Dear friend, I am Dr.Shabalala Kampala,the Former Economic&Financial Adviser to the incumbent Zimbabwean President,Mr.Robert Mugabe,a dictator who has been in Power since the independence of the country in 1980. I am right now seeking Asylum somewhere safer,because the President wants me dead because I am one of the new advocates of power change,and he would not hear of this,especially since I threatened to initiate the process of returning all his stolen funds scattered around Europe,due to the fact that my name was used in syphoning the money out of Zimbabwe as his front. Where I now need your help is that since I am now seeking Asylum,and I cannot move around freely,and also cannot return the money.I now intend to use the money for myself and my family.So,I will need your help to take control of the money until such a time when my situation is better.Therefore if you are interested in working with me,then you should quickly send me your direct phone&fax numbers,address and other relevant information to make this transfer effective. The money in question is US$105Million. I will wait to hear from you urgently. Yours truly. Dr.Shabalala Kampala. firstname.lastname@example.org
