From:Mrs.Rebecca Walaza 203 prichard street, Johannesburg South
Africa. Reply To; firstname.lastname@example.org Good day, You may be
surprised to receive this letter from me since you don't know me
personally. I am Mrs Rebecca Walaza,the wife of Mr Moyo Walaza who was
recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact
through South African Information Exchange (S.A.I.E) in Johannesburg,
and I decided to solicit for your assistance. My late husband was
among the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by
the agents of the ruling government of president Robert Mugabe for his
alleged support and sympathy for the Zimbabwean opposition party
controlled by the white minority. Before his death he had taken me to
Johannesburg South Africa to deposit the sum of US$22 (Twenty Two
Million United States Dollars) with a Security and Finance Company as if
he Foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited in
a metal box and declare as a personal effects for the use of some of his
friends who were to arrive for the world summit on sustainable
development scheduled to hold in South Africa from 26th of August,2002.
This money was given to my husband by President Robert Mugabe himself,
for investment in South Africa when they were in good terms. The
dispute between my husband and the President arose when the President
introduced a new land reform-act,which adversely affected the rich white
farmers and some black farmers as well. My husband was vehemently
opposed to the "modus operandis"adopted by the government and publicly
opposed it. This brought him in direct conflict with the president.
To achieve his purpose, the president used war veterans to plunder,
loot and occupy all farms belonging to the white farmers and their black
sympathizers. More than Fifty Farmers has lost their lives so far.
Heads of governments from the west,especially Britain and United
States of America have voiced there condemnation of Mugabe's plan.
Subsequently, South African Development Community (S.A.D.C) has
continuously Supported Mugabe's new land act, it is against this
background that I and my two children who are currently Residing in
South Africa have decided to transfer my husband's money into a foreign
account. As a mother of two children, I am saddled with the
responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money
Could be transferred without the knowledge of my Government who are
tactically freezing our family Wealth and South Africa's government
seems to be Playing along with them. I am faced with the dilemma of
investing this money in South Africa for fear of encountering the same
experience in future since both Countries have almost the same political
history. More so, the South African Foreign Exchange policy does not
allow such investment hence I am seeking for an "asylum". As a business
person that I entrusted my Future and that of my children into his
hands, I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free and
the nature of your business does not necessarily matter. For your
assistance, we are offering You 15% of the total sum, 80% for me and my
children While 5% will be mapped out for any expenses we may incurs
during this transaction. We wish to invest our Money on commercial
property based on your advice. Finally, i will demand for assurance that
you will not sit on this money when it finally gets to your personal or
company's account in your country. If this proposal is acceptable with
you, please confirm your interest by immidiate reply. please send your
reply to this e-mail address ; email@example.com Best
Regards. Mrs.Rebecca Walaza.
