From:Mr Martins Mazuri.


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 
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 Africa.

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,
