FROM MRS JAMILA R. KUMA Email:firstname.lastname@example.org I am Mrs Jamila Radede, the widow of late Dr.Radede Kuma, who was murdered in a land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact during my search for reliable & competent foreigner to handle a confidential financial transaction, and then I decided to write you. My late husband was among the few black Zimbabwean farmers murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of President Robert Mugabe for his alleged support and sympathy for Zimbabwean opposition party. Before the death of my husband, he took me to Madrid, Spain to deposit the sum of U.S $7.5m (seven Million, five hundred thousand United States Dollars. With a security and finance company for safe keeping. The money was deposited as a gem/precious stone to avoid much demurrage from the security firm. This money was earmarked for the purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland. I am sorry to inform you that I recently suffered stroke as a ! result of present ordeal. This land problem arose when President R. Mugabe introduced a new land Act which wholly affects the White rich farmers and some few blacks who vehemently condemned the 'Modus Operandi' adopted by the government. This resulted to rampant killing and mob actions. I and my family who are currently staying in Abidjan, Cote d'ivoire as refugees or asylum seekers have decided to enter your name as foreigner/beneficiary of the consignment, for further transfer of the funds to a foreign country where we can invest it. I am faced with the dilemma of claiming/investing this amount of money in Cote d’ivoire for fear of encountering the same experience in future since both countries have the same political history. Moreover, Cote d’ivoire monetary policy/law does not allow such investment hence I am seeking for an asylum or refugee. You can as well read more about the crises in my country and about this situation on the following sites: http://www.cnn.com/2001/WORLD/africa/08/12/violence.zimbabwe/ http://www.guardian.co.uk/zimbabwe/article/0,2763,562148,00.html I must let you know that this business is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not necessary matter. So if you are willing to assist us claim the ownership of this consignment, I and my family have agreed to give you 20% of the total funds, 40% will be for a joint business venture I will be doing with you and another 35% will be for me and my family which we shall also invest in your country and the remaining 5% will be mapped out for all expenses we may incure during the transaction. Therefore, if you are willing and interested to render the needed assistance. Please furnish me your private phone and Fax number for easy and better communication.
