The sender was "Wahid" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally, the purpose of my introduction is that, I am Mr.Kelvin Green first and only son of DAVID GREEN, who was recently murdered in theland dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact through United Nation seach information centre for those who are trust worthy so i decided to write you. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Accra Ghana in West Africa to deposit the sum of US$7.5 Million (Seven Million Five Hundred United States 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 the farms and established of new farm in Swaziland.
This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr.ROBERT MUGABE introduce a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich white
farmers and some few blacks farmers. And this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. Infact, a lot of people were killed because of this land reformed Act for which my father was one of the victim It is against this background that, I who was currently staying in Zimbabwean decided to transfer my father's money to foreign account since the law of Ghana prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone in Ghana.
As the only son of my father, I am saddle with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have got. The Ghana government seems to be playing along with them. I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in Ghana for fear of going through the same experience in future since both countries have similar political history. Moreover, the Ghana Foreign Exchange Policy does not allow such investments for an asylum seeker.
As a businessman, who I have to entrust my future since both my future and of my family are in your hands, I must let you know that this transaction
is risk free. If you accept to assist my family and me all I want you to do for me is to make arrangements and come to Ghana,so that you can help me go to the Security Company and tell them that you are my Uncle,because they refuse to give me the sum of US$7.5 Million (Seven Million Five Hundred United States Dollars), this money was deposited in a box as germ stones to avoid much demurrage from Security Company.
The Security Company knowing that i am the only sorviver of my family and that i am just a little boy of 18 Years old they are playing with me ,please my friend i need you to help me and get this money out of the Security Company if you do this for me i will follow you to your country so that i can countiue my studies and there you can help me invest this money in the right field.
Contact me with the below e-mail, and Telephone number while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction
