E-mail from Mr.Victor Williams 49 West India Dock Road Limehouse London UK E14 8HN Email: Dear PROPOSAL FOR URGENT ASSISTANCE. My name is Mr.Victor Williams the elder son of Mr.BENJAMIN WILLIAMS of Zimbabwe . This might be a surprise to you about where i got your contact address.I got your address from the British Chamber of Commerce in London, United Kingdom. During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supports of our president Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all farms to his party members and his followers. My father is One of the best farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabes ideas, Mugabe supports invaded my fathers farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing my father and made away with a lot of items in my fathers farm. Before his death, my father had deposited (US$10.5 MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) with a Security Company in United Kingdom, London UK. After the death of my father, we decided to move to London UK where he had deposited the money in the Security Company as valuables. So I decided to contact overseas firm and companies that will assist me to move this money out of London because as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any Bank Account within United Kingdom. We have agreed to offer you 35% of the total sum for your assistance, 5% will be mapped out for any expenses that may be incurred in the course of this transaction while 60% will be for me and my family to invest in your country. All I want you to do is to furnish me with your information such as: personal phone number, office/residential address, age, occupation and fax numbers for easy communication. You can contact me via email address . Note that this transaction is 100% Risk free and absolutely confidential. Yours faithfully, MR: Victor Williams (FOR THE FAMILY)
