60,BERTRAMS CNR STIEMENS STREET BRAAMFONTEIN JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA INVESTMENT INQUIRY I CAN UNDERSTAND THE SURPRISED THAT THIS LETTER WILL CAUSE YOU, BUT WILL ADVISE THAT YOU CONSIDER IT AS A REQUEST FROM A FAMILY IN DARE NEED OF ASSISTANCE. I AM MRS. THOBILE MOORE OF BULAWAYO TOWN IN ZIMBABWE. YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION CAME TO ME FROM YOUR COUNTRY'S TRADE JOURNAL DURING MY SEARCH FOR A RELIABLE AND GOD-FEARING PERSON THAT CAN ASSIST MY FAMILY AND I QUITE BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN BE OF GREAT HELP IN THIS REGARD. THE BUSINESS IS THE INTENTION OF MY FAMILY TO TRANSFER THE SUM OF FIVE MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$5.5M) TO YOUR ACCOUNT FOR MY FAMILY’S INVESTMENT PURPOSES. THE ABOVE AMOUNT REPRESENTS PROCEEDS FROM SALE OF MY LATE HUSBAND’S LANDED PROPERTY IN ZIMBABWE. MY HUSBAND WAS A FAMOUS FARMER IN ZIMBABWE AND WAS ASSASINATED BY THE PRESIDENT'S (ROBERT MUGABE) AIDES FOLLOWING THE TERRIBLE CRISIS THAT RESULTED FROM HIS LAND USE REFORM POLICY, WHICH HAS LEFT THOUSANDS OF ZIMBABWEANS (INCLUDING WHITE FARMERS) DEAD. MY LATE HUSBAND SENSED THESE TERRIBLE DEVELOPMENTS WHICH HAVE BEEN GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY FOR YEARS AND SOLD HIS FARM LANDS INCLUDING OTHER LANDED PROPERTIES OF THE FAMILY AND SECRETLY SENT THE PROCEEDS (US$5.5M) TO A PRIVATE SECURITY COMPANY IN A NEIGHBOURING COUNTRY, SOUTH AFRICA. IT IS IMPORTANT TO STATE HERE THAT MY LATE HUSBAND SECURED THE FUNDS IN A DEPOSIT BOX AND DECLARED CONTENT OF THE BOX AS “FAMILY VALUABLES”. THIS MEANS THAT THE SECURITY COMPANY IS NOT AWARE THAT ACTUAL CONTENT OF THE DEPOSIT BOX IS MONEY. THIS WAS FOR OBVIOUS SECURITY REASONS. IT WILL BE IMPORTANT HERE TO INFORM YOU THAT DUE TO OUR POLITICAL STATUS IN SOUTH AFRICA (POLITICAL ASYLUM), WE ARE NOT ALLOWED BY LAW TO INVEST THE MONEY IN SOUTH AFRICA. THIS IS WHY WE ARE SEEKING THE ASSISTANCE OF A FOREIGNER TO RECEIVE THE MONEY ON BEHALF OF MY FAMILY FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES. AGAIN, I WANT TO INFORM YOU THAT A CERTAIN BANKER BY PROFESSION, A SOUTH AFRICAN, WHO HAS BEEN A FRIEND TO MY FAMILY EVEN BEFORE MY HUSBAND’S DEATH, WILL BE INVOLVED IN THE TRANSFER EXERCISE. HE HAS ALREADY MADE ADEQUATE TRANSFER PLAN. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TO HELP MY FAMILY IN THIS REGARD, WE SHALL GIVE YOU 25% OF THE PRINCIPAL AMOUNT. APART FROM THIS, WE SHALL ALSO MAKE YOU A PARTNER IN ALL THE INVESTMENTS WE SHALL UNDERTAKE IN YOUR COUNTRY. KINDLY CONTACT MY SON WHO IS IN SOUTH AFRICA AND HE WILL JOINTLY WITH THE BANKER, CO-ORDINATE THIS TRANSACTION WITH YOU. LASTLY, I WANT TO INFORM YOU THAT THIS MONEY REPRESENTS MY FAMILY’S FUTURE, AS WE DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER THING LEFT FOR US. SO, IN ADDITION TO OUR REQUIREMENT FOR YOUR CONFIDENTIAL HANDLING OF THIS TRANSACTION, WE WOULD ALSO NEED AN ASSURANCE FROM YOU THAT THE FUNDS WILL BE SAFE WHEN RECEIVED IN YOUR ACCOUNT. YOU CAN CONTACT MY SON, DAN MONO AT THIS IT E-MAILS ADDRESS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU ACCEPT TO ASSIST MY FAMILY WITH THIS REQUEST? YOU CAN CALL MY SON ON THIS NUMBER + 27 83 944 6387 MRS. STELLA MONO (FOR THE MONO FAMILY) THANKS AND GOD BLESS.
