<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />My dear,
Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you.
Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding in succeed sometimes in life. 
I am a widow mother including twins. By name i am Mrs. Maria Stevens.  wife of Mr. Dave Stevens, who was murdered by the Zimbabwean veterans and irate black people on the 15 Apr 2000. I am writing you from <*xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Cotonou in the Republic of BENIN. If well executed as your contact is via ONLINE INTERNET NETWORK through the consultancy directory during my search for a reliable and honest person to transact this business with. I write to solicit for your special assistance to a family shattered by a tyrannical government led by a dictator and his (ZANU-PF) ruling party-president Robert Mugabe. Because of land and farm land crisis in Zimbabwe, the government secretly sponsored the war veterans and some irate party members to dispossess the land being occupied by white farmers. This action has led to the killing of some members of opposition party including my husband (Dave Stevens )
My parents died when I was just 18 and since then my husband took me so special. Before the death of my husband he secretly told me that he deposited the sum of Eight Million United States Dollars.(US$8.000,000) in one Financial Institution in the republic of BENIN West Africa. He told me that he moved this money out Zimbabwe because of land and farm land crisis  and he wanted to use it for his farm investment before the Zimbabwe farm land crisis. He my husband requested me to seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice who will help me claim and transfer this money into a bank account so that i will start a new life over there while my children  continue their education that is why I want this fund to be transferred into your account so that you will assist me and my children to invest it in your country. Hence, if you agree to assist me, i will be pleased to offer you some part of the money for your assistance.
Presently i am in a refigure camp in Cotonou in the Republic of BENIN where i have come to take refuge and also to inquire about the Financial Institution where my late husband deposited his fund.
 I need your urgent and confidential response to my private E-mail address:  
Upon your immediate response, I will immediately arrange and send to you all the information's that will empower your good self in finalizing the transaction with the Financial Institution in the Republic of BENIN . And also further information about you is very necessary for me as i can not play on this.
Best regards,
Mrs. Maria Stevens.
