The sender was "MR.MARTINS MAZURI" <>, although it may have been spoofed.



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 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,
