Attention: sir, RE: TRANSFER OF ($21,000.000.00 USD} My name is George Alade, I am the operational manager in account section incharge of credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks here in Zimbabwe. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank one of the biggest farmers in Harare (Mr. David Stevens from Harare, Zimbabwe) who was shot dead by the Hungry Troops of president Mugabe.Please see below website for more details from President Mugabe of Zimbabwe. .http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2000/04/18/zim_000418.html There is an account opened in this bank in 1996by this great late Farmer who died without a written or oral WILL attatched to the account. Since his death , I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the manager of his company. The total amount involved is $21,000,000.00 USD. [ Twenty-One million United States Dollar ]. We wish to start the first transfer with $10,000,000.00 [Ten million] and upon successful transaction without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining balance to your account. I have secretly discussed this matter with the general manager of my bank who I must involve in order to have a smooth and a successful transfer of the fund to any foreign bank account which you are going to nominate.On this note, I decided to seek for a reliable foreigner who will act as the foreign beneficiary of the fund from the deceased by providing his/her bank account where the fund will be transferred into for immediate investment on any viable project as no one has come up to be the next of kin. The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than six years without claim hence the money will be recalled to the government treasury as unclaimed after this long period of domancy. In view of this I got your contact through my personal search to see if you can assist by providing your safe bank account for the transfer or find a reliable person who will be capable of receiving such amount in his or her personal account. At the conclussion of the transfer 60% of the fund will be for us here, we would give you 25% of the total transfer sum, 10% for charity both in Africa and in your country while the remaining 5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties might incure during the transfer process. TO PROCEED, I would like you to send me the information of any account of your choice where you will like this fund to be transferred into.This transaction is totally free of risk and trouble as the fund is a legitimate fund which does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act.Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you a detailed information about the transaction. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is 100% risk and trouble free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can be finalized within 7 to 9 banking days, after we present you to the bank as the beneficiary of the fund from the deceased. Thank you while I await your prompt response to this proposal. Best Regards, George Alade Barclays Bank of Zimbabwe Ltd Barclay House PO Box 1279 Corner First St & Jason Moyo Ave Harare Zimbabwe.
