FROM: MRS NELSON KHUMALO. HUMBLY SEEKING FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE PLEASE ATTN: Friend, My name is as above stated, the wife of Mr. Daniel Khumalo from the republic of Zimbabwe. It might be a surprise to you where i got your contact address. I got your contact from the South Africa Chamber of Commerce in Johannesburg. During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe, in his effort to chase all the white farmers out of the country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and his followers.My husband, was one of the best and successful farmers in our country and formerly the Finance Minister of Robert Mugabe administration, but he did not support the idea of dispossessing the white farmers of their land. Because of this, his farm was invaded and burnt by government supporters. In the course of this shock, my husband died, and the invaders made away with a lot of items from my husband’s farm.And our family house was utterly destroyed. My husband died out of heart attack. He drew my attention to the sum of US$15.5 MILLION, Which he deposited with a security company in South Africa during his tenure as the Finance Minister of Zimbabwe. My son and I decided to move out of Zimbabwe for our own security, because our lives were in danger. We decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where my husband deposited this money. Till date, the security company is not aware of the content of the consignment because my husband used his diplomatic immunity as at that time to deposit the consignment as important personal valuables. I decided to have contact with overseas person/firm who will assist me to move the money out of South Africa. This becomes necessary because as political asylum seekers, we are not allowed to own or operate a bank account. I want you to immediately confirm your interest in the project contact my son JAMES KHUMALO on +27-73 99 76551 or alternative email email@example.com. As soon as I get your response, I will give you more details on how we can proceed. Thanks and God bless you for your anticipated cooperation. Urgent response waited. Best regards, MRS NELSON KHUMALO.
