A Scam Email with the Subject "Compliments from Mary Hansa." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 06 Dec 2009 13:31:31 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Mrs.Mary Hansa" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I know that You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally.
I am Mrs.Mary Hansa the wife of Late Mr. Peter Zembuga Hansa, who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your e-mail address through my search on the internet for a reliable person to entrust the future of my children hence I decided to write you.
I confide in you to disclose my late husband's wealth.
Before the death of my late husband, he had taken me to South Africa to deposit the sum of US$29.Million (Twenty Nine Million United States Dollars), in one of the private security companies, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe.
This money was deposited in a box as germ stones and family treasure to avoid the knowledge of the content by anybody and also to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and Chemicals for the Farmer's CO-operation Union (F.C.U) for 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 husband was one of the victims.
It is against this background that I and my children who are currently staying in South Africa as refugees decided to move my late husband's money to a foreign country since the law in Republic of South Africa Prohibits refugees opening any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zones of South Africa.
As the wife, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be moved into without the Knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have.
All I am seeking is an honest person, whom I can entrust my children future and that of my family, I must also let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free. I will present you as a foreign partner to my late husband and the security company will release this money to you after which we will follow you to your country where you can help us to invest the money in a good lucrative business.
If you are willing to assist my family in claiming this money and moving it to your account,your share will be 30% of the total sum and 70% for me and my children. I will be pleased as soon as you indicate your interest by including your private phone and fax numbers in your positive response, this will enable me furnish you with further information.Kindly keep it confidential as I am still in the Refugee Camp with my children.
Thanks for your mutual co-operation as I expect your Soonest response.Kindly get back to me through this my confidential email address : email@example.com
