You may be surprised to recieve this letter from me since
you do not know me personally, the purpose of my
introduction is that, I am MARTINS MAZURI the first son of
ROBERT MAZURI who was recently murdered in the land
dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact through network
online hence decided to write you,to seek for your co
peration,assistance and understanding. Before the death of
my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the
sum of US$25M  (twenty five Million United States
Dollars), in one of the private security companies, as if
he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money was
deposited in a box as germ stones and family antiques to
avoid much demurrage from the security company.

This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and
chemicals for the farms and establishment 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.

 Infact, 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 prohibits a refugee ( asylum seeker) to open any
bank account or to be involved in any financial
transaction throughout the territorial zone of South
As the eldest son of my father, I am saddle with the
responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreign  account
where this money could be lodged/ 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
investments for political refugees. As a business man, who
I have to entrust my future since both my future and of my
family are 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 you will
aid us in transferring the money into any account which
you will nominate overseas.

This money we intended 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 us
for proper profitable investment of the money in your
country either in your area of expertriate or according to
your directives. Whichever the options you want, feel free
to notify me we have also mapped out 5% of this money for
all kinds of expenses we mighty incurred in the process of
this transaction. If you do not prefer partnership I am
willing to give you 15% of the money while the remaining
80% will be for my family's investment in your country.
Contact me with the above Telephone number+27 73 130 8560
while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy
required in this transaction. Best regards while hoping in
recieving your confirmention soonest for the
speedy takeoff of this project.
Yours Faithfully,
