From: "Edward Ferrazoli" <>

This email with the subject "From Mr Edward Ferrazoli" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Tue, 04 Sep 2007 03:46:56 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was "Edward Ferrazoli" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

this letter might come to you as a surprise as
we have not met before, but I believe that you would be compelled to
help me after going through the contents of this letter. My name is Mr.
Edward Ferrazoli, a divorcee, I am a Zimbabwean. I am a farmer in Zimbabwe.
Basically, I was involved in Agricultural production, until August
(2003), when the government of Robert Mugabe decided to seize all farm-
land(s) owned by whites in Zimbabwe (without compensation). He (Robert
Mugabe) did not stop at that he also went on to expel all White farmers
in Zimbabwe. He implored the services of his war veterans to undertake
his seizure. The war veterans have been accused (correctly) of being
behind the violent occupation of white-owned commercial farms in which
an estimated 70,000 farm workers have been displaced. At least, over
hundreds white farmers and black settlers have been killed since the
farm invasions began in February 2000.Although we know that we are
taking a great risk by staying here in Zimbabwe. At the Moment, our
phone lines are bugged, and all our movements are being monitored by
Zimbabwe (Robert Mugabes) secret Police. Therefore email is the safest
means of communication for now. We (White farmers in Zimbabwe) have
taken our case to the United Nations and even with the threats of
transactions and the subsequent sanctions from the West against the
Zimbabwean authorities, Robert Mugabe (The president of Zimbabwe) still
remains adamant. He is insisting that our farm land (some of which we
bought with our money and most of which we inherited from our fathers)
belongs to the (his) government of Zimbabwe. Since I could not keep the
money in Zimbabwe, I used the services of a Diplomatic Courier Company
to move this money (registered as official documents) out of Zimbabwe
to Abroad. At present, my money totaling US$11,750,000. (Eleven
million, seven hundred and fifty thousand United States dollars) is in
oversea and hopefully, it would be paid into an offshore account. Can
you help me? Are you trustworthy? Can you handle this money? Are you
capable of handling this money? If you can, please contact me all you
need to do is to claim this money from the Security Company. For your
assistance, you will be entitled to 20% of the total sum. You are also
obliged to help/advise on the proper and most convenient way of
investing this money in your country, hopefully, you will consider this
request and respond positively.
Yours sincerely,
Edward Ferrazoli
