Dear Love One. My name is Marisu Mayoya. A complete citizen of the South Africa, husband to the late Mrs Mary Oye Mayoya who died on 15th of May 2002. My WIFE fell sick and She was flown to France for treatment but later died of ulcer and She has been buried. I inherited a total sum of 12.3 million dollars from my late WIFE; this money which is concealed in a metallic trunk box is deposited with a security and finance company here in South Africa. Due to the instruction WE laid down before WE deposited the box, that WE needed maximum security/safety of my consignment and NObody nor organization can trace the where about of the box until I am ready and prepare to claim it. for this reason the security company used their diplomatic means to send the box out of Johanesburg to where they have their undergroundsecrete vault. This deposit was coded under a secret arrangement as a family treasure. This means that the security company does not know the content of this trunk box that was sent from the Johanesburg to Cape Town in South Africa under a diplomatic coverage for safe keeping.My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of the way I found you and perhaps trustworthy to give you this priority of shipping the box of money to any address that you think is very secure and save in your country with your percentage of which we shall chat on soon. In fact, since the death of my WIFE, Her brothers have being seriously chasing me around ,, trying to suppress me so that they might have the documents of his landed properties and confiscate them. They have successfully collected all his properties, yet they never stopped there, they told me to surrender all bank account of my late WIFE, which I did, but never disclose to them this deposit with the security company in CAPE TOWNd', because this is where my future and destiny lies upon. The family of my late WIFE never BEEN aware of the secret existence of this deposit which I DEPOSIT with HER in the security company, and they can never be aware of it. Out of fear of my late WIFE family, and when the situation becomes uncontrollable because of pressure on me from Her family members, I decide to look for a trustworthy person who could assist me retrieve this box of money from the security company for onward lodgement into your account for the purpose of future investment. Consider my situation as a URGENT and come to my rescue. There is need for urgent action because I'm paying $5 dollars per day as a demurrage to the security company for safe keeping this consignment.I give thanks immensely for your co-operation as I look forward to hear from you soon. Hoping to receive your reply on ( email@example.com ) Remain blessed in the Lord. All the best, . MARISU MAYOYA +27 7444 638 68
