The sender was, 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 Samuel Eze, the first son of JAMES EZE, who was recently 
murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe.  I was furnished with viable information from the 
International trade Center here in South Africa and in support with the chamber of commerce the 
same South Africa (JHB) hence l decided to write  you.

Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$25.5 
Million (TWENTY THREE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND 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.  In fact, 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 and my family who are currently staying in South Africa 
decided to transfer my father's money to foreign account since the law of South Africa prohibit a 
refugee (asylum 
seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction througout the 
teritorial zone South Africa.  As the eldest 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 South African government seems to be playing 
along with them.  I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa for 
fear of going 
through the same experience in future since both countries have similar political history.  
Moreover, the South African Foreign Exchange policy does not 
allow such investment as an asylum seeker.

As a businessman, who I have to entrust my future and of my family in his hands, I must let you 
know that this transaction is risk free.  If you accept to assist me and my family all I want you 
to do for me is to make arrangements and come to Johannesburg  South Africa, so that you can open a 
non-resident account which will aid us in transferring the money into any 
account you will nominate overseas.  This money I intend to use for investment.

I have two options for you, firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for 
nominating your account for this transaction.  Or you can go into partnership with me for the 
proper profitable investment of the money in your country.  Whichever the options you want, feel 
free to notify me I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of 
expenses incurred in the process of this transaction.  If you do not prefer a partnership I am 
willing to give you 25% of the money while the remaining 70% will be for my investment in your 

Contact me with the above telephone E-mail or fax numbers while I implore you to maintain the 
absolute secrecy required in this transaction.

Yours Faithfully,

(For the Family)
