Dear Friend

I am Barrister Frank Muller, The Attorney to Mr Rafi Abdul-Hafiz, a national of your country, who was murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe, in early 2006.You can read more on this on:

He owned Diary Farms Limited in Cashel, Zimbabwe. He also owned three Tobacco Farms in Chipinge, and also a majority owner of Glendevon Farm also situated in Chipinge, in Zimbabwe.

However before his death, Mr Rafi Abdul-Hafiz was able to secure with a very good diplomatic contact, he deposited Ten Point five Million United States Dollars (US$10.5M), in safe deposit Security Company in Jonnesburg, South Africa, with hope of transferring same to your country when he met his untimely death.

Since his death I have made several frantic enquiries through your embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives has also unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his name through a business directory I got from the world trade center in Johanesburg, in order to get somebody bearing same name in your country as my client's who will stand in as proxy to clear this consignment.

A notice has been long issued to me by this company to provide my client's next of kin or else, the consignment will be declared as "unserviceable" and therefore confiscated by the Deposit Company.

This is a proposal for you to consider this as a matter of urgency and pay priority attention to it. If this mail appeals to you, kindly give me your urgent response. I am ready to share this consignment with you on a very good negotiable percentage to each party if successfully completed.

In your response, please may I have your contact details such as:
Full Names, ,phone and fax numbers, and nature of business activity. The information will assist me in preparing relevant documents needed to change the consignment of the fund ownership to your name before transfer to you pending my arrival,contact me on my private email address(

I highly regret all inconveniences. Thanks in anticipation of your kind cooperation.
