FROM:Mrs GLORY GEZI JUMA ADD:Gauteng,Johanessburg, +27-83-868-1661 South Africa. Attn: REQUEST FOR URGENT ASSISTANCE. DEAR CEO/sir, This may appear a bit surprising to you but very beneficial; as a matter ofurgentcy, i am desparately looking for a foriegn partner whom i can trust to handle some investment or fund movement. I am MRS.GLORY GEZI JUMA wife of late MR.MENTU GEZI JUMA, who was murdered by the Zimbabwean veterans and irrate black people.
I am writing from Zimbabwe. I got your address from the internetthrough 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 andfarm land crisis in Zimbabwe, the governmentsecretly sponsored the war veterans and some irrate partymembers to disposess the land being occupied by white farmers. This action has led to the killing of some members of opposition party including my husband(MENTU JUMA), who did do not support this ill-fated action.
But before the death of my husband, he anticipated some dangers and so he deposited the sum of US$15.4m (Fifteen million four hundered Thousand United States Dollars)in the name of our only son 'RAYMOND at a reputable security company in SOUTH AFRICA with theintention of using it to open fertilizer manufacturing company among other companies in our neighbouring country (Swaziland)after his university education.
On the 29th of July, 2001, the war veterans and some supporters of (ZANU-PF)ruling party trooped into our compound and axed him(my husband) to death. Since then, they have been terrorizing my only son, RAYMOND JUMA, but he managed to escape to a neighbouring country, South Africa as a political asylum seeker (refugee). But his position in South Africa does not permit him to open an account or run any huge financial business. That is why I want this fund to be transferred into your private account so that you will assist him to invest it in your country.
Hence,if you agree to assist us, we will offer you 20% of the money for your assistance, 10% will be for the possible expenses incurred in the process of this transaction, while 70% will be for our family investment in your country through your assistance. I need your urgent and confidential response.
Best regards, GLORY GEZI JUMA(MRS.) FOR THE FAMILYUpon your immediate response, I will immediately arrange and send to you all the INFORMATIONS that will empower your smooth transaction with the security company in SOUTH AFRICA and I will also send to you the agreement that will protect both interest. And also further information about yourself is necessary for i can not play on this. You can as well read more about the crises in my country and about this situation on the following sites:
