From: Mrs. Gladys Jaja and Phillip (Son). Flat 106 high point building pretoria street Johannesburg 2001, South Africa. Tel: +27-72-070-6802 E-Mail: email@example.com Dear Sir/Madam, With due respect, trust and humility, I write you this proposal, which I believe, it would be of great interest to you. I found your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet for a reliable and capable foreign partner that will assist my family and me. I am Mrs. Gladys Jaja the wife of (late) Mr. Christopher Jaja of Zimbabwe. During the current war against farmers in Zimbabwe and from the support of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, all the white farmers were ordered to surrender their farms to his party members and his followers. My husband who was one of the best farmers in our country and treasury of the farmer's co-operation did not support our president idea, so the party members invaded my husband's farms and burnt everything in the farm, killed my husband and made away with a lot of items in the farm. After the death of my husband, my family and I decided to move out of Zimbabwe because of our lives were in danger. Before the death of my husband, he deposits the sum of US$18.2M (Eighteen Million Two Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) in one of the private security company, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money was deposited in a box as germ stones to avoid much demurrage from Security Company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for his farms and established of new farm in Swaziland. So if you consider this proposal, we have agree to give you 25% of the Total sum for helping us to move this money out of South Africa and 75% will be for me and my family to invest in your country. All I want is for you to furnish me your details and your personal phone and fax numbers and your email address for easy communication. Finally, as soon as you have indicated your interest and capability to handle this transaction then my son will details you the modality. Please contact my son PHILLIP on above email and telephone, call to notify him of your mail. Best Regards, Mrs. Gladys Jaja and Phillip (Son) (For The Family)
