I know you will be surprise to receive this latter from me, since you do not know me personally, I am Mrs.Florence Moyo, the wife of Mr. Isaac Moyo who was recently murdered in a land dispute in Zimbabwe. I was furnished with viable information about you, from the international trade center here in South Africa, and in support with the chamber of commerce (JHB). Hence I decided to contact you.
Before the death of my husband, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$27.5Million as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited in one strong metal box as gemstone to avoid much demurrage from the security company. This land problem started when the president of Zimbabwe Mr. Robert Mugabe, introduced a new land act, which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers. This resulted in the killing and mob action by the Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatic in the society, in fact a lot of people have been killed because of this land reform act, of which my husband was one of the victims.
Currently, my family and I are staying in South Africa as asylum seeker (Refugees) but our problem is that as refugees we do not enjoy some certain right, because the South African foreign exchange policy does not allow asylum seekers to own an investment, nor to operate any form of bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction. It is against this background that I decided to transfer this money out of South Africa,and am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account into which this money could be transferred to.
As someone whom I am going to entrust my future and that of my family in his hand, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free as I have all the legal documents of the deposition of my husband's consignment in the security company, which he did on my own name. If you agree to assist my family, all I want you to do is to come down here in Johannesburg, South Africa so that you can open a non-resident account, which will aid us in transferring this money into any of your nominated overseas bank account.
I have two options for you, would you like to have some percentage of this money, I have mapped out 25% for your assistance 5% for any expenses incurred in this transaction and the rest I intend it invest in your country.The second option is to go into partnership with me in any investment I would have in your country.
 Yours Truly ,
Mrs. Florence Moyo
