward shipment to his foreign partner for investment purposes.

Presently, I am residing in South Africa as an refugee. It is clearly indicated on deposit certificate that the consignment is meant for onward shipment to my late husband foreign partner which I want to present you to the security company. Kindly send me the below information.

*Your full names and address.
*Your country of origin and date of birth.
*Your occupation
*Your private phone number.

Please note that there is no risk involved in this business, and for your effort, I am prepared to offer you 20% of the total sum when the consignment has been shipped to you in your country.

If this proposal is accepted by you, get in touch with my only son Mr.john Lucas by email, phone +27721858640 so that he will then furnish you with more details. I will appreciate if you maintain the confidentiality of this matter because of the happenings in my country.
