From: Mr, Joseph Chuba Aju 
Private Email:
You may be surprised to receive this letter 
from me since you do not know me personally. I am Mr. Joseph A Chuba, 
the first son of Dr. Lewis A Aju, one of the most popular black farmers 
in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my 
country. I got your contact through a legitimate reliable network 
online hence decided to write you. Before the death of my father, he 
had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US14,000,000.00 
million ( Fourteen Million, United States dollars), in one of the 
private Finance / Security company as he foresaw the looming danger in 
Zimbabwe this money was deposited in the Finance / Security company. 
This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals 
for the Farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland.

This land 
problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe introduced a 
new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers and some 
few black 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 were killed because of this Land reform Act for which my 
father was one of the victims. It is against this background that, I 
and my family traveled act of fear in a fishing boat to West Coast 
Island, Bamako Mali from where I am making this contact where we are 
seeking political asylum and more so have decided to transfer my fatherâ
s money to a more reliable foreign account. Since the law of Bamako 
Mail prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to 
be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial 
zone of Mali, As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the 
responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money 
could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are 
bent on taking everything we have got. The South African government 
seems to be playing along with them.  I am faced with the dilemma of 
moving this amount of money out of South Africa for fear of going 
through the same experience in future; both countries have similar 
political history. As a businessman, I am seeking for a foreign partner 
who I have to entrust my future and that of my family in his hands, I 
must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free. If you 
accept to assist me and my family, all I want you to do for me, is to 
make an arrangements with the finance security company to clear the 
(funds) from their affiliate office as I will be given directives for 
the consignment to be moved to from South Africa branch to your region 
pending my arrival to meet with you face to face in your country. But 
before then all modalities will have to be put in place like changes of 
ownership to the fund and more importantly 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 
option you want, feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% 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 20% of the money while the remaining 75% will be for my family also 
for my investment in your country. So, if you are willing to assist us 
contact me with on my Private E-mail address, ( 
before I can open up themodus operandi of this transaction to you in 
detail. This is the beginning of a lasting transaction between you and 
me with the entire Lewis's family.

Thanks and remain blessed 
Joseph Chuba Aju
