Attn: Owner / Ceo. This might be a surprise to you about where I got your contact address.. But all the same, I believe we do not need to be of blood relatives before we can establish Cordial relationship. Having said this, I think it is very important at this juncture to introduce myself to you and also disclose to you, how I came in contact with your address/profile. My name is Mrs. zama Olds Martin, the wife of late Mr. Martin Olds Martin, of Masingo Province of Zimbabwe. 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 their farms and Lands to his party members and his followers. My husband is one of the richest farmers in our country and because he did not support President Mugabe's ideas. President Mugabe's, supporters invaded my husband's farms and lands and burnt everything in the farms, killing my husband and made away with a lot of items in my husband's farm. For more details visit: www.rte.ie/news/2000/0418/ zimbabwe.html Before my husband's death he made it known to me that he deposited with one of the Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa the sum of US$30.5 Million (Thirty Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with the Security and Finance Company there in South Africa. Then after the death of my husband, we decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where he had deposited the money in the Security Company as valuable items. After reading about you on the internet I believe that some body like you will be capable of handling this kind of transaction so I decided to contact you to assist me to transfer this fund out of South Africa because as I and my families were (Refugee) Asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any bank transaction within South Africa. I have spent months in trying to get an overseas reliable contact, it is worthy to note that people are unreliable these days and even derive joy in telling lies. On this ground I request your unreserved but sincere cooperation devoid of greed in carrying out this transaction so that no one amongst both of us shall defraud each other at the end. I am prepared to split the fund at 70%---30% for you, provided that mine (70%) will be intact at the end. Please Note: All correspondence should be on this email Address: email@example.com I wait your co-operation. Thanks and God bless you. Best Regards. Mrs. Rosemary Martin Olds
