FROM MR.MAZURI MARTINS PHONE+27 73 130 8560 JOHANESSBURG,2001 REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA. STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL Attn:Ceo/Md, 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 transaction. 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. (For the Family)
