I NEED YOUR HONEST AND KIND ASSISTANCE URGENTLY
I know how surprise this letter will come to you, but i would advice that you consider it as a request from a family in dare need of assistance. I am Mrs. Mary Kuba the wife of Mr.Johnson Kuba of Gwanda town in Zimbabwe.Your contact information came to me from your country's trade journal during my search for a reliable and God fearing person that can assist me and my only son, and I quite beleive on my own that you can be of great help in this regard even if i am notacquainted to you before.
The business involves the transfer of Twenty Million Dollars Only (US$20,000,000.00) into your account for safe keeping. This fund is inherited from my late husband who was assasinated by the president's (ROBERT MUGABE) aides in view of taking his lands and property during the crisis on October 22nd.2001 which lead to the killing and barnishing of foreign(white) farmers. After the death of my husband on October 22nd.2001 (A day I can never forget) I was approached by our f amily lawyer who told me that my late husband had filed a document with him which stipulates his "WILL".In the "WILL" he specifically pointed and I quote,
Darling, I wish to draw your attention to the sum of Twenty Million United State Dollars (US$20.000.000) which I deposited with a Security Company in Johannesburg South Africa with all the documents filed by our lawyer. In case of my absence on earth caused by death only, you should solicit for a foreigner that can assist you to transfer the money out of there (SA)for investment purposes. I have saved this money to make the future of my only son "Stevel Kuba"and he told me, my wife immediately the government started eyeing my business and involvements with the white farmers. Please take good care of "Stevel" and yourself, we shall meet topart nomore.
From the above, you will und erstand that my future especailly the future of my son depends on this money and as such I will be grateful if you can assist us in transfering this fund to your account overseas for our investments. You can contact my son "Stevel Kuba" in South Africa, as he will direct you with our lawyer to arrange the modalities of transfering this fund without any hitch. For your assistance we have agreed to offer you 25% of the whole fund, 5% for any expenses that may be incurred while the remaining 70% will be kept for us under your care till our arrival in your country. Please i want to tell you that my family living here in South Africa is not confortable with us expecially my only son Stevel. God bless you for your anticipated undertstanding and co-operation.
Please don't hesitate to contact my son Stevel as he will direct you with our lawyer to arrange the modalities of transfering this fund wit hout any hitch.
Mr. Stevel Kuba
