E-mail:email@example.com ATTN:President & CEO. CRY FOR HELP Good day, I found your contact from the industrial computer search here in South Africa,for you are liable and capable foreign partner that will assist me and my family. I am Mrs. GRACE OSBONE,the wife of ( Late) Mr. TIMOTHY OSBONE of Zimbabwe. During the current war against farmers in Zimbabwe and from the support of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, all the white farmers were ordered to surrender their farms to his party members and his followers. My husband who was one of the best farmers in our country and treasury of the farmer's co-operation did not support his ideas and so the party members invaded my husband's farms and burnt everything in the farm, killed my husband and made away with a lot of items in my husband's farm. Afterthe death of my husband, my children and I decided tomove out of Zimbabwe because of our lives were in danger with the money that my husband kept in his hidden safe in my house. The amount contained in the safe in my house is US$32M(Thirty Two Million USD) and we decided to code the money and move to the Republic of South Africa wherewe deposited the money in a security company as valuable item. So I decided to make a contact with an overseas firm whom will assist me to move this money out of South Africa security company, because we are asylum seekers here in South Africa. So if you consider this proposa, we have agreed togive you 20% of the total sum for helping us to move this money out to your country and 5% will be mappedout for expenses both of us may participate in this transaction,and 75% will be for me and my family to invest in your country. what i want from you is your personal telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. I look forward to your reply through my email. firstname.lastname@example.org http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/918781.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/715001.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/1063785.stm Strength and tears: Angélique Kidjo sees Thanks Best regards.
