Dear Beloved, I am wife of Sacked Deputy President of South Africa, Mr. Jacob Zuma. It is out of desperation that I am sending you this mail. My Husband and I need your assistance in fronting for us as owner of funds that are his, which might come under investigation soon if the fund's ownership is not changed soonest. As my Husband's finances are increasingly becoming the source of investigation by our distractors. The source of these fund's which my Husband earnings would not validate, will further sink him into the cesspool dug by our enemies. It is because of the dire strait we find ourselves that we resolved to reach you and ask for your assistance in this matter. We are averse to letting those we know here into this deal because we are no longer sure of who our friends are. You will be handsomely rewarded if you choose to help us partnerhip in this project. I will be expecting to hear from you, and will disclose further details to you upon your response. Stay Blessed. Best Regards, Lindiwe Zuma.
