You may be surprised to receive this strange letter from me. I am Mrs. Annita Khubeka, the wife of Mr. John Khubeka of Zimbabwe. I got your address from an internet web site. After due consideration from your profile, I became aware and assured of your credibility to help me.
My husband was one of the rich black farmers among the rich white 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 white farmers in Zimbabwe. Before the Invasion, my husband took me to South Africa as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe and deposited US$15,400,000.00 (Fifteen Million, Four hundred thousand US dollars) 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. Please verify the information I have given you on this web site:
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 Frank Numa Khubeka has mandated me to seek foreign assistance as my late Husband indicated that the consignment is for onward shipment to his foreign partner for safe keeping purposes and investment.
Presently, I am residing in South Africa as an asylum seeker as from the deposit certificate it is clearly indicated that the consignment is meant for onward shipment to my late husbands foreign partner which I want to present you to the security company.
Kindly send to my son the below information.
*Your full names and address.
*Your country of origin and date of birth.
*Your private & fax phone numbers.
Please note that this transaction is 100% risk free, and for your effort, I am prepared to offer you 35% of the total sum when the consignment has been shipped or the fund transferred by bank to bank transfer to you in your country.
If this proposal is accepted by you, please reply urgently and get in touch with my only son Mr. Frank Numa Khubeka by phone: +27-78-477-8057 and email: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 - Zimbabwe.
Please consider this offer and our present condition as asylum seekers here and reply to my son urgently.
Mrs. Annita Khubeka.
