Before I start, I must first apologize for this unsolicited Letter to you. I am aware that this 
is certainly an unconventional approach to establish a relationship, but you will realize the need 
for my letter to you.

Attn  sir/madam

You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me in person, please 
consider it as a request from a brother; I am Mr. John Zuma , the first son of Mr. Iambert Zuma who 
was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact information through the 
South African online service and decided to write you. Before the death of my father, he had taken 
me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$25. 000,000.00 (Twenty Five Million United States 
Dollars) in one of the private security and finance company, as if he fore saw the looming danger 
in Zimbabwe . This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms 
and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland .
This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act 
reform, which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers, this resulted to 
the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the Society. In fact, a 
lot of people were killed because of this land reformed Act for which my father was one of the 
victims. It is against this background that, my family and I who are currently staying in South 
Africa decided to transfer this money to a foreign country since the law of South Africa prohibits 
refugees to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction.   
As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine 
foreign account where this money could be transferred into without the knowledge of my government 
who are bent on taking everything. All I seek for is an honest person/persons, whom I can entrust 
my future and that of my family; I must also let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free 
If you accept to assist our family please contact me with the above telephone number 
+27-83-94-844-95 This money I intend to use for investment and growth in your country. I have two 
options for you, firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your 
account for this transaction, or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable 
investment of the money in your country.

Which ever the option you want, feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money 
for all kinds of expenses we might incur in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer a 
partnership I am willing to give you 30% of the money, while the remaining 65% will remain for my 
family use. Finally please treat this matter as urgent. I知 in dire need to leave this 
country soonest. 

Thanks for your mutual understanding and cooperation.

Best regards,

Mr. John zuma.
