You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know
me personally. I am Mr.Mazuri Martins  , the first Son  of Mr. Philip
Martins ,  who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I
got your contact on the Amercican network online/trade Journal,and decided
to write you. Before the death of my Father , he had taken me to Republic
of South Africa,for annual year holiday  in  (2002) During his holiday he
deposited the sum of US$25.500,00 (Twenty Five  Million  Five Hundred
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 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 a new farm in
Swaziland. This land problem came when Zimbabwean Mr President Robert
Mugabe introduced a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich
white farmers and some few black farmers.

This resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and
some lunatics in the society. In fact, a lot of people were killed because
of this land reformed Act for which my Father  was one of the victims, It
is against this background that, I and my family who are currently staying
in South Africa on a Political Asylum  decided to transfer my Father's
money to any country since the law of South Africa prohibits refugees from
opening any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction
throughout the territorial zones of South Africa , As the first Son of my
Father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign
account where this money could be transferred into without the knowledge
of my government who are bent on taking everything .

All I seek for is an honest businessman or woman, whom I can entrust my
future and that of my family I must also let you know that this
transaction is 100%risk free. If you accept to assist me and my family all
I want from you is for you to make arrangements and come to South Africa,
so that you can help me open a non-resident account in your name which
will aid us in transferring the money into any account you will nominate
overseas. This money we  intend to use for investment and growth in your
country. 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 me for the proper
profitable investment of the money in your Country. Whichever the option
you want, feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money
for all kinds of expenses we might incure in the process of this

 If you you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 20% of
the money while the remaining 75% will remain for me and my family. If
you are really capable and willing to assist me please contact my son 
immediately with this   telephone number,+27 73 130 8560 or this e-mail
address with which I have sent you this message. Finally, please treat
this matter as urgent as possible, I will come to your country as soon as
the money is been transfered into your nominated account.

Thanks for your mutual co-operation.

I expect your soonest response.

Best Regards,

Mr.Mazuri Martins.
