                      A PLEAD FOR ASSISTANCE
Dear Sir/ Madam
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not 
know me personally, the purpose of my introduction is that, I am Mrs Theresa Mbofana, the wife  of Mr.Clifford Mbofana, who was recently murdered in the land  dispute in Zimbabwe . I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you.
Before the death of my Husband, he had taken me to Johannesburg to
deposit the sum of US$20.5Million(Twenty Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), in one the private security  company, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe . This money was deposited
in a box as gem stones to avoid much demurrage from Security Company.
This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and established of new farm in Swaziland.
This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe
introduced a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few blacks farmers. And this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact, a lot of people was killed because of this land reformed Act for which my Husband was one of the victim. You can find out more by clicking here :
It is against this background that, I and my only son Gerald who are
currently staying in South Africa decided to transfer my Husband` s
money to foreign account  since the law of South Africa prohibit a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank  account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone  South Africa. As the eldest son of my father, I am saddle with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent from taking everything we have got.
The South African government seems to be playing along with them. I am Faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in future since both countries has similar political history.
 Moreover, the South African Foreign Exchange policy does not allow such investment  as an asylum seeker. As a businessman, who I have to entrust my future and of my  family in  his hands, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free.  If you accept to assist me and my family all I want you to do for me is to make arrangements and come to Johannesburg South Africa, so that you can open a non-resident account which will aid us in transferring the money into any account you will nominate overseas.
This money I intend to use for investment. I have two options for you,
firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction. Or you can go into
partnership with me for the proper profitable  investment of the money in your country. Whichever the options you want, feel free to notify me I have also mapped out 10% of this money for all kinds of expenses incurred in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 30% of the money while the   remaining 60% will be for my investment in your country.
Contact me with the above E-mail Address :( while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction.
Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Theresa Mbofana.
(For the Family)
